Entertaining tens derby

Weston-super-Mare RFC 48 – 55 Nailsea and Backwell RFC

Match Report by Kenny Braidwood

The school half term meant that both teams had reduced numbers for this match. The result was a ten a side game which was both entertaining and high scoring.

The first of Weston’s five tries of the first half was well taken by Euan Braidwood who finished off a patient move up the left hand side of the pitch which saw Weston make steady ground with good control of the ball at the breakdown. Conversion missed
Both teams exchanged scores throughout the game and it was Nailsea and Backwell who scored next and added the extras.

Dom Marshall was a constant threat with his powerful runs through midfield. Weston’s second try of the half came from one such run which saw Marshall cross the whitewash to the right of the posts. Again the opposition struck back with a second converted try after a well-placed
kick was chased down.

Weston scored a further three tries in the first half with AJ Major and Jack Press getting on the score sheet as well as a second for Dom Marshall. Nailsea and Backwell kept the game very close with a further three tries of their own. At least two of which followed missed tackles by Weston.

Half time – Weston 29 – 24 Nailsea and Backwell

The second half kept up the same scoring exchange as the first. Again Weston were the first to score with Dom Marshall getting his third try after Joseph Connolly disrupted a Nailsea and Backwell line out on the left touch line. The ball was worked across the pitch and out to Dom Marshall to score.

Dom Marshall was quickly on the score sheet again with yet another tackle breaking run through the oppositions defence. Nailsea and Backwell came back at Weston with two well taken tries in quick succession.

The ebb and flow of the game continued with Ruben Picardo shrugging off the attention of a couple of Nailsea and Backwell defenders to finish off a good move straight up the middle of the pitch.

The last ten minutes of the game saw Nailsea and Backwell come back strongly at Weston. Constantly making good use of the space behind the Weston defence with a couple of deft kicks they manage to score a further three tries to take the lead.

Weston threatened to salvage a draw when in the final minute Jack Press guided the team up the pitch and set Dom Marshall off on one last run but he was tackled with ten metres to go and the ball was knocked forward, bringing the game to an end.

Both teams can take positives away from this game. Playing ten a side rugby on a full size pitch was a test of all the players’ fitness and skill. The game was played with good discipline from both sides and it was noted that despite the urgency of the game there were very few penalties given away by either team.

Man of the match went to Dom Marshall for his constant breaking of the gain line and well taken tries.
