Beavers Let Lead Slip But Earn Vital Bonus Point In Lymm

January 8, 2012

Despite a fierce crosswind this was a fast open game in which the result remained in the balance right to the end. Victory could have gone either way. Sadly for Beverley RUFC it did not go theirs and come the end of the season this narrow defeat could prove to have been crucial if they narrowly fail in their battle against relegation. If so it would be a pity. After…


Rob Smith Try Gives Beverley Vital Win Over Rossendale

December 4, 2011

What a difference a win makes. After a luckless few weeks with numerous injuries and withdrawals Beverley RUFC got themselves off the bottom of the table with a close but well deserved victory against second placed Rossendale at Beaver Park. The game never produced much quality rugby – not surprising given the strength of the raw wind that blew end to end all afternoon – but Beverley RUFC will not…


Beavers Fall Short As Worrall Sees Red

November 14, 2011

A rip-roaring game full of non stop rugby from both sides.  Quite how Beverley RUFC ended up losing it after almost totally dominating it was a mystery.  Even more baffling was how they failed to score a single try despite creating clear cut chances all afternoon. The midfield trio of Phil Duboulay, Junior Tupai and Sam Atiola were simply outstanding and this was probably the best the pack has played…


Beverley Battle Hard To Win At Beaver park

October 23, 2011

Not much quality rugby here but Beverley RUFC came out of it with the win they badly needed and a bonus point to go with it. For much of the game Beverley were outplayed and could hardly get their hands on the ball.  At 20-7 down early in the second half and penned in their own half they looked to be heading towards another defeat. But the game was completely…


A Great Success With More To Come: Beverley Literature Festival 2011

October 13, 2011

The first weekend of the Beverley Literature Festival saw queuing round the block for Val MacDermid and Mark Billingham; and the Beverley Treasure House was packed with children meeting authors, making stories and being spell-bound by performers at the children’s literature festival. On Thursday, Thomas Penn will be talking about his acclaimed, debut account of early Tudor history – it’s been admired by novelists (including Hilary Mantel) and historians alike. …


Beverley Well Beaten By Bradford In National 3 North

October 10, 2011

Good in patches but much of this game was rather messy and unmemorable.  Given Beverley RUFC’s parlous injury crisis the result was probably what could have been expected.  That they restricted Bradford to only two tries and a conversion in the second half was a credit to Beverley RUFC who had turned round 41-0 down after being heavily outplayed in the first half.  In fact the second half was a…

Injury Crisis: Beavers Travel To Chester With Ten Players Missing

September 30, 2011

Beverley RUFC’s season of woe continues as they face up to the most unbelievable injury crisis in memory. Last Saturday’s defeat by Lymm, not only cost them the points but also resulted in serious injuries to lock Matty Adams, flanker David Worrall and outside back Goran Jelencic. Other injuries incurred, although apparently less serious were to stand-off Phil Duboulay, scrum half Chris Infield and winger Rob Smith. Add to these…


Dismal Beavers Beaten By Morley

September 19, 2011

A hugely disappointing day.  Beverley RUFC never seem to do themselves justice at Morley but they seldom play quite as poorly as they did today.  They bore little resemblance to the side that finished so impressively last week against Penrith and the only surprise was that they did not concede a lot more than twenty six points. Morley played with exuberance and dash from start to finish while Beverley RUFC…
