The best way to keep up to date with Barnes Rugby Football Club
2 years ago
- yet by halftime Barnes led by 5 points – after that they struggled to get out of their half.
2nd 1/2: 12 – 7 to Barnes, who scored 4 tries in all. Only 4 teams have scored 4 tries against Albanians this season.
- with lots of attacking and getting points on the board.
A training exercise in defending and tackling.
The visitors found it hard to defend Stortford’s ability with short range passing to put a player through a gap.
On a firm pitch for a change, both teams wanted to play rugby and this produced 11 tries
Barnes had an 18 point lead at the end of the first quarter but the rest of the contest was 32 points to 5.
6 tries, no penalties with the opposition failing to score
Hoping for some firm dry pitches soon
In this game Barnes failed to click as an attacking team but did defend well against a new Redingensians' team (see note at end of this report).
Injury-hit Dorking struggled to threaten but defended well.
3rd game in a row decided by a last minute kick
Clifton miss out on draw with last kick of the match
previously Barnes were getting penalised for almost every attempt to go forward
Gibbo great at the breakdown
- despite the scoreline - against a very good team
Redruth excelled at having a player at the shoulder of a ball carrier and putting the former through a gap between defenders.
With 12 minutes to go the scores were level.
Bury’s big pack on a muddy pitch ensured their win.
kept Barnes out of their 22 and scored 3 tries
Excellent retention and very good defence kept the visitors in the lead until near the end.
Launceston scored 6 points with the boot while the visitors' fullback kicked 13. The home team scored 5 tries to the opposition's 4.
3 forward tries the difference between the sides, 6 in all resulting in 5 important points.
Old E's will be kicking themselves
1 point short of a bonus point, losing by 1 unconverted try and 1 penalty (the 2nd half was 14-all)
- but the unpredictable bounces of a well-directed cross-field kick and an up-and-under helped Worthing get 2 of their 5 tries
against a powerful Taunton team.
The game hinged on two pivotal moments, one just before half time, the other with 20 minutes to go.
Possibly better than at Wimbledon but not enough
