League Champions Redcar End Season With Another Win

Season ends with a flourish as Redcar see off Blyth’s early challenge.

Redcar kicked off with a slight wind advantage, but it was Blyth who looked the more lively, as they pressured Redcar and played the better rugby, they seemed a different team from the one that Redcar hammered at the start of the season. It was Blyth who scored first with a try from their winger after a mistake from Redcar’s defence, 7 – 0. Redcar hit back 5 mins later when the backs and forwards linked up and prop Steve Bryce dummied the Blyth fullback to score, 5 – 7.

There then came a period of 15 mins or so when Blyth and Redcar both had opportunities and chances but the defences held out, it was Redcar’s winger and try machine Craig Newlands, who broke the deadlock and scored his first try, which was also unconverted, 7 – 10. On 30 mins substitute Danny Addison replaced Matty Curry, who went off for some physio treatment. Blyth scored their second try on 34 mins when another mistake from Redcar gifted the winger with an easy chance and he ran it in, in the corner, 12 – 10. Redcar regained the lead just before half time, with a try from centre Josh Dixon.

Half Time Blyth 12 Redcar 15

Blyth restarted the game but it was Redcar who dominated most of the play from then on, as Blyth tired and more gaps appeared, Craig Newlands got his second try,12 – 20, quickly followed 2 mins later by his hat-trick try which at last was converted by Danny Addison, to a great sarcastic cheer from Redcar’s travelling supporters, 12 – 27.

The final try of the game also came from Craig Newlands, after yet another charging burst from centre Brian Foreman, who was playing his last game for the club before moving to Jersey, Brian had several great runs and was unlucky not to score but he “battled on” till the end. The game was held up for a minute or two before the conversion was taken due to a minor fracas off the ball, then Richie Young drop kicked the conversion and the final whistle blew, to end a very successful season for Redcar, all that was left was for the presentation of the cup from the league secretary to the first team captain Shane Hurley and his magnificent team.

Final Score Blyth 12 Redcar 34.
