Keeping up the winning habit!

Highly entertaining match

Written by Malcolm Stokoe Weather Breezy and Sunny
On our first league visit to our old friends, Ashington, both players and alicks were very well treated by the hosts. The latter were well wined and watered by Ash's officials - many thanks for that; the former had a titanic tussle with their opponents, before finally posting an excellent and entertaining win.
The match started with Gosforth kicking off into a stiff breeze and bright sunshine. The first scrum was, hopefully, a portend of what was to follow with Gos exerting a mighty push, giving us the platform to score the first points, when a powerful run by newly created centre, Andrew Camplejohn, resulted in a try by the posts, converted by Mark Anderson on eight minutes. However this early pressure and success were soon to be negated by some excellent, speedy ripostes by the home backs. A penalty and two conversions by home full-back, Ryan Dodds, and two long distance run-ins by Dodds himself and centre, John Tuck, saw the home side take a 7-17 lead. Worse was to follow for the visitors as a yellow card for Darren Kelly made life even more difficult for the stretched Gos defence - only a brilliant last minute tackle for that noted hitman, Anderson, prevented a further home score! The pressure mounted, as, just before Kelly's return, home hooker, Greg Henderson, crossed for a third try again converted by Dodds (7-24). On 35 minutes Gos got their first penalty of the match. This gave them a good field position and enabled our other converted centre, Adam Barrass, to crash over by the posts for a try on half-time, which was converted by Anderson. Half-time score was 14-24.
Ash kicked off the second half with the wind in their faces and after some multiple positional changes by Gos, some intensive pressure and hard direct running by Gos culminated in a score in the left hand corner by replacement winger, Jack Levinson, converted magnificently from the touchline by Anderson to narrow the gap to three points (21-24) on 48 minutes. Gosforth kept up the pressure and scored a bonus point fourth try through Camplejohn, again converted very well by Anderson, giving Gos the lead again at 28-24 on 58 mins. This was to be wiped out again when a limping Tuck forgot to limp as he scorched over for a fourth try for Ash (28-29) on 68 mins. This stirred Gos into moving up a gear or two. After Andy Black had a try disallowed by the ref on advice from the TMO (Tony Manley Obviously!) replacement prop, Dave Robinson, sprinted over from half a metre and Anderson continued his scoring from the tee. (35-29 on 75 mins). A gradually despairing home side had to attack from deep and a loose pass along the line was gobbled up by Anderson, who scored a rare try under the posts, which he duly converted. (42-29) going into injury time. There was just time for a shrewd Anderson kick to bounce on its point and a rampaging Barrass ploughed over for his second try. Mark Anderson spoilt his day by hitting the post with the conversion! Final score was 47-29 to Gosforth.
Highlight of the day has to go to Mat Struthers, who completely lost his jersey in a tackle but kept a hold of the ball, which got enveloped in the said jersey. Tom Jones then passed the whole parcel out, leaving both players and referee, Anthony Manley both bemused and amused!!
Next week sees us back at Broadway, where we face old adversaries, Ponteland, in the NRU Plate Competition. KO is 3pm.
