Redcar Beaten But Not For The Lack Of Effort


Redcar showed spirit as they were beaten but not out played by a Bishop team that were flattered by the final score.

Redcar in their first home game of the season came up against a team that was bigger and weightier in the forwards and that was the main difference between the teams, Redcar struggled for possession and No.8 Steve Johnson was always going back in the scrums but did remarkably well. Once Redcar’s backs had the ball they put pressure on Bishop and were unlucky not to score on several occasions. It was not until 35 played in the first half that Bishop finally scored, from a scrum and a No.8 pick up and drive, 0 – 7.

Half Time Redcar 0 Bishop Auckland 7.

The second half kicked off and after only two minutes Redcar’s fullback Danny Addison kicked a penalty, 3 – 7. Bishop scored another converted try on 47 mins, 0 – 14.Then on 50 mins from a lineout, Redcar’s backs passed the ball along the line and winger Ben Russell scored in the corner, 8 – 14.
Redcar battled on but as fatigue set in and more injuries forced changes, Redcar ran out of steam and Bishop scored three more tries, to bring the final score to 8 – 33.

All credit to the whole squad who never gave up and the score line did not reflect the balance of the game, as Redcar could have scored more points and their backs were far superior to Bishops who had an easier platform giving them more possession.
