Roundhegians 18 v Yarnbury 53 - Yorkshire 2 League


In a topsy turvey season Yarnbury started poorly due to unavailabilities then proceeded to win the last four matches with bonus points in all but one win and then from November 20th without games culminating in 12 minutes last week and an abandonment due to referee injury!

The question were Coach Bob Hoods team capable of maintaining their pre Christmas form and the answer was a respounding yes.From the forwards through the general Carl Patterson at Stand Off Yarnbury ruthlessly took apart the game Roundhegians fifteen with an assured patience and relentless pressure scoring nine tries four being converted.Roundhegians responded with a penalty try in ther first and a consolation in the closing minutes in the second.

Yarnbury started cautiously and conceded two missed penalties by Roundhegians centre James Dobson before the impressive Yarnbury scrum half Oliver Cashman broke blindside from a Yarnbury scrum to score out wide whilst taking over three defenders on the line.Stand Off Carl Patterson was finding both touches by this stage and pinning Roundhay side back in their own defensive areas and another try quickly followed with left winger Chris Flowers,back after a long injury scamppering over following quick passing through the backs.Jason Avieson then took another flat quick pass from Patterson to go over wide right and by this time the Roundhegians were clearly shocked by the pace and power of the Yarnbury backs.

Stand Off Carl Patterson was frustrated by a charge down kick deep into the first half which lead to a penalty try when he was forced to impeed hegians Jonny Flowers as he scored in the corner but upgraded to a penalty try for the infringement and converted by James Dobson under the posts.Yarnbury came back immediately with a determined jinking run from the stand off who made it to the try line for what looked a memorable score only to be ruled out for a foot on the line.Nevertheless further tries followed for Yarnbury before half time when Jason Avieson punched a hole in the hegians back line with his direct running and the try of the day saw marvellous interpassing between Richard Longstaff,Ian Maycock and skipper Alex Bowden to outstrip the hegians defence for Adam malthouse to break out and go over for Yarnbury's fifth.

With the bonus point assured again Yarnbury needed to keep focused with the Roundhegians pack persistent in their chasing of the game but four further tries came from scrum half Oliver Cashman with a conrolled pushover scored by No8 James Barrett and full back Graham Maycock trotting over to complete the tries.Carl Patterson vonverting only four of the nine and will need to be on target next Saturday against his old club Hullensians.

This was five wins out of the last five games and 29 out of 30 points and is impressive stuff from the Horsforth side who are now looking to progress into the top three places but promotion whilst still possible will require some good fortune!
