Staffs lose out to Cumbria

Staffordshire’s County Championship Shield campaign began with a 20-12 defeat by Cumbria at Stoke.

Staffordshire were 12-0 up at the break after tries from Longton hooker George Glenn from a line out drive and Lichfield wing Dan Rowlands after a quick tapped penalty from Stoke’s Chris Rowley.

Lichfield’s Grant Hallam converted Rowlands’ try but Staffordshire needed more points with a string wind at their backs and Cumbria’s direct rugby secured the win in the second half.
