Young N.E.W Ravens are tested against Top Side Dragons
Following last weeks victory Ravens were set to face high flying Coventry Dragons. Last weeks 20 strong side was reduced to 14 on another difficult away game. Ravens knew this was always an unlikely task but a young and enthusiastic side went to see what they could do against the vastly experienced Dragons.
Ravens conceded early in the 3rd and 6th minute before putting in a strong defence for the next 10 minutes.
Eventually Ravens fought back and crossed the line in the corner for Jake Harley-Yeadon’s first ever Ravens try, who only made his Ravens debut last weekend. The conversion was narrowly missed but the 4 points incensed the side to move forward. Ravens then struggled to cope with the barrage of trys which would follow.
Ravens never gave up but found it impossible to repel the aggressive and brutal attack of the ruthless Dragons.
This was a learning game for many of the young Ravens and a hard lesson it was. They all stood up against what was a far superior side and emerged with only a dented pride.
Ravens hope to move onward and upward to one of their target games next week away against Telford Raiders.
