Yorkshire Carnegie 43 Dragons Premiership Select 22

9th December 2017 4:35 pm By .

Yorkshire Carnegie travelled to Huddersfield YMCA for their second On the Road game of the season in the British and Irish Cup and a young side, with an average age of just 21, were able to earn a bonus point victory with seven tries against Dragons Premiership Select.

Josh Bainbridge was selected as captain in his 49th appearance for the club and there was a debut for Leeds Beckett winger Harry Robinson who was named in the starting line up, whilst fly half Harry Davey returned to the side having won the man of the match award in the last three games with Huddersfield RUFC.

There was also debuts for Will Vaughan, who joined the club on loan from Bath, plus tight head prop Xavier Valentine, flanker Trystan Lloyd and fly half Michael Waters who have all been part of the in form Leeds Beckett side this season in the BUCS Super Rugby competition.

The team faced cold conditions at Laund Hill, with snow beginning to fall before kick off, following freezing conditions over night and it took the team some time to adjust and find their footing in the game.

The visitors were rewarded for their early pressure when Callum Morris raced over in the corner, but Dorian Jones was unable to add the conversion.

Carnegie hit back with some good attacking play from Darren Atkins, who made good ground before combing with Harry Davey to almost send Elder away.  Moments later Carnegie showcased their skill in the maul when Harry Newborn was driven over from close range for their opening try.  Davey was unable to give his side the lead as his conversion attempt drifted off target.

The Dragons nudged further ahead on 18 minutes when Jon Goodridge picked up the ball from a perfectly placed crossfield and ran over for the Dragons second.  Once again Dorian Jones was unable to add the extras.

Despite being 10-5 behind the hosts were beginning to look more dominant as the half went on and on 22 minutes debutant Harry Robinson went over in the corner after a powerful run from Newborn had got his side in a strong attacking position.  With the conversion missed the score was level at 10-10.

After earning two quick penalties, Carnegie increased the pressure and following a long period camped on the Dragons line they spread the ball across the field to Chris Elder, who weaved his way through the defence for his first try of the afternoon.  Davey added the conversion to extend his side’s lead to 17-10 going in at the break.

Carnegie made a positive start to the second half and were rewarded with their third try on 44 minutes.  Matt Smith made the initial break to set up Darren Atkins for his first try for the club which secured the try bonus point.  Davey again added the conversion to make it 24-10.

Chase Smith reduced the gap with the Dragons’ third try but the conversion was missed and a fightback did not look it was on the card for the Welsh outfit and five minutes later Carnegie were in a again when Atkins scooped up the ball from a cross field kick from Davey and got the ball out wide to the supporting Louis Brown and the young winger raced clear to the corner.

Barry Nightingale looked like he had found space down the wing for Dragons but he was stopped on his run by strong defence and then Carnegie switched to attack when Chris Elder intercepted and sprinted from deep in his own half for his second under the posts.  Davey’s conversion bringing the score to 36-15 with 18 minutes to play.

Another interception led to the next try.  This time Dan Sanderson stole possession for Carnegie in his own half and raced to the half way line before offloading to the supporting Elder, and the centre put his foot down to claim his hat trick.

Davey’s conversion had put Carnegie comfortably ahead at 43-15, but with seven minutes to play Dragons had time to cross for a bonus point try of their own when James Leadbetter found a gap to dive over.  Stefan Jones added their first conversion of the game to bring the final score to 43-22.
