PUMAS AWAY TO KELLS

 

James Scott Earning another penalty

A tough trip to one of the strongest sides in the competition, the fixture list hasn’t been kind to Peterlee lining them up against the top teams in each of the first month of fixtures and it doesn’t get any harder than travelling to Whitehaven to play Kells. Four late cry offs due to injury from the Pumas,  Road works and traffic accidents conspired against the Pumas right from the start meaning a late arrival for most of the team and very little warm up time however a full squad travelled to give it their all. However the Pumas got off to a good start and were competing in the first half. Getting more ball in this game than in the previous two together the Pumas will be annoyed with themselves for lack of execution. The Pack were drawing penalties in the battle up front getting the repeat sets but the lack of experience at this level showed against a determined home defence.

Kells on the other hand were able to put attacks together and although not able to boss the middle as easily as they may have thought were able to shift the ball wide and play some really good rugby at pace on the fringes. The Pumas defence scrambled throughout the game and in particular winger Dan Alvey saved multiple tries covering from the wing and chasing across from his side to the other to stem the tide at times. The Pumas can be annoyed that they hadn’t built on the progress from the previous weeks and at best consolidated their performance at home. At Half time it was 34-0 similar to the previous game at home but I the second half Coach Martin Flynn had to go read the riot act after 4 or 5 soft tries had been conceded. This seemed to do the trick and the Pumas came back with more attacking play although not enough to change the result. Full time 86-0 to Kells, below par from the visitors but excellent Rugby from the home team. Next Game home to Underbank Rangers 23rd March, 14:30.

Meanwhile the Pumas under cup winning under 15’s travelled to Cramlington. Only able to field 12 of their squad due to registration issues the Pumas travelled to a Cramlington side with 27 to play and they used them all. The Peterlee Junior section have trained all through the winter and have grown in ever age group with more new players joining all the time so the light numbers of the 15s can bee seen as just an administration glitch which will be corrected for next time.   A closely contested game which must have been affected by fatigue from the Pumas late on as Cramlington would have been able to change players constantly to keep them fresh the visiting Peterlee side eventually ran out 12-14 winners. Excellent start to the season on the field, Peterlee Juniors will be playing most weeks from now until October.   If you are interested in playing, all ages, no experience necessary, contact 07903731901 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
