The weather was certainly not what was hoped for as rain and wind swept around the Scarborough ground for this weeks under 9 matrix fixture.
Conditions could at best have been described as soft but a more honest assessment would be to describe the scene as reminiscent of a mud bath.
This proved to be a key highlight for the children but less of a joy for adults watching on knowing what washing would follow once back home.
Beverley needed to join forces with boys from the Driffield squad to create a ‘Barbarian Team’ made up of Joel Hardy, Flynn Harwood, James Hebb, Alex Gorman and from Driffield Nicholas Moulds, Daniel Driskell, and Ben Tytek.
Communication between the team was much improved from previous games with players being more vocal both in defence and in attack. There was some great tackle work put in by Tytek, Harwood, Hardy and Gorman.
Moulds provided solid opposition in defence while Driskell and Hebb capitalised on every opportunity to run the ball in.
‘Man of the match’ was awarded to Hebb who was focused throughout all the games and delivered his best performance of the season.
