Tynedale 35 – 10 Wharfedale

September 25th, 2016 Comments off

Following immediately on the exhilarating performance against Hinckley, this match was a major disappointment for the Greens, who were brought back to earth with a resounding bump by tough-tackling and fast-running opponents.

In truth the final score could well have looked even worse, Tynedale having missed 6 shots at the posts. Six tries to one gives a truer reflection of the balance of play.

Having gone 13-0 in arrears with the first quarter barely over, the Greens stopped the rot for a while and even threatened briefly to claw themselves into the game with a penalty try and a penalty in the closing minutes of the half, changing round at 13-10.

Hopes of a recovery were soon dampened when the second half got under way. The first of 4 home tries came 6 minutes after the restart and, while Wharfedale stemmed the surge for the remainder of the 3rd quarter – without themselves seriously threatening the home line – it seemed only a question of time before the speedy Tyne backs broke through again.

The floodgates opened in the final quarter, 3 further tries cementing a thoroughly deserved Tynedale victory.

The full report will follow shortly.
