Lacklustre Performance By Beavers Sees Them Slip Up In Scarborough

Lacklustre Performance By Beavers Sees Them Slip Up In Scarborough
November 26, 2017

Not a lot to say about this match as a lacklustre performance from a surprisingly low key Beverley RUFC side resulted in them being well beaten by an impressive looking Scarborough outfit.

Principally, the difference between the sides on the day was that Scarborough’s defence was superb all match but Beverley’s was, uncharacteristically, poor.

An excellent game this between two evenly matched sides played in a good spirit by both sides.

Beverley RUFC , playing down the considerable slope and with the wind behind, immediately took advantage and mounted siege on the Brod’s line. After three minutes No 8 Isaac Keighley crashed over for a try which skipper Phil Duboulay duly converted to make the score 0-7.

Beavers Workmanlike Display Secures Win Against Bradford
October 30, 2017

Bradford Salem started this match in a manner which belied their lowly league position and Beverley were put under extreme pressure for the opening 10 minutes.

Bradford’s forwards were swarming all over them, albeit usually from suspiciously looking offside positions, and they were unable to escape from their own 22 and hold onto the ball for long.

Beavers Grind Out The Win As They Beat Selby On The Road

October 23, 2017

Miserable  cold, windy and wet conditions led inevitably to a game littered with mistakes and infringements and an afternoon to forget.

It has to be said that both sides endeavoured to put on a show but matters were not helped by the referee who must have been breathless by the end, judging by the amount of breath he expended blowing his whistle! Never the less he was there, and the conditions were ,no doubt, just as unpleasant for him.

Beverley RUFC Enjoy Good Home Win Against Keighley At Beaver Park

Beverley RUFC Enjoy Good Home Win Against Keighley At Beaver Park
October 8, 2017

Beverley RUFC kicked off on a wet and blustery afternoon at Beaver Park to start this Yorkshire Division 1 fixture, and immediately mounted an assault on the Keighley line.

But, largely due to determined defence by Keighley, were unable to capitalise on their possession of the ball in the early exchanges. In fact during this early period Keighley were unable to hang on to the ball for long enough to get out of their own half.

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 came under pressure immediately after losing the kick-off and Rishworthians camped in Beverley’s 22. After 9 minutes they were awarded the inevitable penalty and Josh Kelly made the score 3-0 to the home side.

The pressure continued and things looked ominous for the Beavers when Rishworthian’s tricky young winger Joe Billing sliced through for an excellent try which Josh Kelly duly converted to make it 10-0.

Conditions were perfect for this season’s opener between York and Beverley at Clifton Park and what a cracking match this turned out to be.

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.
