Otley 17 Bedford 23

By Oscar the Otter - February 2 2009
Otley 17 Bedford 23 Otley followed up last weekend's excellent display at Plymouth with another battling performance at home to Bedford. This time Otley's endeavour was rewarded with a bonus point when Ian Shuttleworth converted Dan Hyde's try from the touchline with the last kick of the game. Similar performances are sure to see Otley record a few wins before the end of the season.
