Your News Cinderford 35 - Blaydon 30

Despite a battling first half performance that gave them a healthy 30-19 lead, Blaydon went down to a ninth defeat from their last ten games. Two precious bonus were earned however that could yet prove vital in what has now become a three-way battle with Wharfedale and Westcombe Park to avoid the 4th relegation spot from League Two.

With eight regular squad members missing they were soon in arrears to a Jake Carter try, converted by Dan Trigg, but quickly pulled it round and went on to dominate the opening forty minutes.

They ran it wide for Brendan Daniel to crash over in the corner, Ross Batty linked up with the backs to finish off a flowing move, and then centre Paddy Dias shot through an inviting gap.

Cinderford responded with another score from winger Carter and then a Dave Knight effort when Blaydon missed tackle after tackle, but by the interval the visitors had secured an 11 points advantage. James Clark went over for the 4th and bonus point try right on the whistle with Rory Clegg landing the conversion to add to his earlier effort and a brace of penalties.

Disappointingly that was to be the end of the Blaydon scoring as for much of the second period they found themselves deprived of good ball.

They hung on for 20 minutes but the game swung when Cinderford brought on Freddie Burns as a replacement fly-half. His strategic kicking and all-round intelligent play immediately put the home side on the front foot and with an Adam Nicholls try and the conversion and 2 late penalties from Trigg the game gradually drifted away from Blaydon.
