Barny Triumph Against A Plucky Redcar Defence

In blustery conditions Barnard Castle's domination of the set pieces was the major difference between the two sides.

Barnard Castle kicked off with the wind and the slope in their favour.
Their first try coming after 4 minutes following a driving maul after a defensive kick into touch.
0-5. The conversion being missed in the windy conditions.

After 15 minutes the Barnard Castle backs scored in the corner, following a scrum taken against the head.
0-10 Once again a difficult kick was missed.

Redcar were defending well but in the 30th minute Barnard Castle were awarded a penalty try for Redcar illegally bringing down a maul as it trundled to their line.
0-17. The weather was of course not a factor in the conversion of a penalty try.
Late in the half Barnard Castle scored again from a push over try from the set scrum.
The 'rule book' could not help Barnard Castle this time and the conversion was missed.

Half Time 0-22.

Redcar kicked off the second half with the wind behind them.
After 20 minutes Redcar were pressing the Barnard Castle line but Barnard Castle defence held up and Redcar were unable to capitalise on their possession.

There was the odd glimmer of hope for Redcar such as when Richie Young made a break from inside his own half only to be pulled just inside the Barnard Castle 22 metre line.

Barnard Castle also had a penetrating run when their number 14 broke through but was tackled very close to the Redcar line.
However he made amends shortly after when he was on the end of a good backs move that had swung from the right to the left wing with the number 14 crossing the line and making sure he put the ball down close to the posts.
0-29. No problem with the conversion.

Redcar's heads did not go down and they continued to work hard to try and overcome the Barnard Castle defence. Drew Reader was unlucky not to be given a touch down from a nice little chip through by Richie Young. Every Redcar supporter felt of course that Drew would have had a better chance of grounding the ball securely had he not been deliberately impeded by a Barnard Castle player as he started his chase of the ball.
Redcar's consolation try came very late in the game, when after a number of pick and drives, the ball was passed quickly to the winger Danny Addison who scored in the corner. The conversion was missed.

Final score 5-29.

Due to their dominance in the scrum and line out, Barnard Castle had the lion's share of possession.
Two of their tries came from rolling mauls and one from a push over.
However Redcar can take heart from their defensive work which at times turned defence into attacking options.
