Beverley went down to the heavy defeat they might have expected here but there was no disgrace in this loss. Sandal with only one defeat this season are flying high and together with Sale
Prior to the kick-off both sides lined up for a minutes silence in memory of longstanding Beverley member Frank Ankrett who had died the previous week.
After their fine performance the previous week this was a disappointing day for Beverley. Nor did the final score in any way flatter Billingham.
Plenty of spirit but not much memorable rugby. After recent rain and overnight frost the going was pretty heavy and this was never going to be a classic.
This was some match. Beverley came back from 40-6 down to get to within nine points of snatching victory. Given another few minutes they might easily have done it.
Another spirited fightback by Beverley RUFC but again not quite enough. They went from 8-39 to 29-39 and given another five minutes might well have snatched a losing bonus point.
A fine autumn day and ideal conditions for rugby but in the end not much cheer for Beverley RUFC. Perhaps predictably they found themselves totally outclassed.
Some good rugby but not a particularly memorable afternoon. Beverley had a good first half and led 21-17 at the break but fell away in the second half allowing Billingham to leave with a bonus point win.
A rather curious game. For half an hour Beverley were all over the place and within twenty minutes had already handed Lymm three tries on a plate. They were simply awful.
Beverley RUFC first match of a new season. The earlier rain had eased up and playing conditions were ideal. Sadly the game did not quite live up to the anticipation.
A carefree romp with eighty six points brought the curtain down on another season at Beaver Park. Neither side had anything at stake here and both threw the ball about with abandon.
They do not come more exciting than this. This was some match, with an unbearable last five minutes for both sets of supporters. Huddersfield are going full belt for promotion and against a side
This was more like it from Beverley. After a fairly dismal performance the previous week Beverley RUFC got back to form here and cruised home in fine style
Cold, wet, windy, a long suspension of play for a serious injury, and a stand full of home supporters who seldom paused in their relentless whingeing at the referee.
An excellent try by Tupai running in from halfway line at break neck speed seals the points for Beverley RUFC as they make it back to back wins at Beaver Park
A humdinger of a match. An encounter with high flying Sale when nearly a dozen of your first team squad are unavailable would not be many clubs’ first choice for a fixture.
A strange game. Seventy points and the closest of finishes but by no means the rousing encounter the final score suggests. Beverley started disastrously and spent all the match trying to catch up as Westoe
Wind, mud, and a day to forget for Beverley. Given the conditions there was never likely to be much finesse on view but Waterloo played by far the better rugby and fully deserved to win.
