What a game between two 151 year old clubs up in the ToonThe home side started strongly and opened the scoring with a try out wide 7-0Boro then struggled up front with PP being allowed to scrummage like 20 years ago and wrap the prop up underneath. The official giving the penalty to the home side. This angered veteran Josh Lynas who’s talking out of turn earned him a 10 minute rest. The ensuing penalty was kicked to touch and from the line out PP scored another 7 pointer 14-0The lads from Teesside down to 14 players, raced up the field and following successive rucks Myles Colvin crashed over and Brendan Hill added the extras. 14-7With Boro still not getting the rub of the green PP add 2 more converted tries before the half hour is up. 28-7Heading for the proverbial Cricket Score here, But no that proved to be PP’s last scores of the matchHT Percy Park 28 Middlesbrough 7For the opening stanza in the second half it’s all Boro, whatever is in those half time oranges can I get some for my hangover this morning.PP are still playing the same way but Boro are like men possessed, running the ball at every opportunity, Shay Barritt deftly kicking through, strong running from Jack Mac, Brendan, Sean Joseph, Matthew Marsay, Harry Bryce Joe Macneil Will Deeks. Chris Lord controlling things behind the pack, Oh the Boro pack what a second half from them.Covered with mud from top to bottom, barely recognisable from each other they went at the opposition runs tackles hard but fair, what a sight to see. Their efforts bringing a try for returning hooker wing commander Joe Sawdon 28-12Boro forwards take a bow Josh Lynas Joe Sawdon Myles Colvin Finlay Magowan James Walker Rohan Brown Alistair Lang Toby Tremlett Scott Taylor Top Top Effort fellasCrash Bang Wallop for the rest of the half but only a penalty added  by Hill and the final score ends up Percy Park 28 Middlesbrough 15Thank you to all who came up to support and welcome back to the Conquistadors MikeGlenis Wright after their South American adventure spending their children’s inheritance, good on yer lol.Next week we start our defence of the Yorkshire Cup with an away trip to Cleckheaton in the Heart of the Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle, if you aim for a 2pm kick off you won’t be far offHasta La Vista We’ll Be BackJabba
