Richmond secure win in Round 2 of the Tyrrell's Premier 15s

Richmond FC 27-10 DMP Sharks

The second weekend of the Tyrells Premier 15 saw Darlington Mowden Park Sharks travel to Richmond Old Athletic ground to take on old rivals Richmond RFC.

With large changes to the squad from last week’s Hartpury game due to injuries and unavailability, Kat Hobson was giving the captains arm band at fullback.

The game started with Richmond kicking to Sharks and pinning them back in their 22, the pressure applied by Richmond led to Sharks conceding a penalty in the breakdown which Richmond opted to kick for the post’s. Abigail Chamberlain stepped up to the tee and missed the penalty kick, the ball landing in Sharks hands who ran the ball out of their half.

Richmond turned the ball over and worked the phases back into Sharks 22, the conditions allowing for both sides to spread the ball wide Richmond optimised on this and put the ball through the hands allowing their number seven Fran Hall to run over in the corner for the first try of the game. Abigail Chamberlain stepped up to kick the conversion but missed. 0-5.

23 minutes into the game Hannah Morton Sharks number 12 landed awkwardly in a tackle and play stopped to allow the injury to be cared for, Morton left the field but has been given the all clear from doctors after. Beth Blacklock replaced Morton and continued to supply clean ball for sharks wingers and fullback to continue to run cutting lines getting Sharks across the gain line. All of this led to a driving maul in Richmond’s 22 with the forwards taking control the pack drove Heather Kerr over for the try. Beth Blacklock missed the conversion making the score 5-5.

Just before half time Richmond managed to secure their second try of the game but missed the conversation making the half time score 10-5 to Richmond.

Sharks made one replacement at half time with Alessandra Lewis replacing Erin Kelly at nine.

The second half saw Richmond take control of the game and their forwards dominate the driving maul leading to Laura Kapo securing a hat trick with only the last try being converted by Abigail Chamberlain.

With a minute left to play Sharks made good of their attacking play and strong back line, Claudia Macdonald skirted down the touch line with a lovely hand of to Richmond’s fullback to allow her to run in and secure the last points of the game with Beth Blacklock missing the conversion. The game finished 27-10 to Richmond, Sharks left feeling positive with the performance put in across the squad and ruing some missed opportunities which could have lead to a different result.
