Herefordshire opened their 2023-24 Inter County Championship season with a strong performance away at Avon, recording a 29-11 (220-152) victory.
Facing an opponent they had not been drawn against in several years and with a number of players unavailable, Herefordshire travelled down the M5 unsure as to what the day ahead would hold. However, The Bulls started the match well, taking all 8 points from the first session before shared points in the triples and fours left the score at 12-4 at the halfway stage. Despite an Avon fightback in the third session, Herefordshire battled on to hold 19 points ahead of the final session of the day, taking the bonus points in both the singles and the pairs. Convincing victories in the triples and fours gave Herefordshire the final two bonuses on offer to start the season off in an impressive fashion.
