Aside from Rhodri Davies’ late consolation, that was as good as it got for the visitors, as a second penalty try, Luke Morahan, Jason Harris-Wright and Tom Varndell wrapped up an eighth successive league win for the hosts, with Callum Sheedy’s drop goal – to go with his four conversions – completing the scoring.

Yorkshire Carnegie 14 Bristol Rugby 44

17th November 2017 10:56 pm By .

Yorkshire Carnegie suffered a disappointing 14-44 defeat against league leaders Bristol at Emerald Headingley.

Bristol earned a bonus point win thanks to two tries from Luke Morahan and a superb kicking display from Ian Madigan, despite a positive start from James Lowes’ side.

The hosts, who had lost their last game against Ealing, looked lively in the opening quarter and forced their opponents to defend. Pete Lucock made a good chip kick to give his side a chance but Andy Uren got to the ball first. Crucially Carnegie were unable to capitalise on their early chances and a clinical Bristol outfit soon punished them.

On 15 minutes Bristol took the lead after quick hands in midfield spread the ball to Tuisi Pisi and the centre sprinted across field before dummying and going passed Pete Lucock and Charlie Beech on his way to the try line.

Ian Madigan successfully kicked the conversion and then added the two penalties to extend Bristol’s lead to 13-0 after half an hour.

Four minutes later, Pisi turned provider with a perfectly timed pass to Luke Morahan who jinked his way through the Carnegie defence before putting his foot down and running to the corner for Bristol’s second from 40 metres out.

Before the break Madigan extended the lead with another penalty to see his side go in at the break with a 23 point lead.

Bristol took little time to increase that score in the second half, with another sensational solo try, this time from full back Jordan Williams, who stepped round the Carnegie defenders and then found some extra pace to break away and cross for a try, despite the desperate efforts from Will Homer. Once again Madigan added the conversion.

Yorkshire Carnegie never put their heads down and showed great spirit and they were rewarded with a try from Richard Beck following some good attacking play in the Bristol half. Stevie McColl added the conversion and then crossed for a try after a strong run allowed him to break clear before he stretched out to get the ball over the line. The full back then converted his own try to bring Carnegie back in the game at 14–30.

The comeback was short lived however and on 68 minutes Ross McMillan got the bonus point try for Bristol. Steven Luatua got his team in a dangerous position with a diagonal run and then the ball was passed to McMillan, who was waiting on the wing to run over unopposed in the corner.

With nine minutes to play Bristol crossed for their fifth try. Luke Morahan finished off a neat interchange between Tom Varndell and Dan Thomas, and left the Carnegie defence grasping as he raced to the try line. Madigan continued his 100% record with the boot with the conversion to seal the win for the visitors.
