Your News Blaydon 83 - Waterloo 33

Blaydon ran in 13 tries, including a brace from departing skipper Dave Guthrie, against bottom of the table Waterloo to guarantee their place in League Two for another season.

Fittingly it was Guthrie who popped up on the wing to score the final effort in what was his last game at Crow Trees after 15 years as 1st XV captain, whilst Director of Rugby Nick Gandy who is also leaving at the end of the season, came on as a late replacement and got his name on the score sheet with a conversion.

It was one way traffic from the start with prop Robbie Kalbraier securing the opener from close range after 5 minutes. Left wing Andrew Fenby was back to his mercurial best, setting up scores with his running from all parts of the field, and made it 18 for the season with his own two efforts.

Ross Batty, playing out of position at flank forward, also weighed in with a double, other tries coming from Chris Clark and Andrew Baggett. In the dying seconds of the half however the visitors finally broke through with a Neil Kerfoot try and Liam Reeve conversion, but the Blaydon onslaught continued within a minute of the resumption.

Baggett again and Brendan Daniel took it to 66-7 and with the game well and truly over both sides began running it in 'sevens' style. Matt Williams ran in a hat-trick for Waterloo, front row Martin O'Keefe stormed over from close range, and 3 more conversions from Reeve took them to a respectable 33 points.

At the other end however Simon Barber and Chris Wearmouth raced in for Blaydon, fly half Rory Clegg got his 8th conversion and there was still time for the skipper to grab the glory near the end.
