Your News Redruth 38 - Blaydon 12

A Blaydon side deprived of 7 regulars lost their 100% record at Redruth, suffering badly in the second period when they did themselves no favours by having two players yellow-carded.

For 40 minutes however they held the strong Cornish side and scored the opening try to hold the lead in the opening quarter. Man of the match Mark Scrivener, the Redruth fly-half, had put over a 5th minute penalty but Blaydon hit back immediatley with some excellant pressure by the forwards leading to Ben Mercer twisting over the line and Andrew Baggett adding the points.

Scrivener then struck two more penalties and put over the conversion of a Rob Thirlby try to give his side a 16-7 lead at the interval, and was on target again soon after the restart.

Chris Clark the Blaydon scrum-half was then sin-binned, followed soon after by prop forward Darren Fearns, and the floodgates opened.

Redruth contolled the play for long periods with some good re-cycling and were rewarded with three more tries from Dominic Cook, Thirlby with a second and finally and ironically Nat Pedley, the player who had been involved in the controversial incident with Cameron Johnson at Crow Trees last season.

Scrivener took his personal tally to 18 points with two more conversions but it was Blaydon that had the last word with a consolation try from a swift handling movement from which No8 Jason Smithson popped up in the corner to finish off.
