Boxing Day – First round to Blaydon XV 27-5, all to play for on 30th Dec. at Ryton 1pm KO

A large festive crowd gathered on a bright winters day to see two large squads from both sides turn out for this contest.

Blaydon squad was a mix from the club with:

  • Some of the Blaydon youth, who have come through in previous years and are now in the first team squad, were very keen to turn out for a social game; Andy, Dan, James, Owen & Sean
  • Georgians/Development squad; Jack, Jake, James Murray, Lewis and Callum
  • Bricks represented by Goggle, Justin, Dingley 2, Cameron, GB, Stracks, Texas (he’s still a Brick, on loan at Winlaton) and Tom
  • Couple of guests; Shane from USA in for Christmas and Dave Walton from Winlaton who just turned up on spec. to see if he could get a game, it’s Boxing day all welcome!.

 

Thanks to Windy and Sean for the pictures, sample below, rest available:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/26086313@N08/sets/72157691558798415/

 

Headlines:

  • Blaydon defence was immense with Ryton having more of the ball, but unable to breach our lines until a break from the young 9 close to the end.
  • Andy and Owen swapped at half time, both provided quick ball from 9 and made good yards while at 15
  • Front row enjoyed the skirmish against a good Ryton pack, especially Tom who was lining up scrumhalf, see the photos on Facebook and on Bricks site.
  • James Cooney scored 3 long range try’s while he was on the field in the first half.
  • Blaydon backs always looked dangerous with ball in hand and had pace to burn.
  • Jack, Jake, Callum, Shane, Sean and Justin got round the park and made life difficult for Ryton to gain any momentum
  • Strachs made some good yards going forward and some big hits in defence
  • Texas tackling, yes honest it happened..
  • Ryton had a very good, young 9 and 10 on display.
  • Keith wasn’t available, so Paul took his yellow card for him!. He doth protest his innocence too much I think, even tried afterwards in the bar, with the totally unbiased independent referees….
  • Changes at half time brought Dan, Jake, James Murray and David Walton on, so even more pace introduced
  • Forwards will know they were in a contest after this game with some big hits and impacts
  • Texas’s kick across field into Sean’s arms, as he lurked on the side line and ran in, no clue what a hooker was doing out there! But good try.

 

In summary really entertaining game, but job only half done, with second round on Saturday 30th 1pm at Ryton, with winner being over both games, Blaydon have the advantage, but first team squad being rested for return of the league campaign, so more 2nds/3rds and Bricks being called up.

Blaydon RFC fixtures and selection for Saturday April 16th

Firsts away at Henley Hawks KO 3:00

After the delight of securing our national one future we now have our sights set on finishing the season on a high. The squad hoping to do that has a few changes from last week, in the front row young hooker Jack Beckwith starts along with Andrew Archibald who is in for Keith Laughlin. In the backs Tom Rock misses out with a hamstring strain so school boy Ben Stevenson starts at outside center. We have two new editions on the bench, England 20’s captain Callum Chick is one the second is fly half Jack Emerson.

1st Team at Home to Cinderford KO 2:30

Our squad to face Cinderford this week is pretty similar to the one that traveled to Rosslyn Park last week. The only change in the backs is at scrum half where Nathan Horsefal comes in for Ruaridh Dawson. The forwards pack however has a few more tweaks, Robbie Kalbraier comes in at loose head with Sam White moving to the bench, Andrew Archibald makes way for Gavin Jones in the back row and on the bench Andrew Foster, Jack Davison and Ben Stevenson all return to give us some good balance through out.

Bricks – rest weekend

Blaydon fixtures and selection for Saturday April 2nd

Firsts away to Rosslyn Park KO 3pm

After a week off we are feeling refreshed and ready to travel to London. This week’s squad has a number of changes from the Esher trip. In the forwards England Counties prop Trevor Davison returns at tight head with Will Witty slotting back in behind him after his three week ban, in the back row we have juggled things around with Andrew Archibald sliding back to open side and Gavin Jones moving to the bench. Behind the scrum we welcome back Ruaridh Dawson and Brett Connon both have away on U20’s duty, the last change sees Andrew Baggett returns at 12 after a slight knock two weeks ago. On the bench Mathew Jenkinson features for the first time in a number of months and I’m sure he’ll make a massive impact on the Rosslyn Park surface.
