Your News Cambridge 39 - Blaydon 28

Blaydon came away from high-flying Cambridge with a 4 try bonus point, their 5th from 7 games, but were kicking themselves that it could have been so much better.

Of the tries they conceded, 2 were from interceptions on the Cambridge line which should have been prevented and 2 more were run in when Blaydon were a man short.

Cambridge with the wind at their backs had the better of the early exchanges and built up a lead with a Craig Evans penalty and a close range try from Stefan Liebenberg. Centre Jim Knight stretched the advantage further with his length of the field effort, converted by Evans, but right on the interval Andrew Baggett finally got the Blaydon scoreboard moving with a penalty to make it 15-3.

A long distance drop goal from Baggett soon after the restart kept Blaydon in touch but a lapse in concentration saw Jim Shanaman race clear from 90 metres for the home side with Evans again on the mark. Worse was to follow, when with Dave Guthrie in the sin-bin Cambridge piled on the pressure scoring twice more through flanker Darren Fox and then Evans with a storming solo effort.

With time running out Blaydon at last began to swing the game and finished with a flurry of scoring. Winger Brendan Daniel crashed over wide out and was quickly followed by leading try scorer Andrew Fenby who put the finishing touch to a multi-handling movement, and finally in the last move of the game Daniel cleverly put the hobbling Martin Shaw over in the corner to clinch the bonus point
