PUMAS AWAY TO BLACKBROOK

The Pumas bus was late starting off on the long 3 hour
trip to Blackbrook (St Helens) a hotbed of Rugby League so arriving jus half an
hour before kick off put the Pumas on the back foot straight away against one
of the best Amateur Rugby teams in the Country. Peterlee travelled in
good spirit however, encouraged with the huge improvements made in speed, skill
endurance and game play and also spurred on with the memory of having their
best performance of season when they played Blackbrook at home and held them
two a 26 4 defeat which against a team who lost by 2 points in the challenge
cup to York City Knights opposition was some going. With an even younger
than usual side as 5 pack members from the previous week were rested however
and the short warm up the Pumas need to forget the first 25 minutes ,
Blackbrook capitalized on this and it was 15 minutes before Peterlee even
touched the ball by which time a good 30 point gap had opened up. Finally
Peterlee managed to steady the ship stem the flow of attack from black
book. A lot of work has been done on getting the outside edge
of the defense sorted and it started to click and frustrate the Brook attack
forcing them back inside to the big Pumas pack which forced the home side to
start kicking on the last instead of having so many overlaps out wide as
much. The Pumas had some good attacks also close to the line
but the last pass always seemed to be not quite there but Peterlee competed
well in the last 3 quarters of the game. A good breakaway 60 meter try
from 17 year old Boawe Ranking saw Peterlee have the last say in the first half
and then a lot more competitive second half with plenty of scoring
chances. A good dummy and step through the line from 30 out from
Jack Adamson to score too were highlights from the Pumas and kept the
Blackbrook attack to a much slower rate than in the first half. Lots to
take into the Pumas final game at Home on the 21st September to
Hindley when the Peterlee side will become the first ever North East side to
complete a National Conference League season. Full time score Blackbrook
70 Peterlee 10, Man of the match Paul Flynn. Peterlee are looking to have
a big crowd with the entire junior section and all members down for a family
day and give the young Pumas support as they chase that all elusive first win.

Peterlee have already started building for next season,
looking to strengthen the management committee, volunteers and coaches as well
looking for sponsors for match days and teams. If you are interested

. Also the Pumas will be starting a get back into being active from the
25th September as well as Touch Rugby and masters rugby all targeted
and getting people (especially those over the 40 years of age mark) more active
with fun activities including fun rugby (non contact) games and also various
running activities depending on the individual's needs.
