London Scottish 29 Yorkshire Carnegie 19

13th January 2018 4:54 pm By Phil Daly

Yorkshire Carnegie conceded nineteen unanswered points as they lost out at London Scottish in the penultimate pool game in the British and Irish Cup.

Yorkshire Carnegie arrived at the Athletic Ground hoping it would be a case of third time lucky having lost to London Scottish and Richmond on the same patch already this season in the league.

The early exchanges saw the home side on the attack. Yorkshire managed to hold them out initially but a well orchaestrated drive from a line out saw the Exiles skipper Isaac Miller driven over. Jake Sharp added the conversion and a penalty soon after to give his side an ideal start with a 10-0 lead after 12 minutes.

Yorkshire grew in ascendency after that and had two good chances firstly when Stevie McColl nearly put winger George Watkins away before Josh Bainbridge attempted to break down the blindside. Carnegie looked certain to score on their next attack from a set move but Watkins was tackled inches short. However, James Lowes’ side kept their heads and, from the ensuing scrum, moved the ball in field before Mike Myerscough powered his way over from close range. Alex Davies added the simple conversion to cut the gap to 10-7 after 27 minutes.

Yorkshire then took the lead five minutes later with a fine team try that was eventually finished by Josh Bainbridge. Bainbridge had been involved in the build up after a great break by Ben West and Fred Burdon looked certain to score before losing his footing. He did keep his composure however and offloaded to the back rower to touch down. Davies missed the conversion attempt but his side now led 12-10.

It got even better for Carnegie in the final minutes of the first half with 90 metre break away try that involved Mike Myerscough and Fred Burdon before Forsyth raced through to score. Davies added the conversion to make the half time score 19-10 to the visitors.

Scottish started the second half just as they had the first, on the front foot, but Carnegie had looked like they have weathered the storm. However, the Exiles did eventually hit back and it was hooker Miller who crossed again as he supported a break on the inside to run in between the posts from ten metres out. Sharp added the conversion to cut the gap to just two points.

The game then turned on the hour mark with a break away try. Initially it appeared that Yorkshire had been awarded a penalty at a ruck but when Casson’s kick was blocked referee Anthony Woodthorpe waved play on and Scottish went the length of the field to score through Joe Smith. Sharp added the conversion to put his side 24-19 in front.

Carnegie had a half chance after that when Jack Whetton broke clear but they could not make the most of it and Scottish soon crossed for a bonus point earning fourth try when replacement back Nick Scott finished well in the corner. Sharp missed the conversion attempt but his side had a ten point lead.

Yorkshire battled hard in the closing stages to gain try and losing bonus points but the home side held firm and now Carnegie’s hopes of progressing to the knock out stages of the Cup are out of their control ahead of the final pool game against Jersey Reds at Scarborough next Saturday.
