Tynedale slump to defeat at Coventry
Last updated at 11:01, Monday, 04 February 2013
TWO tries from full back Chris Harris were not enough to prevent Tynedale crashing to a 29-19 defeat in a good game at Coventry.
After falling behind to a converted try early on, Harris struck twice in quick succession, Matty Outson converting both to put Tynedale 14-5 ahead.
Coventry came back with a penalty and a converted try to lead 17-14 at the interval.
They stretched their lead with another converted try early in the second half, before man of the match Sam Reynolds brought Tynedale back into it at 24-19.
Coventry scored again, but close to the end, Tynedale had a penalty which would have earned them a losing bonus point. However, they wanted two, and kicked to touch in the hope of a fourth try.
Alas the line out came to nothing, and Tynedale finished empty handed.
