MATCH DAY REWIND | Birmingham & Solihull

This weekend’s match day rewind comes from November 2009 against Birmingham & Solihull.

The last time Birmingham & Solihull played at Castle Park was in September 2017 as The Bees ran out 57-29 winners against Doncaster Phoenix in the Midlands Premier.

The Brummy club has since fallen on hard times and, after a rebuilding period in the Birmingham merit leagues, will re-enter the league structure in Midlands West 4 next season.

In 2009 however the Midlanders had just been promoted the rugby’s second tier and were keen to make their presence felt. Watch the full game below.
