Beavers Get Back On Track With Victory Over Moortown

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.

Beverley Go Down To Hullensians’ At Beaver Park

Beverley Go Down To Hullensians' At Beaver Park
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.

Rampant Beverley Wrap Their Season Up In Style Against Acklam
April 24, 2017

Beverley rounded off the season in rampant mood as they demolished a very determined Acklam side by 67 points to 10.

From the kick-off Beverley put pressure on the Acklam line but were unable to break through. This was largely due to the number of infringements by the Acklam forwards which resulted in four penalties and a yellow card for them within the first 5 minutes.

Entertaining Beavers Leave It Late To Win Again
April 10, 2017

Beverley RUFC travelled to Leeds on Saturday and were able to record their 11 th victory in their last 13 matches, this despite the disruption of arriving half an hour late due to the team coach breaking down on the journey.

This meant that the pre match warm up needed to be curtailed but nevertheless they started brightly and after 8 minutes Jack Garvin raced in for an excellent try on the right wing which Phil Duboulay converted to give them a 7 point lead.

Heroic Defending By Beverley Secures Massive Win Over York
March 13, 2017

This was a great performance by a Beverley side heavily outweighed by their much bigger opponents who badly needed a win to maintain their challenge to make the playoff for promotion to North 1.

Phil Duboulay opened the scoring for the Beavers with a penalty after 10 minutes and after 17 minutes Beverley went further ahead with a smart try from Luke Hazell which Phil Duboulay duly converted to make it 10-0 to the home side.

Beavers Beat Ribblesdale To Make It Six Wins On The Spin

Beavers Beat Ribblesdale To Make Six Wins On The Spin
February 5, 2017

A bit of a curate’s egg here. There were flashes of scintillating rugby, mainly from Beverley, but for the most part this game never rose above the mundane.

Beverley deservedly won in the end but they made heavy weather of it. They were the better side but they were never quite at their best, probably through being without several of their key players.

Beavers Beat Local Rivals Hullensian In Scrappy Affair

Beavers Beat Local Rivals Hullensian In Scrappy Affair
December 20, 2016

This was a poor match. Very scrappy with Beverley RUFC looking strangely under par, particularly following their excellent showing last week in the defeat of Bradford Salem.

Their passing was way below their normal standard and the intended receiver was invariably scrabbling about at their boots or stretching way above their heads.

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.
