Beverley Under 16 Rotherham Home - Won 44-15

Match Report

Beverley RUFC Under-16's secured an emphatic 44-15 win at home against Rotherham taking revenge for a heavy defeat earlier in the season.

Rotherham's intent was clear from the kick off as swift passing through the backs allowed their fast winger to score in the first minute of the game. However, from that point on Beverley dominated most aspects of play with their improved fitness proving a significant benefit allowing fast free flowing rugby to be played.

Beverley played with confidence throughout, moving the ball and attacking at ever opportunity in near perfect conditions. The support play through out the game was excellent and they scored tries from most positions of the pitch, including some of the best seen at Beaver Park this season.

Koppy Phouangsavath opened Beverley’s account when his strong run from deep evaded the whole of Rotherham's back line, before Jacob Baggs scored a sensational team try with offloads and sweet passing movements involving the majority of the team allowing him to score under the posts. Tom Barnard converted.

A further try came when the outstanding Charlie Newsome used his pace and power to go over the white wash and although Rotherham did rally to score a brace of tries, Koppy finished the half with his second of the game and leave it 22-15 to the home side..

Beverley would not ease up and continued to dominate throughout and further tries came from Aaron Waring, Adam Skeates, Jack Webster and Jasper Ghio with a further conversion by Barnard leaving the final score 44-15 to Beverley.

This was a great team performance as the forwards laid the ground rules with strong, powerful runs and ball retention and the backs were expansive in their ambition and play.

Men of the match goes to Charlie Newsome and Ben Wilkinson who both managed to cover the entire pitch tackling, running with the ball and turning over possession to frustrate the visiting team.
