A need for points for Tynedale
Published at 11:40, Thursday, 06 February 2014
TYNEDALE take their fight for survival to Leicestershire on Sunday, when they visit Loughborough Students.
They will be desperate to return from the East Midlands with something, for after this, their next four opponents are all in the top five in the table.
The Students have won only one of their last six games, a 28-20 home success over Worthing Raiders.
Their disciplinary record is not good, as they top the table of yellow cards with 22 so far. Four of these – including three in the last 10 minutes – came in the 31-12 home defeat to leaders, Doncaster Knights on Saturday.
They have won five and lost five at home, scoring 31 tries and conceding 35 tries in the process.
Their leading try scorer is ex-Moseley back Jack Pons, on 11.
