Crosfields at Home

 

Peterlee Pumas V Crosfields

The Warrington based outfit brought a good crowd to the Pumas also chasing their first win of the season sat just above the home side on 1 point earned through a draw with Coventry.

Peterlee fielding their strongest side of the season so far but still missing Hooker James Daniels, Standoff Ollie O’mara and Centre George Manser from the previous week’s game through injury or unavailability started brightly and had some good ball close to the Crosfields line but were unable to cross.

The first quarter was well balance but Peterlee despite having a good possession, squandered it early in the tackle count all too often and gave the visitors good field position to attack which they capitalised on building up a 42 0 lead until soccer convert Phil Howe got on the end of a Pumas well executed shift wide and went in at the corner from 30 meters out, Paul Flynn converted the difficult conversion kick to make the half time score 42-6 to Crosfields.

Peterlee had plenty of ball in this game but a woeful 33% completion rate cost them dear in the second half also and too many good attacking positions were squandered early in the tackle count which frustrated all who could see an improving side.   A lot down to being an inexperienced youthful side it has to be said and another harsh less learned as the visitors build their lead up to 74 and outstanding solo effort from half way saw Standoff Jack Adamson playing with a ruptured rotator cuff chipped the Crosfields defensive line, recovered the ball the other side of the line and went over to score on the right, again converted by Flynn.

The attack was seen to be getting better this week and the mistakes came from trying to play rugby it has to be said and must be encouraged but more focus on ball security needs to heavily considered by the team and although defensive organisation needs to be worked on also, more often than not it was the counter attack that was catching the home side out.

Next week home to League Leaders Pilkington Recs and the North East side host Durham Demons, bot KO at 14:30 at Helford Road.

Meanwhile two Pumas junior sides were in action with the under 14s travelling to Shildon to play Durham Tigers winning 18-52 and the 12s travelling to Catterick to take on North Yorkshire winning also.
