Stags 22 City 17

Stags 22 City 17 From famine to feast. The numbers available were something we dream of every week. How nice it was to field 15 men and 8 subs. This also has a flip side which is trying to get all the lads a game and also a break in continuity...however you can't have everything.

Jay Corbett Stags
West started strongly with a super run from Jay Corbett (above) who skittled several defenders. The ball though was turned over and City cleared the lines. It was City however who scored first via a bulldozing run from their inside centre. 7-0.

West however were on the attack again with Corbett scoring and Quinny missing a sitter. 7-5.

After this the majority of the game was played between 22's with no side getting the upper hand. West were next to score through Mozza ( inset) who didn't know he had scored.

Blockhead then decided to make mass substitutions but didn't remember how many he had taken off. Thankfully Dicko managed to sort out the problem.
Sam Miller Stags
West then scored via Sammy Miller (above) who had managed to break into a trot. I think Miller then scored again but I was distracted.

Durham played very well and were a committed team who obviously play every week.

Well done to both sides.

Final score 22-17.

Another fantastic report. And some of my curry for the West Jest night ended up being on the tea menu. Heads up on numbers please or I'll start handing out meal tickets as a punishment....cos I can :-)
