Sweet Victory for Beverley RUFC on the Road

April 15, 2010

This was an extraordinary game of rugby. Littered equally with mistakes and champagne rugby from the Beavers it was nevertheless an exciting game with, eventually, the right outcome. As is normal with the Beavers, this last away game of the season is used as an occasion for the players to let their hair down, dress up in fancy dress and have a good night out on the way home. Unfortunately…


Beverley RUFC Vs Darlington Mowden Park

April 5, 2010

Plenty of good rugby but overall a strange game.  For Beverley RUFC it was a curate’s egg performance – good and bad in about equal measure.  For twenty five minutes they played some cracking stuff, were leading 17-5, and looked as though they would romp away with it.  Then unaccountably it all went wrong and after that, apart from the last ten minutes, all the good rugby came from Darlington…


Rossendale Vs Beverley RUFC

March 16, 2010

Over zealous brandishing of yellow cards spoilt what would have been a cracking game at Rossendale.  Ironically it was a match played throughout in a good spirit with both sides intent on fast open rugby.  Almost certainly it would have been a tight contest between two sides which before the rash of the yellow carding looked to be evenly matched and both up for the win. Beverley RUFC took the…

Artic Weather Threatens Beaver’s Trip to Sheffield

Middlesbrough Vs Beverley RUFC

October 19, 2009

This was more like it.  Although they went down narrowly to high flying Middlesbrough Beverley RUFC were almost back to their best and were desperately unlucky not to win this match.  Not many teams get any change out of a visit to Acklam Park but Beverley RUFC played enough good rugby here to have won this game comfortably.  The home side were seldom in the Beverley RUFC 22 whereas Beverley…

Beverley RUFC Vs Cleckheaton

September 26, 2009

This was all very scrappy and pretty poor fare.  Beverley somehow ended up winners although it was hard to see how.  They were totally outplayed from start to finish by a side that was up for it and played all the decent rugby.  It was all a far cry from the superb rugby Beverley were playing in the first two games of the season.  They badly missed the directional play…
