Pontefract Beat Beverley In Forgettable Encounter
January 13, 2020

Not much to write home about here. This was pretty dire stuff. Beverley will want to forget it as quickly as possible, and so will most of the spectators.

Pontefract were the better of the two sides and fully deserved their win but neither team or the game generally, ever really got going.

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win

Beverley Enjoy A Remarkable Result Starting 2020 With A Win
January 6, 2020

Beverley RUFC has been doing things the tough way this season, having had 4 narrow defeats and regular absenteeism through injury and unavailability, they still found themselves sitting third in the league with a fighting chance of regaining one of the top two spots.

An away trip to Leodiensian RUFC in Leeds, who are the only team to have beaten the previously undefeated top of the table Old Brodleians, was definitely an opportunity to succumb to a fifth defeat, given again there were many absentees from the starting line-up.

Kyle Edmund has shown promise in the past in the men’s draw, reaching the semi-finals of the competition in 2018.

Beavers Conclude 2019 With Gutsy Home Win Over Selby

Beavers Conclude 2019 With Gutsy Home Win Over Selby
December 15, 2019

A game between third and fourth prior to the fixture was always going to be a tight affair and so it proved on a filthy day at Beaver Park.

Selby kicked off towards the clubhouse and straight away Beverley were able to sustain possession through a series of phases and pin back Selby back with some clever kicking by Phil Duboulay. With the lineout and scrum functioning better than in recent weeks the Beavers were able to establish some control.
