Tynedale 45 v Wharfedale 30 (Half Time: 14-13)

After the previous week's disappointing display Tyne returned to something resembling their best in an entertaining feast of tries played out in rare sunshine!! The visitors, Wharfedale, returned to Tynedale Park after a gap of 14 seasons, and played their part before Tyne emerged as worthy victors.

Tyne spurned several chances before taking the lead after 14 minutes through debutant Danny Williams who finished clinically after a flowing threequarter move. Rob Miller, who was to have a 100% success rate with his kicks converted.

Seven minutes later right winger Fraser Shaw scored the second try after Gavin Beasley and Miller had linked.

Any thoughts the home spectators had of a first half runaway were dispelled in a 10 minute period before the interval during which Wharfedale scored two unconverted triea and a penalty to cut Tyne's lead to a single point at the break.

The second half continued with both sides looking to move the ball at every opportunity but it was Tynedale who sealed the match in a scintillating 11 minute period - scoring four excellent tries through Jack Harrison, Miller, Shaw and Ross Samson. Miller then stroked over a penalty after 66 minutes to give Tyne a convincing 45-13 lead.

To their credit Wharfedale kept playing and were rewarded with two tries of their own and a penalty in the last 10 minutes.
