1ST XV Match Report - Dronfield v Coalville

COALLATERAL DAMAGE!

Coalville damaged Dronfield's promotion ambitions with a win at Gosforth Fields.

Today there was a welcome return to the Dronfield team for Joe Cooke starting at prop and a start at ten for the evergreen Will Moroney.

Dronfield started down the slope but the first quarter was evenly matched and it was 22 minutes before the first score, a Joe Farrell penalty. 3-0
Full back Joe slotted a second 5 minutes later. 6-0

The first try of the game came on 37 minutes by Coalville and came from a driving maul from a lineout move. 6-5

On 39 minutes there was a scuffle which resulted in a reversed penalty and a yellow card for one of the Coalville Locks. Once again Joe slotted the points.

HALF TIME 9-5

It did not take Coalville long to score in the second half with a try on 43 minutes, missed tackles costing Dronfield. 9-12

Another try followed 5 minutes later for Coalville and they were able to score the bonus point try on 60 minutes. 9-24

Dronfield went hard at Coalville for the last quarter of the game but could not make the breakthrough.

FINAL SCORE 9 - 24

Next game for Dronfield is away at league leaders West Bridgford, and is looking like a must win if Dronfield are to progress this season.

It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
