Tynedale 27, Wharfedale 40 IT'S starting to look like a long hard season for Tynedale 1st XV as a heavy home defeat at the hands of Wharfedale on Saturday sent them into the National Division One relegation zone.
Tynedale were well below strength, due to injuries and Newcastle Falcons calls, but held their own until half time.
But once again they ran out of steam badly in the second half, as the Wharfedale forwards took control,
Tynedale started superbly, with a converted try by Jack Harrison with less than a minute on the clock, and winger Dan Rundle added another on nine minutes for 14-0.
Gavin Beasley landed both conversions, as well as scoring a try he converted himself after Wharfedale had come back with two tries - one converted - and a penalty.
The Yorkshire’s third try came on 37 minutes, but Beasley’s penalty made it 24-22 at the break.
It was one way traffic in the second half, as Wharfedale's powerful pack forced Tynedale to concede a string of penalties six of which were converted.
Tynedale’s only reply was a lone penalty by Kristian Borthwick, on for the injured Gavin Beasley.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
