RUGBY UNION - Birmingham and Solihull Bees match abandoned after home player suffers broken leg

BIRMINGHAM and Solihull Bees saw their weekend match against Coventry Welsh abandoned on 43 minutes after home player Adam Trombley suffered a broken leg.

With Bees 10-7 ahead on the scoreboard, Trombley fell awkwardly at the start of the second period, breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle which forced the referee to abandon the game.

The Counties 2 Midlands West (East) game will now take place on Friday, March 8 with kick-off at 7.30pm at Portway.

Bees raced into a 10-point lead as Calum Antonio scored the game’s opening try on seven minutesĀ  before Jake Hendon marked his return from a 180-day absence with a try on 15 minutes.

Coventry responded with a converted try of their own three minutes later to reduce Solihull’s lead to three points at the break.

However, almost straight from the restart, young back row forward Trombley sustained a broken leg and dislocated ankle following a fall which brought an abrupt halt to the contest.




Trombley is doing well following his injuries and is due to see the surgeon today (Tuesday, March 5) regarding an operation to put a plate in his leg.

He had his ankle put back in place in hospital following the incident last weekend and is currently in a cast with Trombley learning how to get by on crutches.
