The Wharfedale Ramss opening game of this seasons campaign didn’t get off to a winning start. Wharfedale started well enough, playing uphill on Brod’s sloping pitch. The opening try came from Jamie Coultas snatching an interception and running 3/4 of the pitch to touch down under the posts. J Davis converted. Brods applied more pressure and eventually broke Wharfedale’s defence after 25 minutes to level the score and then again to take the lead.
Wharfedale had to shuffle their pack after a front row injury. Then before half time, Jamie Coultas got his second try after some good inter passing wide out.
The second half saw Wharfedale now playing downhill apply pressure on Brods line and were rewarded with a quickly taken tap penalty try and conversion by J Davis to take the lead. Wharfedale could not contain Brod’s forwards and with their ever increasing dominance in the scrum scored 3 tries in the final quarter to take the game from Wharfedale’s reach.
