Your News Redruth 25 - Blaydon 14

Blaydon's decision to spend 7000 on hiring a private jet to get them to Cornwall and back in a day proved a massive success from an organisational point of view, but disappointingly failed to produce the right result on the field.

In what was a very even game Blaydon had more then enough chances to have grabbed control, particularly just after the break when with the score at 8-7 a Jason Smithson try was disallowed.

Redruth had earlier opened the scoring through Meredith their centre and then a Cozens penalty, but right on the interval Blaydon top try scorer Andy Fenby latched onto a charge down and skated through to score under the posts, Dan Kyle converting.

Although Blaydon were to dominate the opening 10 minutes of the second period, their best spell of the game, ultimately it was a failure to retain possession that proved their downfall.

Both Viddicombe and Cooper took full advantage when Blaydon spilled it in their own half, and fly-half Cozens was on target with both conversions and a penalty.

In the closing stages however it was again all Blaydon and after Adam Dehaty had chipped the defence to pull back a superb solo score, Kyle converting, a late break by Martin Shaw produced a 2 man overlap that should have earned the visitors at least a bonus point.

Redruth just about deserved their win but Blaydon's enterprise in flying from Newcastle to Newquay is surely the way ahead for these long distance encounters.
