A LAST gasp missed conversion attempt saw Birmingham Bulldogs lose to Telford Rangers by just a single point in a superbly contested match that finished 24-23 to the visitors.

After ten scoreless opening minutes, the home side took the lead thanks to a try from Adam Walker with Danny Bancroft slotting home the conversion.

Play was then held up for several minutes following an injury to a Telford player before the Bulldogs stretched their lead to ten points with a converted try by Dario Milosalvelgvic.

Telford replied in kind by getting on the scoreboard themselves but James Latham rounded off the half with a fine try to ensure the hosts took a 14-6 lead into the break.

After the re-start the Bulldogs picked up where they left off by scoring a converted try from Taylor following a great break by Farnham.

Telford then hit their straps with two converted tries in ten minutes which gave them a four-point lead which became five as the visitors scored a drop goal.

With two minutes to go Birmingham’s Farnham cemented his man-of-the-match accolade by crashing over late on down the left flank but Bancroft missed the all important conversion as his kick curved just outside the post and the referee blew for full-time.
