American Football: Monarchs put to the sword again

England Monarchs' poor start to the season continued as they followed last week's opening defeat by Frankfurt Galaxy with a 31-7 loss to Rhein Fire at Ashton Gate, Bristol. England repeatedly turned the ball over and twice when quarterback Josh LaRocca found the end zone, he was intercepted. The tone was set when they conceded seven points the first time their defence took to the field. Derrick Clark burst through for a one-yard touchdown inside three minutes and 48-year-old Manny Bergsmuller celebrated his appearance as professional gridiron's oldest player with the extra point.
