SCARBOROUGH LOOK TO MAKE IN FOUR LEAGUE WINS IN A ROW AT SILVER ROYD

28 Oct

DEVIN IBANEZ, GRAHAM HOGG (2) AND TOM HARRISON WERE IN THE TRIES LAST WEEK

Matty Jones’s men bounced back from their surprise Yorkshire Shield exit to score four tries in a 27-0 win at Bradford Salem last week. Flanker Devin Ibanez opened the Seasiders account with a try in the second quarter before a touchdown from inside-centre Graham Hogg converted by fly half Tom Harrison stretched the lead to 12-0 at the break. Hogg kicked the visitors 15-0 ahead with a penalty before adding his second try converted by Harrison for 22-0. And Harrison completed the scoring with a late try to earn a well deserved bonus point.

Beverley are next up at Silver Royd tomorrow kick-off at 3pm; the east Yorkshiremen have been in freefall for a couple of seasons now suffering consecutive relegations from National League Three and then North One. However they have steadied the ship this season and sit third in Yorkshire One which I’m sure is a mighty relief to everyone at their Beaver Park HQ. Last week they scored three first half tries to lead 19-6 at the break against struggling Heath.; however, the west Yorshiremen came back strongly scoring a couple of second half tries and although Beverley failed to add to their total they went on to win 19-13.

 

 JUNIOR TUPEI  IN ACTION FOR SCARBOROUGH (L) AND BEVERLEY (R)

Scarborough and Beverley last met in a competitive match back in 2002 when the home side scraped a narrow 3-0 win at Newby; so tomorrow will be Beverley’s first league visit to Silver Royd. To add further spice to the proceedings our first Youth Development Officer Junior Tupai, now Director of Rugby at Beaver Park, who scored a try last week, will play for the visitors;  in fact if I remember correctly Junior and Matty Jones joined Scarborough at the same time early in the century. With four league places but only two points separating the teams this is a vital game for both teams. For Scarborough, Coach Lee Douglas has added Drew Govier, Bob Murphy and Billy Parker to his squad for the game. Beverley are unable to raise a second team for their game with the Vikings at Beaver Park and therefore the Vikings and the Danesmen will take on opposition from Driffield here at Silver Royd tomorrow.

ACTION FROM VALKRYIES V HARROGATE AT SILVER ROYD

Following their 18-14 win in a close-fought game with Harrogate a couple of weeks ago, the Valkryies are back in action on Sunday at home to visitors Morpeth Ladies. Kick-off is at 2pm.
