Barnard Castle too hot for Gosforth

Saturday 2nd September 2017 Barnard Castle 45 Gosforth 17
 
CRAIC; a sad time for the local and international rugby family with the deaths of Gosforth stalwarts Keith Wade and Bill Charlton, whilst, even the indestructible New Zealand legend Colin “Pine Tree” Meads lost his battle with prostate cancer.

THE MATCH REPORT; Gosforth kicked off down the slope on a sunny, clement afternoon with no appreciable breeze. The home side put Gosforth under early pressure, but Gosforth responded well by counterattacking. BC scored first, their winger Lucas Summers showing his pace and strength and crossing the visitor’s line after a fluent passing move with 10 minutes played, fly half Sam Errington converted.  Gosforth competed well, but were unable to take advantage of the favourable slope and  break through the BC defence. Another forceful run by Summers earned him his second try. Following a scrum close to the BC line, Gosforth came close to scoring but the BC defence was unyielding. However, the visitors were rewarded with a try; a free kick to touch, followed by a lineout win and drive created an opportunity for centre Paddy Smith, who ploughed over to score a try that Mark Anderson converted. The score remained at 12-7 until half time.
BC now had the advantage of the slope, soon their flanker Tom Marston grabbed an early try that Errington converted. Greg Upton got his hands on a loose ball, then, outpacing the Gosforth defence ran 70 metres to ground the ball for a try that took the score to 26-7 with only 6 minutes of the second half played. That soon increased to 33-7, when Sam Errington converted a try by No8 Rob Stanwix, Greg Upton got his second try following a scrum success by BC, he made a blindside break and scored, the conversion attempt hit the post, so Gosforth trailed 38-7 at the close of the third quarter. Stanwix scored his second try after a strong, direct run, Errington’s conversion made the score 45-7 in the home side’s favour.
Gosforth’s spirit was commented upon by several spectators as they kept on attacking, Stephenson went close to scoring then Kieron Locke took advantage of a shrewd kick and well timed pass and powered over for a try. Shortly afterwards, a Gosforth free kick to touch set them up for a lineout win and drive, from which platform hooker Chris Morris crashed over for a try in the corner.
This Saturday we hope to drink to a victory from the Rington’s Cup, following our away trip to Novos. South Shields Westoe rather dented them with a 56-6 win at Wood Terrace, but they will give us a tough game on the 9th.
