Last updated at 11:26, Monday, 18 March 2013
TYNEDALE eased their relegation fears with a clinical 10-try demolition of basement club Cambridge.
Hero of the day was flanker Matthew Charters, who picked up the man of the match award in a courageous display following the death of his brother Andrew in a motorcycle accident last week. Charters scored one of the tries in a fine all-round team performance
Tynedale took the lead through skipper Hamish Smales on five minutes,
and they were 31-0 up by half time, with the four try bonus point
already in the bag.
Lock Joe Robinson touched down on 13 minutes, before Charters crossed
two minutes later, both tries converted by Matty Outson.
Cambridge's centre Albert Portsmouth was sin binned on the half hour, allowing Tynedale to add
further tries through hooker David Cherry and scrum half Harry Peck
before the break, both converted by Outson.
One way traffic continued after the break, with flanker Sam Reynolds
going over before Outson scored twice in three minutes to clock up
Tynedale’s half century.
Winger Peter Moralee added number nine, before Cambridge got on the
scoresheet through Portsmouth, fly half Elliot Bale converting.
Peck grabbed Tynedale’s 10th with six minutes left, before Portsmouth
had the last word, Bale again converting.
