West 46 Malton & Norton 14

West 46 Malton & Norton 14
Hat-trick A hat-trick from Ryan Painter and four further tries were enough to see off Malton & Norton and make it four wins from four in the league.

We started brightly and pretty much from the opening whistle moved into the visitors 22. We were rewarded with a penalty in-front of the posts which Stu Waites duly slotted. Sam Triffit had a tougher chance to level the scores minutes later but his kick drifted wide before Waites should have doubled the lead but skewed a straightforward kick past the right hand post.

It had been quite an uneventful half as far as the scoreboard operators were concerned with both teams defending well and neither able to finish any of their chances. That all changed in the final ten minutes of the half which brought four tries and a yellow card!

The first score came thanks to an overthrown Malton & Norton lineout close to their own line which dropped straight into the hands of Andrew Rollins who cleverly slipped the ball to Sam Miller to go over for the try. Painter then got his first with a simple dash to the line after a quick tap penalty before Tom Newitt pulled one back for the visitors – capitalising well on our turnover ball.

Painter soon restored our advantage, finishing from close range following good work from Andy Cheslin and Rollins, and before the half-time whistle blew there was still time for visiting scrum half Rob Featherstone to see yellow after he came in at the side to prevent another counter-attack on half-way.

The half-time break proved no interruption to the scoring rate as just five minutes into the second period Painter completed his hat-trick when the ball went loose from the base of a Malton & Norton scrum and he picked up and dove in at the right corner.

It was the opposite corner that was the scene of the next touch down with some quick hands along the backline giving Colin Cheslin just enough space to squeeze over by the corner flag.

Despite trailing 32-7  Malton & Norton had their best period of the game with sustained possession for a long period and their endeavour was eventually rewarded when a break up the middle was finished well once again by winger Newitt.

The game appeared to be drifting to its conclusion but in the final five minutes we put a bit of extra gloss on the scoreline with two tries in quick succession. First Dan Boatman took an offload from Adam Coates and strolled over the line and then Liam Bailey, who had made numerous breaks through the mid-field, once again broke and tackle and beat two men to get a deserved score. Peter Youll added the final conversion after Stu Waites had to leave the field with a leg injury.

Welcome back Pedro ... yes, a good performance against perhaps the best side we have faced so far?
Rochdale next weekend will be the biggest test so far.
But how good to see so many young lads doing so well.
It took some time in this game, but once we got going we showed again there are a lot of points in this side.

Excellent result and great credit to M&N who were trying to run the ball right to the end.
I've rarely seen a side suffer so many injuries. In a game fought in the right spirit by both sides I don't know whether this was down to a lack of fitness or the hard tackling of the likes of Bailey and Co,

We must keep up this level of performance if we are to stay at the top of the league. The ah rd work put in during the summer is reaping its reward and I think massive credit should go to all the coaches for bringing on such a young side.

By, it sounds a bit rough in that stand. Just like the Stretford End in the bad old days.
Does the club need to appoint stewards?

Excellent performance as reported and reckon M&N will not have too much problem this year. Rochdale could be tricky as they seem to be recovering from their 8 point deduction otherwise would be in 5th spot. So I suspect we will be in for a hard game and will do well to get points out of our visit. But the teamwork and hard work put in by the coaches and the guys over training sessions may hold us in good stead. Hoping we can keep the run going actually away from base this weekend so will send early my good luck wishes to WEST and all the club teams playing this next weekend.
