Bedford Blues v. The Cornish Pirates

With Bedford’s surprising win away at Ealing the week-end before, everyone was expecting that this would be a tough match for the Pirates. Although Storm Eunice had gone, there was still a wet pitch and a strong wind. These conditions proved from the start that this would not be a high scoring match. The Blues were by and large the better team in the first half and in the 24th minute, they scored their first try. The conversion however went just wide of the posts – 5-0. There was nothing over this first half to raise the spirits of the good crown of supporters – both Bedford and the Pirates – and the half came to an end with the score still 5-0 to the Blues.

In the second half it was hoped with the Pirates playing down the infamous slope, they would take control of the game and come away with the win, but this hope received a set-back when Antonio Kiri Kiri was shown a yellow card for an offence, following which Bedford inside two minutes, scored their second try, with the conversion this time successful to bring the score to 12-0. The task was now more difficult for the Pirates, but with 51 minutes on the clock, the Pirates were awarded a penalty which Arwel Robson successfully kicked. But still in spite of the slope – and the wind at their backs – the Pirates could not add to their score. The Pirates also now substituted a number of players but with less than 10 minutes on the clock and the game seemingly slipping away from the Pirates, things started to change. On 73 minutes, Kiri Kiri was driven over the line for a converted try – 12-10 and now it seemed there was light at the end of the tunnel. Then on 78 minutes, another penalty for the Pirates and Robson was successful with the kick – 12-13. And in the last minute of the game, Josh Caulfield stole a Bedford line-out, Tom Kessel put up a high box kick which a Blues player lost forward. Kiri Kiri seized the ball, passed it to Shae Tucker, who in spite of being tackled on the line, scored a try, converted by Robson. Final score: Bedford Blues 12, The Cornish Pirates 20.
