Local Derby Match Ends With A Win for The Home Side (report from to Hugh Bernard)

Redcar overpowered in the first half, but gain some reward it the second.

Stockton and Redcar renewed their rivalry which has been ongoing for nearly 100 years. It was Redcar's first visit to Stockton’s new ground and unfortunately it may be a few years before they visit again. Both teams had players missing as the game had been rearranged on an International rugby weekend.
Stockton played the more dynamic rugby in the first half and were able to score four try's before the break.

Half Time Stockton 25 Redcar 0

Redcar managed to gain some possession in the second half and continued their policy of moving the ball wide. After an excellent passage of play the ball was passed to Matt Curry who went over in the corner, 25 – 5. Redcar were penalised regularly resulting in two yellow cards which added additional pressure to the team. However after ten minutes rest second row Drew Reader returned to the pitch to provide the highlight of the game. A storming run through most of the Stockton forwards saw him clear, as he approached the try line he was tackled but managed to get away a pass to winger Jamie Butler who crossed for a try. Stockton were held to a draw in the second half (10 – 10), but ran out worthy winners by 35-10.
