Top of the Table Clash!

Despite the weather postponing two of Round 13's games, it didnt stop the top of the table clash between Met & Exeter...and it was everything we were hoping for! 

Match 1 Leeds Beckett vs Durham – Postponed

Match 2 Nottingham Trent vs Hartpury - Postponed

 

Match 1 Cardiff vs Bath 28-24

 

The two teams were neck and neck throughout the first half which saw Rhodi Wall get onto the scoresheet for Cardiff, which was shortly responded to by Bath, drawing 7-7 at the break.

 

With the second half underway, Bath were quick to score off a driving maul, threatening Cardiff with the prospect of relegation. 

 

With that in mind, Cardiff were quick to answer with two consecutive tries, sealing them the win with minutes to go.

Match 2 Top of the Table Clash - Exeter victorious.

 

On bitter Wednesday afternoon, Met went head to head vs Exeter in a bid to take the top spot. 

 

Met were keen to take the lead, whilst giving away two penalties, which would come back to haunt them as the final whistle drew near.

 

Trailing behind after the break, Exeter’s Pierre Thompson was quick to score alongside a clean conversion from Sam Morley, putting the home side back in the game.  

 

Remaining relatively neck and neck, Met pulled away 20-26 with 15 minutes to go, teasing a win if they could hold out for the last 10 minutes. 

 

With the clock ticking and the pressure on between the league top 2, Exeter’s Matt Johnson put Exeter back into the game, scoring in the 73rd minute and trailing by just the 1 point. 

Cool, calm and collected, Morley from the tee, secured Exeter their last minute win. 

 

Match 3 Loughborough vs Northumbria 12-19

 

A convincing first half performance from Northumbria saw the crowd believe the game was over at the half time whistle after Yaree Fantini’s second try put the away team up 19-0. 

 

Loughborough were quick to score a penalty try with the second half underway, keeping Northumbria on their toes. 

 

Shortly after Northumbria’s second yellow card of the game, Loughborough secured their second try from a great drive from the pack off a lineout, trailing just 12-19.

 

Failing to capitalise on their two try streak, the final whistle blew, giving Northumbria their 3rd win on the trot.
