Injuries to opposition see game end early

BLYTH RFC Under-17s took to their first home game of the season with some style.

They dominated from the kick-off with some fine attacking moves while excellent defence work kept Novos pinned mostly in their half of the pitch.

In fairness, Novos struggled to get into the game and as the match wore on they kept picking up injuries.

Not to take things away from Blyth they controlled the game.

There were two tries each for Jake Towers, Sean Dowling and Devon Rees with Matty Hall and Kraig Moore bagging one each.

Man of the match Cori McCardle converted seven of the eight tries.

The match was brought to an end after about 15 minutes of the second half due to the amount of injuries to Novo’s players, although they never let their heads drop and competed to the end, making for an entertaining game.

A big thank you went to Blyth’s injured Josh Ramsey for helping out with the Novo’s injuries.

Blyth’s next game is away to Blaydon on Sunday.
