Redcar Give League Leaders A Shock

Redcar came out of the blocks with all guns firing and City were rocked.

Redcar kicked off on a lovely day, just made for running rugby and in the first minute Redcar pounced on a city mistake and centre Matty Curry scored to give Redcar an early lead 5 – 0. It took City 15 mins to recover their composure and start to play the sort of rugby which had put them top of the league, when they scored a converted try, 5 – 7. On 19 minutes Redcar came storming back when an attacking move was stopped and City penalised, Brad Stovell to a quick tap and was tackled illegally by City fly half, Redcar drove on to the line and hooker Chris Clitheroe dived over to score, Danny Addison converted and City’s fly half received a yellow card,12 – 7.

City’s woes continued as their winger No.11 also received a yellow card on 21 mins, for a deliberate knock on as Redcar once again attacked. Danny Addison extended Redcar’s lead with a penalty on 30 mins, 15 – 7. City hit back on 36 mins with a try, 15 -14, before Addison kicked another penalty, 18 – 14. City scored their 3rd try to take the lead just before half time.

Half Time Redcar 18 Durham City 19

As the game restarted Redcar seemed to lose concentration and City ran in two more tries on 50 mins and 55 mins, 18 – 33. Redcar then woke up and put in a sustained period of attack and were rewarded with a try on 64 mins from Danny Addison, 23 – 33, but it was all they could muster as City scored two more unanswered tries on 66 and 70 mins, 23 – 47. In the final 10 mins Redcar continued to battle and City received their 3rd yellow card, centre No.12, on 78 mins for a high tackle, but the game was over for it to matter.

Final Score Redcar 23 Durham City 47.

A great performance from Redcar against all the odds, Redcar’s scrum destroyed the visitors and that’s the first time this season, there were some moments of lost concentration and wayward kicking, which didn’t find touch and gave away possession, which gave City easy tries, but overall a good and entertaining game. Some notable performances from Drew Reader, Steve Johnson, Brad Stovell and Matty Curry but captain Richie Young was awarded the M.O.M.
