Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory

Beverley Back On Top Form As They Romp To Victory
March 12, 2019

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 Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians

Beverley Recapture Early Season Spark With Win At Old Rishworthians
January 13, 2019

New year, new Beverley. After a disappointing late autumn in which they rather lost their way Beverley in 2019 look to have recaptured the early season spark that had them riding high in Yorkshire One.

Following their impressive win the previous week against Pontefract this was another first-class display and another well earned victory. Moreover, for most of the game, they did it with fourteen men after Alfie Hart-Fisher had been red-carded early on for dangerous play. They owed a lot to their pack which even down to seven men still ended the game looking the stronger of the two sets of forwards.

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score

Old Crossleyans Hold Out To Beat Beavers By A Single Score
November 18, 2018

A good natured crowd, a fast game, and a tight finish; this was a good day’s rugby. After three defeats in their last four league outings Beverley badly needed a win here.

Not to get one was a disappointment and they now find themselves languishing in mid-table. It wasn’t for the want of trying and there was plenty of enterprise but in the end they could have no complaint at the final result.

Beavers Exit Yorkshire Shield After High Scoring Encounter

Beavers Exit Yorkshire Shield After High Scoring Encounter
November 12, 2018

A close run thing but Beverley eventually went out of the Yorkshire Shield. It was a high scoring and absorbing game throughout and in the end, there were only two points in it.

Perhaps the relevant factor was that while Beverley’s scores all came from their own exertions every Moortown point resulted directly from a Beverley error. Beverley should have won this match comfortably but simply gave it away through their own profligacy.

Beverley Play Well But Suffer Eighteen Point Defeat At Hands Of Heath

Beverley Play Well But Suffer Eighteen Point Defeat At Hands Of Heath
October 21, 2018

This was a cracking game with bags of thrilling rugby. Both sides played throughout with flair and ambition providing plenty for the spectators to enjoy in the autumn sunshine.

For three-quarters of the game, the advantage swung one way then the other. It was only when Heath went two converted tries ahead with twenty minutes left that either side began to dominate. Despite the loss, this was much more like it from Beverley. After the dire showing of the previous week, they played well here and deserved better than an eighteen point defeat.

Beverley See Off Spirited Guisborough Side To Claim The Spoils

Beverley See Off Spirited Guisborough Side To Claim The Spoils
September 30, 2018

In perfect playing conditions both sides contributed to an enjoyable game in the crisp autumn sunshine providing plenty of entertaining running rugby.

Beverley RUFC were clearly the classier of the two teams and they turned it on in the second half with some exhilarating play to bring them a comfortable victory.

September 24, 2018

In the end a comfortable win which took Beverley RUFC up to second place in Yorkshire One. After twenty minutes this match looked like being a whitewash.

Beverley were then already twenty four points up with a four try bonus point in the bag. But by the time the game went into its last quarter it had all changed and Beverley, while not exactly hanging on, were certainly having their work cut out to finish with the win.

September 3, 2018

Plenty here for Beverley RUFC to take encouragement from but still a hugely disappointing outcome to this opening fixture. For three-quarters of the match it had all looked so promising.

Beverley led 19-12, were well on top, and looked odds-on winners until they fell apart in the last quarter of an hour during which they conceded four tries and ended up with a fairly heavy defeat.

Beverley Beat Weatley Hills Earning Bonus Points At Beaver Park

Beverley Beat Weatley Hills Earning Bonus Points At Beaver Park
December 10, 2017

A five point bonus win but not one of Beverley’s better performances. They got there in the end but it was heavy going and Wheatley will think themselves unlucky not to have gone away with at least a losing bonus point.

Beverley struggled all afternoon to come to terms with the chunky Wheatley forwards who ran powerfully and proved difficult to bring down. Beverley did score four tries but three of them came from isolated bursts into enemy territory. In the end they won because they took their chances when they got them.

Beavers Get Back On Track With Victory Over Moortown

October 1, 2017

This was more like it. Not a great performance by any means but vastly improved from the dismal showing of the previous week and in the end a comfortable bonus point win.

In truth as a spectacle this was a pretty drab affair with not much running rugby and a relentless stream of penalties being awarded throughout.

September 24, 2017

Pray let it be a long time before we endure another afternoon like this. This was a truly awful game.

There was plenty of huffing and puffing and it was all played in a good spirit but the quality hardly ever rose above the mediocre. What little constructive rugby there was came from Hullensians who fully deserved their comfortable victory.

Beverley Withstand Late Scarborough Pressure To Win At Beaver Park

Beverley Withstand Late Scarborough Pressure To Win At Beaver Park
February 19, 2017

A helter-skelter of a match. Beverley deservedly won in the end but they had to withstand a terrific late Scarborough onslaught during which the two sides between them scored 31 points in the last 25 minutes.

Beverley led 25-6 going into the final quarter and looked to have the game comfortably in the bag. They had been the better side throughout and were playing by far the more controlled rugby. They could scarcely have anticipated the rumbustious ending to come.

Heath End Beavers Winning Streak In West Yorkshire

Heath End Beavers Winning Streak In West Yorkshire
February 13, 2017

A damp murky West Yorkshire afternoon and not one that Beverley will particularly want to remember.

In the heavy underfoot conditions they could never quite come to terms with the big Heath pack and in the end could have no complaint at the final outcome. They did have their moments particularly in the first half and on a firmer surface it could all have been very different.

Beverley Romp Home Against Salem In West Yorkshire

Beverley Romp Home Against Salem In West Yorkshire
December 12, 2016

A cracking game between two well-matched sides and a cracking Beverley RUFC performance.

Salem are a different proposition from the team that struggled earlier in the season and the young Beverley side would have expected a tough afternoon here. That they romped home in such fine style owed much to a composed team effort and a fearless attacking game.
