Your News Coventry 27 - Blaydon 27

Blaydon came within seconds of landing a first away win of the season but in a game that had been nip and tuck from the start Coventry grabbed an equalising try with the final play.

Coventry centre Luke Myring, who had an outstanding game, landed an early penalty for his side but almost from the restart Blaydon flanker Jason Smithson charged down a clearance to score in the corner, Andrew Baggett converting. The scoring sequence was soon to be repeated with Myring again bisecting the posts only to see the Blaydon forwards back in charge and marching the home pack 25 metres in reverse for Chris Wearmouth to touch down.

Baggett improved the score and then added a penalty but at the break it was 13-17 with Coventry having opened their try account when Myring broke through a tackle and added the points himself.

The 3rd quarter saw Blaydon mainly on the defensive but never in danger of being breached and on 60 minutes they broke out to run in try No3 ,driving play by the forwards taking play deep into the Coventry 22 for Smithson to cross.

Home full-back Ben Russell crossed for a 2nd Coventry score, improved by Myring, to narrow the gap to 20-22 but both sides were finding themselves constantly at a disadvantage at this stage with yellow cards being dispensed thick and fast - 3 home and 3 away.

With time running out Blaydon ran back a long clearance and good work by Tom Nutel put centre Charles Inceldon over in the corner for a bonus point earning, and most likely match winning ,4th try.

Coventry however had played their part in an enthralling game and after another fightback deservedly drew level through replacement prop Adam Parkin plus Jim O'Connor's conversion - a fair result.
