Take a bow fellas that was one of the best performances I have seen from a Boro 1st team in the modern era. At points in that game I thought that I was going to burst with pride. 40 yard driving mauls, tackle after tackle, dogged defence, attacking prowess, Wow just Wow.

So we travelled over to Penrith to see our old friends and rivals.
The game kicks off at Boro are on the attack gaining ground after a penalty and lineout the ball works its way to the try line and after a series of rucks Pete Homan crosses the line for our opener, Andrew Baggett converts 0-7.

Boro were pressing again after the kick off but they spill the ball and the home side attack, but they lose the ball and Aedan Moloney picks up, breaks tackles and runs in from 50 yards to score, Baggy converts 0-14.

Straight from ko Penrith attack and score out wide 5-14

Again after home team pressure we clear our lines only for the ball to end up with the Penrith backs who are lightning quick and score a 7 pointer 12-14.

Skipper Pete then goes for an interception and knocks the ball on earning himself a trip to the sin bin, as their President said as he walked passed me “Daft rule that”

14 man Boro are still attacking and from a lineout in the 22 they start a driving maul which is stopped illegally and the official awarded a penalty try and the offender was given a 10 minute rest 12-21

Penrith hit back with a try HT 17-21

Great D from Boro results in a lineout in the opposition 22″ that is driven and scrum half Matty Todd steers it over the whitewash to score the first points of the second stanza Baggy converts 17-28

Yet another driving maul sees Joe Sawdon score 17-33

Now the highlight of the game of the match for me, from a lineout in our own half the pack catch the ball and set off on a driving maul that goes 40 yards, Yes 40 yards until a penalty is conceded by the home side. Baggy elects to go for goal but the effort misses and Penrith try to run the ball out from behind their own line they get the ball 15 yards out and replacement Toby Tremlett intercepts and runs in to score. A great effort from Andrew Baggett sees the conversion rebound from the post. 17-38

The home team score a late consolation making the final score Penrith 24 The Mighty Boro 38

What a match another 2 sides going at it hammer and tongs with our heroes coming out on top. Phew.

Thank you to Penrith who looked after us very well. Great to see old friends Peter, Tony, Jock et al.

Next week we return to the Parc du Acklam for a home fixture versus Keswick KO 3pm.
