Ealing Trailfinders 44 Yorkshire Carnegie 19

11th November 2017 4:42 pm By Phil Daly

Yorkshire Carnegie endured a frustrating afternoon down at Ealing Trailfinders as they lost out 44-19 to the London side who sealed the win with two late tries.

Yorkshire Carnegie made a strong start to the game against the team who are second only to Bristol in this season’s Greene King IPA Championship.

Pete Lucock, making his 100th league start for the club, created the first chance with a well timed wide pass that put Mike Myerscough in space and he was well supported. However, Trailfinders managed to regroup and could clear their lines.

The home side then made the most of their first real attack. Having gained advantage when Carnegie were caught offside, they moved the ball wide and Peter Lydon went in in the corner. He converted his own try to make it 7-0 after nine minutes.

Yorkshire then dealt another blow when they conceded a second try almost straight away. To rub salt into the wound, there looked to be a forward pass in the build up however there was no doubting the finish as Will Harries dummied to offload back inside before scampering around the outside of Chris Elder to score. Lydon added the conversion.

Carnegie found their feet after that second try, helped by ill discipline from the home side, and eventually the referee lost patience with the Trailfinders and awarded Yorkshire a penalty try after a string of penalties from the line out drive. With the automatic conversion, James Lowes’ side were right back in the game at 14-7. Ealing were also reduced to 14 men with former Carnegie player Harry Casson sin binned after the penalty try.

However, it was the Trailfinders who reacted best after that, despite their numerical disadvantage. Carnegie failed to deal with the restart well enough and Lydon kicked a penalty to edge his side into a 17-7 lead. And the gap was increased after 30 minutes when Rayn Smid crashed through the visitors defence to score between the posts. Lydon added the simple conversion to give his side a 24-7.

Carnegie needed to find a way back into the game and they created a superb try just before half time. Stevie McColl managed to pick up a pass off his boot laces before putting Chris Elder in space and the winger produced a fine finish. McColl added the conversion from the touchline to cut the gap to just ten points.

It could have been even better at half time but McColl pushed his long range penalty chance wide and it remained 24-14 at the break.

Ealing increased their lead at the start of the second half when Carnegie were penalised on their own put in at the scrum and Lydon slotted over his second penalty of the game.

The visitors were dealt a blow at half time when Lucock was forced off due to an injury he suffered in the first half which meant Tom Casson was forced into emergency cover at fly half.

With their big lead, Ealing were more cautious in the second half which allowed Carnegie to seize the initiative. Having gone close from a couple of line outs they did eventually cross for a third try after 65 minutes when Casson produced a superb cut out pass to give Elder space on the touchline. The winger raced clear and away from the cover to score. McColl was unable to add the conversion so it remained 27-19.

Ealing made the most of a rare attack when Lydon kicked his third penalty of the game after some desperate try line defence from the visitors.

Yorkshire tried to create a fourth try in the closing stages but they were unable to finish off a number of half chances and Ealing clinically sealed the victory with Rayn Smid crossing for his second try of the game to secure all five points and deny Carnegie any consolation on their way back up the M1.

The Trailfinders gave the scoreline an inflated look with a late try from Piers O’Conor. Lydon converted both tries to give his side a 44-19 victory.
