Consett Report

05th February 2024

I couldn’t attend yesterdays match at Consett so I had to rely on the tea boy junior correspondent Bernie Coyne Viva El Presidente to send me the match details this is what he sent3-0 boro hilltry sawdon 8-0 consett try 8-5second half try hill 13-5tremlett try 18-5consett pen 18-8try Boro hill 23-8then nothing no final score until 20:07 oclock when i got and I quote “Sorry Jan should have said the last score was the final score” not sure who should be more insulted myself or Lady Coyne, answers on a post cardSo with that scant info I made this upRegional 2 North is a funny old league where any team can beat another on their day at home, so a bonus point win on the road is to be savouredBoro started the game well and opened the scoring with a penalty from Brendan Hill 0-3The away side kept the pressure on and later in the half Hooker Joe Sawdon touched down after an impressive driving maul from the pack 0-8Consett got a foothold in the game with a try of their own just before the half HT 5-8This game is in the balance it could go either wayMiddlesbrough open the second half strongly and after a good forward drive the backs are set away with the ball, good hands from them puts Brendan Hill through a gap to score 5-13Still in ascendency the Boro pack is making ground allowing No8 Toby Tremlett to cross for another score 5-18The home team reduce the deficit with a penalty kick 8-18The Boro backs finish the days scoring with another try from Brendan Hill good strong running and line breaks get the balls into his hands and on this form there’s no stopping himFinal Score Consett 8 Middlesbrough 23This might differ from the Consett report and dare I say the truth but that is how I saw the game from the Liquor Vaults, formerly Last Orders, previously De Neros
