Beavers Suffer Heavy Defeat at Penrith

March 13, 2011

This was a day best forgotten.  Beverley RUFC were totally outplayed from start to finish and produced as abject a performance as they have given for a long time.  It is difficult to comprehend how a side capable of playing such thrilling rugby as we have often seen this season can lapse into the sort of mediocrity we saw here.  Yet in the end it was probably not the defeat…


Poor Show From Beavers as Birkenhead Win

March 6, 2011

Not at all a good day for Beverley RUFC.  They were well beaten here and deservedly so by a side which showed far more determination and vigour.  Yet early in the second half the game was there for the winning. From 20-0 down Beverley RUFC had clawed their way back to 20-10 and were in total command.  Sadly the carelessness which bedevilled them all afternoon caused them inexplicably to lose…


Bradford Snatch Victory From Beverley at Beaver Park

February 6, 2011

A pulsating match and a thrilling finish.  A Phil Dale penalty five minutes from time looked to have won it for Beverley but Bradford came back again at the very death to snatch victory with a last gasp penalty. For half the match Bradford gave Beverley RUFC the run-around with some superb back play and it looked like Beverley were in for a mauling as the visitors cruised to an…


Beverley RUFC Vs Darlington Mowden Park: Report & Pictures

January 10, 2011

At last some rugby.  After five weeks of snow and frozen grounds Beverley RUFC finally got back into action, albeit on a heavy-going second-team pitch.  They might have wished they had had another week off.  They certainly looked the rustier of the two sides here and could hardly complain at a thirteen points defeat.  With their half backs away in Australia for the rest of the season and several other…


Beavers Push League Leaders All The Way

October 10, 2010

Another tight encounter for Beverley and yet another grandstand finish.  They were never more than a single score behind and were desperately unlucky not to snatch victory in the frantic final minutes.  Chester, top of the table with five wins out of five and averaging over thirty points a game, might have been looking for an easy ride here.  Not only did they ultimately have to rely on the boot…


Beverley Beat Visitors Sandal at Beaver Park

October 3, 2010

You couldn’t ask for better than this.  Two teams going flat out with non-stop attacking rugby gave us a great match.  Seven tries and most of them pretty good ones.  Beverley have been threatening all season to click into shape and today it all came together with a fine performance that brought them a well deserved victory.  With only one previous defeat and the best defensive record in the league…


Beavers Fightback Though Lose at Darlington

September 26, 2010

So near and yet so far.  For the second week running Beverley were down and out and then came back superbly to get to within a single score of victory.  In the end they probably lost this one because they gave away too many soft scores in the middle period, principally through poor tackling and wayward kicking out of defence. Once again they completely dominated the first quarter of an…
