An 80 points score-fest

Somewhere over the rainbow!

As we hosted old friends, Ryton, in the last of the first half of the Season, the weak December sun shone on the righteous. Unfortunately the bright conditions were not to persist throughout the game, which finished in very murky conditions! We had ex Ryton/Winlaton player, Alex Wharmby, making his debut in his first game for three seasons.
Having kicked off the visitors were to keep possession of the ball for the first ten minutes of the game, but came away pointless having come close to scoring (including a missed penalty on 5 minutes). With their first incursion into the Ryton half Gosforth were to score the first try through centre, Adam McGarry, after a good passage of handling play. The conversion was missed in the swirling conditions by Mark Anderson on 13 minutes (5-0). Almost immediately Ryton were to level the score following a charged down clearance kick by centre, Richard Brooks. This score stayed until the 20th minute, when Gos scored another try by Andy Black from amongst the forwards to take the score to 10-5. This was followed by two more tries from Matty Marshall and Andrew Camplejohn in the next eight minutes - both converted by Mark Anderson for a 24-5 scoreline. Ryton were the next to score through an Andy Oxley penalty on 37 minutes, but there was still time for a typically powerful, bullocking run by home No 8, Adam Barrass, to score under the posts for Ando to convert, leaving the half-time score at 31-8 to Gosforth.
With the strong breeze at their backs Ryton were to retort powerfully with two tries of their own through Owen Reay and Daniel Lax - both converted by Oxley to narrow the score to 31-22 on 56 minutes. During this time winger, Tom Jones had had an enforced ten minute rest and replacement prop, the easily recognised BJ Neill, had a cameo 45 second appearance! [ Some wag in the crowd cruelly suggested that his seconds on the field were outnumbered by his alleged age!!]. Some anxious moments for the home supporters were allayed during the next fifteen minutes, when in the gathering gloom four home tries were scored through Adam Barrass; Adam McGarry; Marc Burton and Andrew Camplejohn - the last one converted into the wind by Anderson to leave the score at 53-22 with six minutes to go. [ The same wag suggested that the handling improved with the darkness!!] Ryton were to be the last to score through winger, Simon Smith, to gain a deserved four-try bonus point, leaving the final score at 53-27 - a truly entertaining 80 point try-fest!
Next week sees GRFC down at Hartlepool in the first of the return fixtures - having won narrowly 26-23 earlier at Broadway West. KO again is the ridiculously late 2.15pm!
