Redcar Struggled Against A Well Drilled Gateshead Team

Once again Gateshead put in a strong performance and Redcar came off second best.

Redcar kicked off with a strong wind behind them and from the start it looked like it was going to be an uphill task in the scrums, as they were driven back at a rate of knots on almost every scrum.

Redcar did open the scoring with a penalty after 12 mins from full back Danny Addison, 3 – 0, two mins later Gateshead scored their first of 8 tries, 3 – 5. Redcar put up spirited fight and had some chances, they even had bit of luck when Gateshead were attacking, the referee collided with a Redcar forward and fell to the ground just as Gateshead were scoring, the ref did not see the try so couldn’t award it, but gave a scrum to Gateshead and Redcar being good sports let them score anyway, (well that’s what I thought), 3 - 12.

On 34 mins, the only other time Redcar had anything to smile about was an interception try scored by No.8 Chester Reed, who caught the ball on the half way line and cantered in, breathing heavily, 8 – 12. Gateshead ended the half with another converted try, to bring the score to 8 – 19.

Half Time Redcar 8 Gateshead 19

Gateshead restarted the second half as they had finished the first and after only 2 mins got the bonus point try, 8 – 26. They had a slight hiccup on 54 mins when their prop got a yellow card and had a 10 min rest, but this did not bother them unduly and they ran in 4 more converted tries to complete a good all round performance, leaving Redcar to reflect on their failings.

Full Time Redcar 8 Gateshead 54.
