Ripon 24 - 7 Northallerton

Ripon deserved the win today.  Defence was excellent and their back very dangerous. Northallerton didn't look like scoring and got their points from a Penalty Try from a series of scrums 15m out from Ripons Try line.

Old Rish 33 v Barnsley 16

The result certainly did not reflect the dominance of Rish in this game who should have passed the 50+ mark in a game where they had 2 tries were disallowed for dubious forward passes and for some good last ditch tackles when Rish were in the ascendancy. It looked as though it was going to be a tough day at the office for Rish when Barnsley came out of the blocks firing scoring early points. However, once the Rish players had settled in to the game, the forwards had dominance at both lineout and scrum, which allowed the Rish backline to exploit gaps on the edge and rack up 26 points as the first half came to a close.

The second half then became a very scrappy affair with Barnsley unable to get out of their own half and after their disgraceful No.10 decided to drop kick one of the Rish back row forwards when he was down, the temperament of the game changed with Barnsley lucky to only receive 1 yellow card throughout that half.

Rish will come away from the game frustrated that they could not have capitalised more on their chances but having walked away with all the points available and sending Barnsley on their way empty handed it was simply job done. The two Barnsley players that can come away with their heads held high was their powerful front-row captain and their tireless No.8 who swept up most things defensively and was fantastic throughout...although whether he wants to be scrapping it out at the bottom of Y2 will be interesting to see.
