1ST XV Match Report - Dronfield v Coalville


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.


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.


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.
