Caldy Ravens v. The Cornish Pirates

This was the first match between these teams and following Caldy’s win over Ampthill the previous week, a difficult game was expected. Also for this game, Will Trewin was making his first appearance in a Pirates’ shirt. The Pirates started with the wind at their backs but they could not take advantage of it. It was a war of attrition for the best part of the first half and a number of Pirates’ chances were wasted though a high number of penalties. However, after 18 minutes Arthur Relton intercepted a pass and scored the first try, which was converted by Harry Bazelgette. The Ravens attacked strongly but The Pirates defence was solid and gradually they started to gain territory and Caldy were pinned in their 22, a result of which was a series of penalties given away and a yellow card for their Nr. 8, but unfortunately The Pirates could not take advantage on this and the half finished with the score 0-7.

In the second half, Caldy had the advantage of the wind and soon they started to put pressure on The Pirates. Following a penalty given away by The Pirates, Caldy put a perfect kick into the corner and from the 5-metre line-out, they drove over the line for a converted try. 47 minutes on the clock and the score 7-7, Caldy now had the bit between their teeth and saw their chance of getting the next score. Although they built up pressure, this did not last and once again it was The Pirates who started to command the game, and in the 55th minute, a perfect line-out sent the ball directly to Tommy Wyatt who destroyed the Caldy defence with his speed and strength, scoring The Pirates’ second try. It seemed now that this was a game The Pirates would win although the score was only 7-12. However, from a strong scrum The Pirates won a penalty, which was kicked to the corner, and after a number of ‘pick an go’ moves, the ball was sent wide and Relton scored his second try, which was converted by Bazelgette. And then, with the clock approaching the 80 minutes, Seb Nagle-Taylor took a quick penalty kick and knocking aside two defenders, scored the bonus point try, which was converted by Carwyn Penny. Final score: Caldy Ravens 7, The Cornish Pirates 26.
