Back on the winning trail

A try-fest at Broadway West

Several changes enforced since last week's game saw three players making their 1st XV debuts. It was quite a quite an international trio with Devon Gurr from NZ; Ryan O'Hagan from Derry and Jack Davies from Cardiff - all featuring strongly during the game. The evergreen BJ Neill was also to feature from the bench.
It was the almost customary breezy day at Broadway West as Mark Anderson kicked off into that breeze. After dominating the open minutes skipper, Ollie Stephenson, finished off an attacking strike, instigated by No8, Adam Barrass, with a try on the right hand side, which was to prove just too difficult a conversion attempt by Ando. Despite continuing to apply a great deal of pressure on the visitors' line, it wasn't until a long raking kick from Kieron Locke on 21 minutes gave Gos a foothold on the Darlington line, which lead to Stephenson crossing by the posts for his second try, converted by Anderson (12-0). Some good attacks by Darlo lead to a penalty ten metres out, which fly-half, Lewis Metcalfe, converted (12-3). This seemed to spur Gos on, as, on 30 minutes, Joe Morris finished off very strongly to score on the left; Tom Jones was on hand to finish another well executed move, started by Stephenson and carried on by Ryan Gillespie, who controlled his foot-rush well to serve Tom. All three were converted by Anderson - also giving Gosforth their try bonus point before half-time, which arrived with the score at 33-3.
Having started the second half, Darlington were to score first on 50 minutes, as No 8, Thomas Wilkinson, scored an unconverted try on the right (33-8). Again Gos responded, this time by our new No 8, Andy Black, who scored by the posts for Ando to convert (40-8). Darlington were not to lie down, however, adding a second try of their own by centre, James Probert , again not converted(40-13). Gosforth were to finish strongly during the final ten minutes, as, firstly, lock, Marc Burton, was to ride a few tackles to score by the posts for Anderson to convert (47-13). There was then a penalty try awarded to Gos as an excellent run by the Kiwi winger, Devon Gurr, was very abruptly ended by a bodycharge by a covering Darlo defender. Who says Kiwis don't leave the ground? (54-13). The scoring finished as Joe Morris crossed for his second and Gosforth's ninth try, again converted by Anderson, leaving the final score at 61-13.
Next Saturday sees us again at Broadway West, when Sunderland, who have been going well this season, are the visitors. Another win - I hope so, but we'll have to turn up in force!!
