pspan style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"On a gloriously sunny afternoon, Broadstreet RFC ran in seven equally glorious tries against Shropshire visitors strongNewport (Salop) RFC/strong; so boosting the annual Myton Hospice fund-raising FazFest Memorial Day, held in fond memory of one of our best, former Club player, official and inspiration, Andy ‘Fazza’ Farrington. With second, third and Colts teams also playing at home, it provided the busy rugby atmosphere that the great man loved so much writes strongBob Harcourt/strong.nbsp; Having lost the away fixture 25 – 7; played on a cold, wet and muddy day at the wind swept strongOld Showground, Forton Road/strong, there was no indication of the try-fest to come. Had ‘Street not spent the first quarter giving away penalties and losing territory, the outcome could well have49- 0 racked up through tries from strongNick Thatcher/strong, strongJames Otutaha/strong, strongDanny Richards/strong, strongChris Zutic/strong, strongJeff Gregson/strong, strongPete Bicknell/strong and strongAdam Walsh/strong - six converted by strongDanny Richards/strong and the last one by strongAdam Walsh/strong.nbsp; ‘Street, eager to run everything, allowed Newport frequent periods in attack as a consequence and only determined defence kept their opponents score at zero.nbsp; (A bit better strategy will be required for the strongSutton Coldfield/strong game, me thinks!) Three goals in the second quarter; on 20, 30 and 38 minutes gave ‘Street a half-time lead of 21 – 0 and a platform from which to enter into the spirit of the day to run in four long distance tries after the break./spannbsp;/p

pspan style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"A penalty award to ‘Street after 20 minutes,nbsp; 15 metres out, in front of the posts, looked like an easy three point penalty in the offing, but strong‘Captain Cheeky’/strong strongNick Thatcher/strong had another idea – tap and go, beat three defenders and touch down under the posts. strong7 – 0./strong Just before the half hour mark, after just failing to hang on to a try-scoring pass under the shadow of Newport’s posts minutes earlier, centre strongJames Otutaha/strong made no mistake this time when fly-half strongDanny Richards,/strong after a jinxing run by winger strongJeff Gregson,/strong took the latter’s off-load pass to break the defence line; popped the ball up out of the tackle to his neighbour, inside centre strongOtutaha,/strong who bounced off tacklers on his way to the posts. nbsp;strong14 – 0.nbsp; /strongThat man strongRichards /stronghad the last say of the half, with just two minutes to the break, when he finished off a great handling move from wide right in the ‘Street half with a try to theleft of Newport’s posts.nbsp; Involving, strongBicknell, Walsh, Otutaha/strong and full back strongMike Rust/strong in the build-up, strongHalf Time: 21 – 0./strong/spannbsp;/p

pspan style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"After just 3 minutes of resumption, tearaway back row duo of strongBeau Carney/strong and strongChris Zutic/strong combined to set the latter up for the touchdown, after a well hustled ruck turnover by strongCarney/strong. nbsp;strong28 – 0.nbsp; Newport /strongspent some time in ‘Street’s 22 and when a score seemed likely the boys in red broke out from turnover possession and galloped to the shadow of Newport’s posts where lock strongChris Wood’s/strong off load pass to supporting prop, strongPaul Hurst/strong, just failed to stick with the line begging. (Props never seem to get the glory!).nbsp; A similar sweeping move from try-line to try-line, started with strongOtutaha’s /strongrelieving kick; followed up with a chase and collection by strongBeau Carney/strong who, making ground, perfectly timed a pass for the supporting strongJeff Gregson, /strongwhereupon the pacy winger outstripped the cover to score under the sticks. nbsp;The seventh and final try was perhaps the finest, with strongOtutaha, Carney, Gregson, Rust/strong and strongWalsh/strong all handling in a move starting deep in ‘Street’s half, providing hard-working outside centre, strongAdam/strong strongWalsh/strong, with a well-deserved try.nbsp; Whilst the threequarters bagged all but one of the tries, one has to congratulate the forwards for an outstanding collective performance in providing a wealth of quick ball for their back-line./span/p

pspan style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"nbsp;span style="color: #008000;"strongBut, let us not get carried away. We needed a performance like this to mathematically ensure safety from relegation. Next week we are away to promotion seeking table-toppers, Sutton Coldfield. nbsp;Smart rugby doesn’t always equal entertaining rugby. There have been times throughout this season when playing for territory or closing down a game has been overlooked in favour of run-from-anywhere rugby, resulting in games and points being lost. A smart balance, to ensuring consistency, is required, should we wish to compete at the top. nbsp;/strong/span/spanspan style="color: #008000;"strongspan style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"(Remember, the Scunthorpe game - a loose performance after a 64 – 0 win over Derby the previous match?!)/span /strong /span/p
