Your News Redruth 30 - Blaydon 12

Blaydon more then held their own in what was a tighter game than the scoreline might suggest, the better use of their possession by Redruth being the only real difference between the sides.

The home team led 6-0 in the first half, courtesy of 2 penalties from fly half Mark Scrivener, but Blaydon had the better opportunities including a 'try' by centre Adam Dehaty that was disallowed for a forward pass.

Unfortunately for Blaydon they lost a player to the sin-bin just before the break, and in the 3 minutes of his absence following the restart, conceded a vital try. A high ball was mishandled in the windy conditions and Redruth winger Lewis Viddicombe took full advantage, with Scrivener adding the points to make it 13-0.

Blaydon however hit straight back to open their account when they kicked a penalty to the corner and prop forward Robbie Kalbraier touched down from the line-out. Redruth then brought on replacement scrum half Mark Richards who promptly swung the match in their favour with his distribution and leadership.

Viddicombe went in for his second try, followed by Chris Morriss the other winger, skipper and front rower Darren Jacks burrowed his way over for a fourth try and Scrivener added another conversion.

The score at that stage was an unrealistic 30-5 to the home side but Blaydon finished as they had started and completely dominated the closing stages. Possession was run from all parts and in a dazzling move that went through 10 phases, the try of the game went to centre James Fitzpatrick who finished it off by bursting through a tackle near the line, and fly-half Richard Windle landed the conversion.
