Redruth 15 v Tynedale 5 (Half Time: 10-0)

Tynedale made the long trek to league leaders Redruth but were disappointed to come away empty handed against league leaders Redruth, a last gasp try to the home side costing Tyne a deserved bonus point.

Redruth, playing with the elements, generally had the the upperhand in the first half and only some strong aggressive tackling and a well organised Tyne defence kept the home side out. With only 5 minutes of the half remaining Gavin Beasley was yellow carded and Redruth kicked the resultant penalty to edge ahead.

Almost straight from the restart Redruth took full advantage of their numerical advantage and some strong, slick play resulted in a try wide out which was converted to give the home side a 10-0 half time advantage.

Tyne started the second period strongly and were rewarded after only 2 minutes when Jamie Murray scored after some neat approach work to make the score 5-10.

Tyne dominated possession and territory for the majority of the second period but were unable to break through a resolute home defence and their cause was not helped by several uncharacteristic handling errors at key times.

Nevertheless the Redruth defence must be complimented on their exceptional discipline in not giving away any penalties despite playing long periods on the back foot in their own 22.

As the match entered it's final minutes it seemed the Tyne spirit was at last broken and yet again Tyne suffered from a yellow card - this time Eni Gesinde being carded. Again Redruth made their numerical advantage count and with the last play of the match they forced their way over for the score which denied Tyne the bonus point which their efforts had well deserved.

Undoubtedly Tyne suffered yet again from having players yellow carded - this is a serious problem which obviously the players and coaches are trying very hard to address. It is hoped however that Tynedale's very poor record in this area to date is not resulting in referees going into matches with pre-conceived ideas.
