Retford Take Derby Day Spoils

42-17

After a heavy defeat the previous weekend to Tupton Retford were looking to prove a point against local rivals Worksop. The visitors started the brighter of the two teams with some good attacking play down the wing. Once Retford turned over the ball they immediately looked dangerous on the attack. After some quick ball Simon Phillips stepped across the back line and popped the ball to the on rushing Ali Waring to score the opening try of the day with Preece adding the extras.

Worksop quickly replied just four minutes later with a score in the corner after failing to drive through the middle. The game remained tied until the half hour mark when Mikey Phillips scored in the corner from a scrum after Dan Fielding and Michael Green had been held up over the line after some strong running. An excellent conversion from the touchline by Preece took the score to 14-7.

Retford quickly extended their lead with some excellent forward play by Ed Baily-Hobbs and Michael Green led to a score for Green. Converted to give Retford a comfortable 21-7 lead. What followed as a part of the game that nobody wishes to see with Worksop front row Alex Walker going down with a neck injury after a scrum. The game was halted for an hour for the ambulance to arrive and deal with the incident. Fortunately, after scans and testing it was confirmed Alex had only jarred his neck and some mild concussion.

After the delay Retford started where they left off with Dan Fielding on his first appearance of the season crashed over for the bonus point try. From the turnaround Worksop were first to strike in pursuit of the bonus point. Retford soon found their rhythm again with JJ Freeman showing excellent pace and footwork to score under the posts.

The final score of the game from Jordan Mee after a well-timed pass from Michael Green. However, there should have been another try after Josh Nicklin had danced through the defence only to be disallowed by the referee for unsportsman like conduct from Mikey Phillips.

The Game finished 42-17 to the home side who travel to Amber Valley next week in the second round of the RFU Cup. Man of the matches awarded by the away team were captain Dan Preece and fullback Josh Nicklin. Donkey this week goes to Mikey Phillips for having a try disallowed.
