Your News Blaydon 41 - Sedgley Park 8

It took Blaydon quite some time to find their feet, during which which they had to defend for their lives, but once they got going it was one-way traffic at the other end with Jim Fitzpatrick leading the charge.

The centre put out the final pass for Adam Dehaty to score the opener on 18 minutes after Tom Rock, Adam Armstrong and Scott Riddell had finally got them on the front foot. Armstrong neatly put over the conversion and was in business again 2 minutes later.

This time a crunching Fitzpatrick tackle led to the ball going loose, a Blaydon boot hacked on and Armstrong easily won the race, also adding the extra points to his effort.

A 13 minute purple patch ended with a third try following phase after phase of excellent possession, Rock and Gavin Jones combining to send in Scott Riddell near the posts.

Sedgley meanwhile had opened their account with a Stephen Nutt penalty, and from a fine spell of dangerous running in the last 10 minutes of the half scored through Bill Runciman courtesy of a jinking run from their fly-half Richard Wainwright.

The visitors began the second period as they had the first but the effort soon fizzled out in the face of another 3 try blitz from Blaydon with Fitzpatrick involved in everything, punching holes in the defence at will and generally causing havoc.

Prop Robbie Kalbraier was driven over from a line-out after Fitzpatrick had been hauled down inches short and then flanker Mark Wilson broke off from a short scrum to dive over.

Winger Armstrong, who was only on the field because of Simon Barber taking ill during the warm-up, finished things off in style with a try under the posts to make it a personal tally of 21 points from his 2 scores, 4 conversions and a penalty.
