The best way to keep up to date with Barnes Rugby Football Club

A hard-fought win
Barnes only needed 1 point and got it, Westcliff wanted more.
At times Barnes had little answer to Bury's forwards' expertise with pick-and-go and Bury struggled to deal with to Barnes' rolling maul.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent - LW
Normal Service Continued
For "Whatever" see Gravesend reporter's headline for the reverse fixture
- coming from 11 points behind in the 4th quarter. Barnes' set piece control and all-round defence was perhaps the key
- forcing errors from the visitors who denied them a bonus point.
2nd 1/2 indiscipline from EG was matched by their commitment in defence
- made so by the difficult playing conditions (deserving of a shorter report this time)
- whose "own goal" meant that they played almost 3/4 of the match with 14 men
- they looked capable of as Guernsey claimed a deserved bonus point.
Civil Service fought to the end and were particulary good with their rolling mauls that got them 3 tries
Decided in the 1st 1/2 by Barnes' three-quarters on top form
Barnes generally defended well; Bury got 2 tries from an interception and a fluke
Their USP is fit young muscle and their general ability in defence was very effective. Barnes had at least 2 good chances to get 4 tries.
Barnes had their chances, a couple were squandered then an interception ensured the result.
controlling a game, for the most part, against a Gravesend team that has had a couple of very good results this season.
but their attack was limited to Newton’s boot. A point a minute from Barnes in the final quarter sealed their bonus point win.
(get away, that is). This game, won by one penalty could have gone either way, each side scoring 4 tries, with only one converted.
Barnes not capitalising on 2 YCs towards the end of the 1st 1/2 then conceding many penalties in the 2nd.
The build-up and scoring of Park’s 6 tries took somewhat less than a quarter of this game.
before 2 tries early in the 2nd put them behind. Barnes responded but Tonbridge regained the lead in the final quarter and finished the stronger
Good Result on big away trip
... after CS 1863 beat Barnes twice last season.
2 tries for each team; LI win by 2 penalties and 2 conversions.
Barnes score early then in the last 68 minutes the points scored were 26 all.
Battering Rams withstood in an exciting contest that could have gone the other way.
