Waterloo 8 Blaydon 46

Blaydon's second season in National League Two got off to a cracking start when they ran in 6 tries to thrash Waterloo, controlling the game almost from start to finish. Some excellent off-loading kept them in possession for long periods, and wingers Andrew Fenby and Brendan Daniel were a constant threat.

It was Fenby in the 4th minute who got the scoreboard moving when he 'waltzed in' down the left, beating three would-be tacklers in the process. Six minutes later it was 0-14 after scrum-half Gavin Charlton had shot through a gap following good work by the forwards.

No.8 Jason Smithson broke from a scrum on half-way to set up try No 3 for Daniel, whose effort matched the earlier Fenby score, and then Fenby grabbed his second in time added-on after Patrick Dias had chipped ahead.

Waterloo had their one spell of pressure after the restart and deservedly scored when hooker Peter Ince went over from close range, but John lowden, who had landed a first half penalty, was off target with the conversion attempt and that was to be the end of their scoring.

Blaydon however regained the initiative and went from strength to strength, adding two more tries. Ed Mercer crossed in the corner to finish off a flowing move, and then almost inevitably it was Fenby who applied the coup de grace.

The winger set off on a mazy run beating man after man and when he was finally brought down just inches short, popped it up for Dias to to touch it down.

Andrew Baggett failed to convert, but in his debut game had been successful with all previous attempts, 5 conversions and 2 penalties.
