Yorkshire Carnegie U17 had a 29-17 win over Newcastle at a cold and windy Kingston Park running in five tries to two at Kingston Park.

The Falcons took a 3-0 lead before fly half Harry Davey played flat at the line and managed to break from 20m out scoring under the posts and adding the conversion, 3-7. 

The first half saw both teams wanting to play rugby with a great attitude for the majority, which led to a high error count. 

Falcons hit back just before half time with a driving line out in the left touch line adding a difficult conversion to take a 10-7 half time lead. 

Immediately following the break replacement backrow Ben Longton scored following a passage of play in to the opposition half and returning to the left wing to make it 10-12.

Davey then intercepted a pass on half way for a easy run in to make it 10-17. The Falcons forwards rallied and scored another driving lineout on 53 minutes adding the conversation to draw level 17-17. 

A lot of changes were made through the second half and on 57 minutes Grayson Maguire linked up well with the backs to break the line and run in, Davey adding the conversion 17-24. 

With confidence now high, growing through the second half fullback James Pinder finished off a well worked team try. Backs and Forwards linked well and played through the phases to give Yorkshire Carnegie U17s a 17-29 win.
 
Coach Jon Pendlebury commented, "For the short time we have been together with the players, the coaching staff were pleased with many of the areas come through in the game, particularly on attack. It gives us a great foundation to work from towards Sale Sharks in April."
