Your News Blaydon 22 - Blackheath 6

Continuing on from where they left off last week Blaydon set a cracking pace, confidently throwing it around and finding gaps at will. Three tries and nineteen points to the good after 25 minutes it was non-stop one way traffic, but just when a whitewash seemed on the cards they went off the boil and achieved little else for the remainder of the game.

Centre Andrew Baggett cut through in mid-field to provide the impetus for the opener, the move continued by Elliott O'Brien and then Adam McKenzie who found Scott Riddell in support on his shoulder. The flanker shrugged off a challenge and a determined run saw him cross the line near the posts.

Scarcely had the dust settled when O'Brien was released again, this time by Tom Rock, and quickly handed on to full-back Adam Dehaty who stepped inside and held off Tyson Lewis the Blackheath winger to score an excellent try.

Baggett converted that effort and was on the mark again after Riddell had run in an almost identical score to his first from a Paddy Dias pass.

Having achieved absolutely nothing for 30 minutes, Blackheath, to everyone's astonishment, suddenly began to get back into it and by the interval had cut the deficit to 19-3 with a penalty from their full-back Tom White.

White struck again early in the second period and the game might have swung had Lewis been adjudged to have won the chase after hacking on over the Blaydon line.

It was not to be, Baggett landed another penalty in a rare Blaydon attack, and although Blackheath maintained a territorial advantage and battled away with a succession of rolling mauls it all fizzled out in the deteriorating conditions.
