Your News Blaydon 42 - Redruth 10

Blaydon returned from an enforced five week lay-off in tremendous style, completely outplaying their Cornish visitors and running in six tries in the process.

After Adam Armstrong had opened the scoring with a penalty, wing forward Scott Riddell collected a clearance in great style to run it straight back for James Fitzpatrick to send in winger Simon Barber for a superb score.

Armstrong was on target with the conversion and then another penalty before try number two arrived on the half hour. Tom Rock made the initial break and after four more pairs of hands had taken it on flanker Kerry Wood stormed over to make it 18-0.

Having dominated the half the excellent Blaydon defence was breached in the second minute of time added on when they failed to cope with a bullocking run from Redruth second row Luke Collins, and prolific try scorer Lewis Vinnicombe finished it off.

The second period however saw Blaydon go from strength to strength, Fitzpatrick on the rampage to put Armstrong over in the corner, the same player also converting, and then Wood grabbing his second from a multi-handling movement to clinch the bonus point.

In a rare attack Redruth replacement Richard Carroll was driven over from a rolling maul but Blaydon going forward were unstoppable.

Andrew Baggett added try number five and then in the final minute after a storming run from defence by full-back Adam Dehaty some more good handling let in No8 Gavin Jones with Armstrong landing the conversion, his third of what had been a memorable performance from the home side.
