Northern Report

12th September 2023

First away game of the season sees the lads travel up to old rivals Northern.In sweltering heat lads gave their all only to come up short against a very well drilled side.13 minutes in and our hosts are 12-0 up, then after 20 minutes our first away try comes after sustained pressure, Jack Mac sends a miss pass out to wing Rhys Kilbride who then pinballs off 3 defenders to score 12-5Skipper Pete Homan is then yellow carded for what no one from either set of supporters could see what the offence was.2 more tries for the hosts gives them a 24-5 lead at the break.The Boro pack are bossing the scrummage their ball our ball makes no difference, the push is on. I’ve never seen such a dominant side not get the rub of the green.Northern have a throw in to a lineout clearly not straight this is missed by the official and they score again 31-5.Aedan Moloney then scores for Boro, got some wheels that kid 31-10Our lads are giving their all but no decision is going their way we break and Brendan Hill scores out wide only to be disallowedNorthern finish the scoring with a try and their 6 gets a yellow card and probably sums up the day saying “These new rules are S***” as he left the fieldFinal score Northern FC 36 Boro 10Not our day but we will come back swinging as we always do, This side will get up and try again I have no doubt.Next week The Mighty Boro are at home against Cockermouth with a 3pm KO at Parc du Acklam
