Royals overcome disappointing Falcons

Faced with a run chase of just 122, the Falcons disappointed with the bat, collapsing to a total of just 65-7 before batsman Steffan Jones offered a faint chance of victory with a quick fire 21.
Chris Whelan led the way, picking up four wickets to help the Royals seal victory in commanding style despite setting the home side a below par run chase.
Having won the toss, Vikram Solanki (28), James, Cameron (17) and Ben Scott (17) over come a poor start to help the Royals reach a total which was somewhat surprisingly easy to defend.
