Your News Gosforth 37 - Guisborough 10

CRAIC and TEAM NEWS; the team has a settled look with the 3 Amigos Joe Woodhams, Peter Hall and Chris Morris starting in the front row, ably supported by Graham Hall and Dan Tucker in the boiler room, the back row of Adam Bell, Aiden Marsh and Sam Stirling are becoming a regular and effective trio. Player coach Adam Falkner teamed up again with Adam Ainley again at halfback with a centre pairing of Andy Ushaw and John Gamble; Mark Anderson and Gordon Johnston winged it with Ben Debnam at fullback. Tom Jones returning from injury benched alongside Mike McCreery and Dan Farquhar, all of whom played a part in the bonus point victory over newly promoted Guisborough. Matt Steel was a spectator on the touchline, but was not involved in a Northumbria Police operation that was going on in the area prior to kick off, complete with police helicopter buzzing overhead.

THE MATCH; Mark Anderson kicked off and within 5 minutes had kicked a penalty to give Gosforth a 3-0 lead, the chilly breeze had got behind the ball and assisted his long range kick. The two Adams combined, a shrewd chip kick by scrumhalf and coach Adam Falkner being fielded by fly-half Adam Ainley who crossed for a try. Gosforths second try came courtesy of a classic lineout catch and drive, which resulted in flanker Sam Stirling touching down for a try. Winger Mark Anderson finished off an excellent passing move following a lineout win to cross in the corner for another Gosforth try. 18-0 down the visitors battled back and their scrumhalf Tom Rose found a gap in the Gosforth defence to score a try, which centre James Clark converted. Prop and skipper Joe Woodhams benefitted from another lineout catch and drive to score a fourth bonus point try. A late counterattack by Guisborough gave them an easy penalty kick opportunity which James Clark converted to narrow the points gap to 23-10.

Guisborough failed to add to their score, but Gosforth reinforced their superiority in the 15th minute , when, following a lineout catch by Adam Bell, the ball was passed to centre Andy Ushaw , who ran a good line and broke through the visitors defence to score making it 30-10. It was flanker Adam Bell who scored Gosforths sixth and final try, when he took a pass close to the Guisborough line and drove over in fine style and grounded the ball, Mark Andersons conversion made it 37-10. Adam Ainley was unlucky to have a try scoring attempt disallowed, when he and winger Gordon Johnston linked up in the closing minutes of the half and the flyhalf jinked through the Guisborough defence.

THIS SATURDAY its a cross Tyne trip to Ryton, who lost 31-14 at Horden, and who always give us a tight, hard game at their Barmoor ground
