Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback

Beverley Fall Just Short Despite Staging Late Comeback
March 7, 2020

What an extraordinary match. The final score made it look close but it seldom was. After twenty-five minutes Beverley was cruising at 19 – 0 up and playing some fluent attacking rugby.

Fifty minutes later they were 40-26 down having been given a thorough going-over by a resurgent home side. A strong comeback in the last five minutes then brought them back up to within two points to earn them a bonus point.

Beverley Enjoy A Good Win At Home Against Bradford

Beverley Secure Important Win Against West Leeds At Beaver Park
March 2, 2020

Given the current relentless rain, floods, and gale-force winds it might have been expected that the only winners today would be those who stayed at home or, God forbid, went shopping with their wives.

Happily, the sun came out, the pitch held up pretty well, and only a stiff crosswind hampered what turned out to be an entertaining game. It was not a particularly memorable afternoon but in the end, it was a good win for Beverley.

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.

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.

Disappointing Performance From Beavers Sees Them Beaten By Goole
December 8, 2019

A dry day with high cloud and a gentle breeze and a pitch in very good condition given the recent wet weather, bode well for the game between these old rivals, who last competed in a league fixture in 2005.

There is no commentary around the first 5 minutes of the game as the referee blew his whistle for the game to start “a few minutes” early. Unfortunately, the news did not filter to the spectators in the bar.

Beware the ides of March.  But not this week.  After the dismal affair a week ago at Dinnington Beverley were back on top form securing another outstanding bonus point win – the seventh in their last eight games. 

Crossleyans started the match only one point behind Beverley but never really got a look-in and Beverley comfortably cruised home scoring six tries in the process all of which Phil Duboulay converted in difficult conditions.

Beverley Get Second Half Of Their Season With Victory Over Pontefract
January 7, 2019

Beverley RUFC started the second half of the season entertaining Pontefract on a cold and grey day, but at least dry conditions underfoot made the prospect of some good rugby realistic and so it proved.

In September the Beavers secured a victory over Pontefract in the corresponding fixture over in the West Riding. Results since then shown that Ponte has improved substantially and they currently sit fourth in the table, with 13 points more than Beverley.
