East Retford 2nd XV 50 Pts V Yorkshire Main 1st XV 22 Pts

Retford played hosts to Yorkshire Main in a friendly match this week wanting to shake off their defeat from the previous week and return to winning ways.

Retford knuckled down and went on to do just that. Retford began the game by kicking to the opposition and through some fantastic work from Michael Green the ball was instantly won back from the kick off and with this Retford was in a strong position to start attacking.
It did not take long for Will Wilkinson to rumble over the line and nearly kept going over the dead ball line to score the first points of the game, try converted by Jack Thomas. Off to a fantastic start Retford kept the pressure on and whilst absolutely dominating in the set pieces whether it be in the power of the scrums or in the precision of the line outs the forward work rate was tremendous and it wasn’t long until Harry salathiel went through to score under the sticks, Try unconverted.
However, the opposition were not giving up just yet as several penalties were given away allowing Yorkshire main to make valuable metres up the field until they ended up kicking for a penalty in front of the sticks allowing them to get on the scoreboard. There was a good battle between both teams in the middle of the field both making good tackles and some good running, but it was Rupert Innes that broke through tacklers to score his first try of the game, try converted again by Thomas.
So as the minutes passed it was apparent that the strength of Retford’s forwards were being used to the home sides advantage using the scrums to allow running room for the backs to cover good ground. From a nice piece of play Retford were in a strong attacking position with a combination of forwards and backs ready to attack when suddenly coming at full pace off of the wing Salathiel ran through several would be defenders to score once more under the posts. Try converted by Thomas.
Just as Retford thought they had put the game to bed a series of missed tackles and penalties allowed Yorkshire main to go over again scoring a converted try. This brought the first half to a close and with some fresh legs brought on at half time Retford were eager to get the second half underway.
The second half began the same way very much as the first half began utilizing the forwards and allowing the backs to run aggressively allowing them to make good ground when once again Innes broke through to score, converted by Thomas. With this new burst of energy, it allowed the Retford side more room to run and play some exciting rugby allowing Marcus Pymm and Michelle Sykes to go over the try line one try converted by Thomas.
The opposition did not give up as they ran in two tries to close the score however it was a last minute caught interception pass that allowed Edward Bailey-Hobbs to go screaming down the pitch to score again try unconverted. This was the end of the game. Man of the match to the forwards went to Michael Green for his outstanding attack and defence and in the backs went to Rupert Innes for an all-round solid performance; Donkey of the match was awarded to Martin Galloway for having no doubt the worst five minutes of his rugby carrier when he eventually came on.
