Stockport Vs Beverley RUFC

March 21, 2010

Beverley paid the price for one dreadful lapse in defence to go down to a narrow defeat at league leaders Stockport.  The wet conditions meant the game was fairly error-strewn and often scrappy, but it was exciting and enjoyable for all that.  It was played throughout in a good spirit for which great credit is due to the refereeing of Simon Lazenby who kept it flowing with the minimum of…


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…


Rochdale Vs Beverley RUFC

March 8, 2010

This was another disappointing day for Beverley RUFC who were well beaten for the second week running by a side battling to avoid relegation.  After a fine run in mid season they look for the moment to have rather lost their way; in fact an unknowing spectator today would scarcely have guessed that of the two sides it was Rochdale who were the relegation threatened side. They went into this…


Thriller Sees Beverley Lose With Last Kick of the Game

February 22, 2010

This was a real thriller with the result in doubt until the very end.  Fixtures between these two sides invariably produce fast enjoyable encounters and this was no exception.  Their two games this season have yielded a total of 88 points with only a margin of two points difference between the sides.  Today it was once again a nail-biting affair in which Penrith snatched victory with a penalty at the…


Beverley RUFC Face Top of the Table Morley

February 11, 2010

Beverley RUFC travel the relatively short distance to Morley this Saturday to take on table toppers Morley RUFC in the National League 3 fixture. The Beavers themselves have been gradually creeping up the league table and are now in 5th place. Considering the bad run of injuries that they have experienced this season and the small squad that they have, this is a remarkable achievement. Last week they turned in…


Beverley RUFC Vs Chester RFC Match Report

February 10, 2010

A thrilling game with the result in doubt until the dying minutes.  With two evenly matched sides, lying third and fifth in the table, it was always going to be a tight encounter. On the day Beverley RUFC took their chances better and just about deserved the win.  In the gloomy light and on a heavy pitch this might have been expected to be a forward slog in the mud. …

Beverley Ready for the Visit of Middlesbrough

January 28, 2010

Beverley RUFC entertain Middlesbrough RUFC at Beaver Park this Saturday in the National League 3 fixture (kick-off 2.15 p.m. In the corresponding fixture at Middlesbrough last October the Beavers lost narrowly 19-12 but felt very hard done by since they had the best of the game and but for a very questionable decision by an otherwise excellent referee, they would have won. They will clearly be out for revenge this…


Sheffield Tigers Vs Beverley RUFC

January 25, 2010

Looking anything but a side that had not played for six weeks Beverley RUFC cruised to a comfortable victory over a disappointing Sheffield Tigers to maintain their position in the upper half of League Three North.  Sheffield were a pale shadow of the side that had played so impressively earlier in the season at Beaver Park and for much of the game Beverley RUFC needed merely to sit back and…

December 6, 2009

West Hartlepool  5    Beverley RUFC  39 Beverley RUFC ended the first half of the league season in fine style with a comprehensive victory over bottom placed West Hartlepool.  This fixture in the past has often proved to be something of a banana skin for Beverley RUFC.  Not this time. They played some scintillating rugby and romped home to move up to sixth in the table.  Some of their rugby here…

Beverley RUFC Vs Rossendale

November 22, 2009

Some fine enterprising rugby by Beverley RUFC brought them a comfortable victory and lifted them above their opponents in the table.  Overall the game was by no means a classic but some of Beverley RUFC’s play was as good as we have seen all season Beating Rossendale 37 – 10.  Not since the opening matches have they moved the ball so crisply and menacingly as they did here and Rossendale…

Penrith and Beverley RUFC battled out a 19 – 19 draw on Saturday in a thrilling match and a grandstand finish.  Beverley looked to have won it with a try in the dying seconds but the conversion from in front of the posts went agonisingly wide leaving the game ending in a draw.  Taking the afternoon as a whole it was probably a fair result.  Both teams had contributed to…

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…


Chester Vs Beverley RUFC

September 21, 2009

Chester 28 Beverley RFC 18 After two fine victories to get their season going this was a rather disappointing performance by Beverley who looked a shadow of the side that had played such sparkling rugby in their previous two games.  They were not helped by early injuries to Junior Tupai and Goran Jelencic but they had a strangely pedestrian look about them and nearly all the good rugby came from…
