News from the Blues 30th Oct

Picking up their first away win at Tynedale on Saturday could prove to be a very important result for the Blues.

The win takes us out of the bottom spot in the league and up to 14th place, ahead of Cambridge and Loughborough Students.

This was much-needed after a very challenging month, as Blues fought hard but couldn’t quite get the results against the Students, Coventry and Rosslyn Park.

As Head Coach and Director of Rugby Geoff Wappett stressed after the match on Saturday; a lot of rugby is to do with confidence, as it is with any sport.

A bad run of results will affect anyone’s confidence on the field, so it was important to end that run and go into the Richmond match at home in this improved position.

Richmond will be a difficult fixture for the Blues as they hold onto the 10th position at the moment in the league.

Although seeing as they enjoyed a surprise win against Blaydon earlier this season, and managed to hold Ealing to a 27-27 draw, it will be very difficult to predict the score-line this Saturday.

Richmond suffered a 37-17 defeat against Rosslyn Park on the 27th October, while Ealing also celebrated a 41-17 victory against Wharfedale.

Old Albanian and Blaydon both picked up wins, against Sedgley Park and Loughborough Students respectively.

Fylde picked up a narrow 22-20 win against Coventry, as Esher beat Cinderford 19-12.

In the last match of the day Blackheath beat Cambridge 35-18, meaning the Blues now sit above them in the league.

Elsewhere in the club the Lions beat Altrincham Kersal 33-12, Coach Paul Bartle was pleased with the win: “The lions scored a deserved win at Altrincham Kersal.

“Short periods of excellence were unfortunately interspersed with inconsistency and mistakes.

“Haigh and King both ran hard, while Horton impressed as a flanker on his debut.

“A decent win but there’s a lot of work to do before the Fylde and Sedgley games!”

The 3’s also enjoyed a 45-30 win against Wirral, while the 4’s missed out in a 15-36 loss against Winnington Park.
