Ravens burnt by the dragons

N.E.W Ravens rugby league club have found their bogey team in Coventry Dragons having never beat them and this afternoon proved to be no different.

N.E.W Ravens rugby league club have found their bogey team in Coventry Dragons having never beat them and this afternoon proved to be no different. The Ravens were starved of possession for much of the game as they struggled to complete sets of sixes as the inexplicably lost possession on first or 2nd tackle too many times during the game.

On a hot sunny afternoon it was decided by both teams to play the match in 4 20 minute quarters rather than the usual 2 40 minute halves.

From the opening kick off, this match looked like it was going to be a close contest as both defences held up well, neither allowing the other side to get a foothold into the game in that it took 15 minutes for the visitors to finally find a chink in the Ravens defence to score the 1st try of the match which was not converted. The Ravens looked like they were going to have a quick as a short kick off from Sean Sudworth was collected by himself as the ball just went the required 10 metres and Ravens were on the attack but took the wrong option whilst pressing on the Dragons line and a short pass to Rhamel Blake on the wing with very little space and was bundled into touch in the corner.

Within 2 minutes of the second quarter, the Dragons found themselves a man down with the dismissal for head butting a Ravens player. This seemed to spur the Dragons on as they went onto 2 tries and 1 conversion before the half time whistle to give them a 14 to nil lead.

The 2nd half was much more of the same as the Dragons playing down the slope were punching holes in the Ravens defence to score 5 tries and 2 goals.

There were some bright spots for the Ravens as they never gave up trying and were rewarded on the 70th minute as they swung the ball right across the line and Sean Flynn took the overlap well to score a try, with the conversion narrowly missing as the wind dropped at point of the kick by David Wimbury.
