Waterloo Come Out On Top At The Arena

A frustrating day for the Sharks as Firwood Waterloo register their first win of the season

DMP Sharks welcomed Firwood Waterloo to the Northern Echo Arena looking to put right the previous fixtures result of Tyrrell’s Premier 15 first ever 0-0 draw during storm Brian earlier in the year.

Sharks where missing five players away on international duty but filled their squad with youth and exciting talent from the local area. La Toya Mason captained the side from the fly half jersey having recovered from the injury she picked up against Richmond the week before.

The game started with Sharks hooker Elle Bloor refreshed from a weekend off for the Richmond game continuing her strong ball carrying for Sharks, exposing weaknesses in Firwoods defensive line and charging through the middle to provide strong attacking ball.

Firwood responding pinning Sharks in their 22, Sharks defence held good keeping the strong runners from Firwood at bay, and away from the try line. After 10 minutes of this pressure L.T Mason was shown a yellow card for a tip tackle that the referee deemed had just gone above the horizontal. Sharks continued to defend their 22 down to 14 players and missing their captain, they continued to absorb the pressure for a further five minutes until Firwoods Jenkins managed to make it across the white wash, Scott failed to convert the try.

0-5

Macdonald continued her good form from the restarts for Sharks putting Firwood under pressure and forcing a turn over, this allowed Sharks to finally have a chance to play with the ball after 15 minutes of defence. Within 3 minutes of having the ball Sharks scrum half Davidson identified a great running line from Macdonald and put her through a lovely gap in Firwoods defence, Macdonald then produced fantastic footwork to beat two of Firwoods defenders to run it into the corner. Mason filed to convert the try.

5-5

Firwood reapplied the pressure onto Sharks from the restart pushing into their 22 and using their forward pack to slowly eat up the metres. Poor discipline from Sharks led to a penalty being awarded to Firwood in front of the post’s Scott took the opportunity to kick and take the 3 points.

5-8

Sharks again used Macdonald to put Firwood under pressure from the restart, forcing another turn over. Sharks used the ball well and put Woosey into a one on one situation with their fullback, Woosey stepped and the fullback was wrong footed leading to a high tackle and Woosey falling short of the white wash. The referee yellow carded Firwoods fullback Delany for the high tackle. Sharks took advantage of Firwood being a player down and put Macdonald over in the corner again to score her second try of the match, Mason failed to convert the try.

10-8

In the second half both teams used their forward packs to carry and move up the pitch only for defences to hold strong and deny each team scoring opportunities. Sharks defence was the first to crack allowing Firwood to score on the 64 minute through replacement backrow Beckett, Scott converted the try making the score 15-10 with 15 minutes left on the clock.

10-15

Sharks upped the tempo in the last 10 minutes but Firwood kept them pinned back in their own 22 with Mason kicking to touch on several occasions only for Firwood to run it back into Sharks 22. Poor discipline on the 80th minute saw Firwood take the option to kick a penalty in front of the posts and deny Sharks the losing bonus point.

Full time score- 10-18
