Yarnbury are losing their way

Wharfedale Observer: Ian Maycock wins a line-out for Yarnbury Ian Maycock wins a line-out for Yarnbury

Yarnbury 3 Hullensians 29

Just two weeks after leading the Yorkshire Division Two table Yarnbury have dropped to fifth after a run of three defeats in a row.

Yarnbury had to mix up their back line again due to injuries and unavailability as they looked to get their game back on track.

Captain Oliver Cashman was placed out of position at centre to fill a gap caused by injuries.

Graham Maycock was given a start on the right wing after impressibg as a substitute in the defeat at Bradford Salem.

The first ten minutes saw both sides sparing in the middle of the Wnger Jack Snowden was hauled down short of the line and more Hullensians pressure saw them squander two easy penalties because they did not have a regular goal kicker.

At the end of the first quarter winger John Wilson opened the scoring from a five-metre scrum with a quick move on the blind side Immediately Yarnbury pressed the Hull line but only had a penalty from Dave Jones to show for some for some sustained pressure .

They had two good try-scoring opportunities but lacked the coolness to finish their moves.

The second half began with Yarnbury defending.

Unfortunately, their resistance cracked after 50 minutes for winger John Wilson to extend the Hull lead down the blindside with a 20-etre run to the line Again the conversion was missed leaving Yarnbury well in contention.

Yarnbury wing forward James Barrett had a good run in the middle of the field but again the ball was dropped to halt progress.

Hullensians weren’t as careless. Second row Peter Osborne raced in from close range and influential back row Jason Conroy converted with his first kick of the match to put his side in control.

Yarnbury’s forward worked hard but they could not stem the tide.

The visitors extended their lead with a try from their powerful prop Mario Ellison.

Yarnbury’s misery was complete when Chris Smith scored a converted try from the last play after spinning out of a tackle.
