Dartmouth RFC 10 Old Technicians RFC 30

"Injuries to Dartmouth Players are taking its toll"

The number of injured players currently at Dartmouth Rugby Club is taking its toll. They again had to field an understrength team when they took on Old Techs (Plymouth) last Saturday at Norton playing fields.

The visitors who were the fitter side, contained a number of members from the Commando Squadron and ran out convincing winners by 10-30.

Dartmouth put up a good performance in the first half and managed to keep the score at 10-17.
The home side put out a front row of Dec Hammond, Tom Clark and Fred Bancroft, whilst normal prop and captain John Dingle found himself in the centre.
A gusting wind across the field made it difficult to gain good possession from the line out and the game was marred by numerous penalties.

After only 7 minutes, a break by Old Techs three quarter line saw centre Dave Clack go through under the posts.
Conversion by Billy Evans 0-7

Dartmouth came back into the game with some driving runs down field by John Dingle, number 7 Ricky Seymour and number 5 Myles Churchill.
A shoulder charge by and Old Tech player gave Dartmouth a penalty which was kicked by number 10 Luke Chase taking the score to 3-7 after 22mins.

The home side were unable to win clean ball at the line out and one loose ball was gathered by number 10 Billy Evans for the visitors and he went over in the corner with Dartmouth players clinging onto him.Evans converted his own try.
3-14
Not to be disheartened, Dartmouth came straight back at Old Techs and played their best passage of rugby in the last 15 minutes of the 1st half.
A break down the right wing by number 11 Xavier Picot took play right up to the visitors 10mtr line. Captain John Dingle was on hand to receive the ball and he battled himself to the line for a corner try.
A Luke Chase touch line conversion closed the gap to 10-14.

The last couple of minutes of the half saw Dartmouth knock on and then get penalised for playing on the ground.
A simple penalty was kicked by Billy Evans to take the half time score to 10-20.

In the 2nd half, Dartmouth missed an early penalty.
Indiscipline crept it on both sides and referee Luke Collins warned both packs.

Dartmouth again tried to run the ball with winger Piers Benjamin putting in some penetrating runs after catching high balls.
However Dartmouth gave away a penalty for holding and number 10 Evans for Old Techs, who was now controlling the game added another 3 points.

As a result of further indiscipline by both sides, the ref had no option other than to issue a yellow card. It could have gone to either team, but on this occasion it was a Dartmouth player who was sent to the Sin Bin.

With only 14 men on the field and being the fitter side Old Tech scored two quick tries. One coming from Centre Matt Simmonds and the last try coming from hooker Darren Kassell, taking the final score to 10-30.

Dartmouth Team Manager Andrew Tomkinson said after the game.
" I was hugely disappointed with today's result especially at home. But, Old Techs were at full strength and we were having to play people out of position.
But , I still thought it was a winnable game even going into the final 20 minutes.
However, their number 10 dictated the whole game, so credit where it is due to Old Techs, as not many teams come to Dartmouth and walk away with a Bonus Point win.
We hope to get more players back from injury and head to Tamar Saracens this Saturday and are looking for a positive result."
