Ashington rugby hit for half century
Sunderland 50Ashington RFC 7A poor first half performance against promotion hunting Sunderland saw Ashington losing 38-7 at half time and despite a better second half they were never able to recover.
The loss of influential hooker Greg Henderson after eight minutes to injury disrupted Ashington’s scrum and aimless kicking away of possession and missed tackles saw them concede five first half tries. Fly half Gleeson crossed for a try near the posts after a charge down and Arkle added the conversion
An improved second half performance saw Ash concede two further converted tries.
Ash have a chance to redeem themselves this coming Saturday with a home fixture against Seaton Carew.
