MarpleRUFC - Border Life

22 The referee signals the end of the match. Victory to the home side, with a score of 14 - 7.
21Nice breakthrough by Brice Jézéquel who gets low and charges. He cannons into Nick Errick like a stampeding bull, but Nick Errick wraps him up and manages to bring him down. Looks like we finally know what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object.
20Thomas Norman with the kick from halfway.. Liam Kay has got his positioning all wrong and Brice Jézéquel takes an easy catch. Border Life will be on the front foot here.
18 A beautiful kick by Bogdan Albu, just managed to bring it back for another two on the board.
17 Inside Border Life's 22, Jonathan Hinkley sees Perry Forster running flat out into a gap and delivers a deft pass. Simple try there. Border Life's defense needs to pay more attention when they are backed up against their try line like that.
16At the ruck, the MarpleRUFC back rower is burrowing like a demented mole, the ball comes back safely on the MarpleRUFC side.
15Liam Kay sets off upfield. He easily hands off the weak tackles of Rune Nordin, then Gregor Donnelly. The fullback is in his way, so he offloads to Mike Dougal who is running in support. The pass is badly judged though, and goes behind the man. A lucky escape for Border Life there!
14Turnover. MarpleRUFC now has possession and the backs are ready for a new attack.
13The scrum half sends the ball out out to Jay Cronk, who takes it well and hands off Bogdan Albu. He manages another 5 metres or so before Quinn Donnelly brings him down.
12Good lineout for Border Life. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Reece Knowles wins the ball in the air.
11Ernie Riggs smashes through Iain Blunden's tackle. He's slowed down just enough though, and Luke Womersley finishes the job.
10MarpleRUFC have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
9MarpleRUFC's scrum half dummies to the open-side before switching directions and taking the ball himself. Rory Simpson wasn't fooled for a second, and Jonathan Hinkley gets no where.
8At the ruck, that's a devastating clean out. It's perfect attacking ball for the MarpleRUFC half back.
7Jonathan Hinkley gets the ball from the ruck and throws a quick pass to Dylan Waite. He tries a quick flick pass to Perry Forster, but the ball goes wildly astray.
6That's a good steady scrum and a good feed by MarpleRUFC.
5Scrum. Border Life with the put-in. The ball goes in, and the forwards begin to push. The scrum is starting to turn. That's some great work, especially by the MarpleRUFC tighthead. It's gone past 90 degrees! Great work by MarpleRUFC, who now get the put-in at the next scrum.
4MarpleRUFC can't seem to get their act together as Dylan Waite drops Jonathan Hinkley's pass before their attack even has a chance to get going.
3Good lineout for MarpleRUFC. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Liam Kay wins the ball in the air.
2Reece Knowles is running down the touchline. He seems to be unmarked, but Anthony Dunbar is there to pounce.
1Oooh! That's not a good kick from Bogdan Albu, i'm not sure it will make it to the ten meter line..
The crowd here at MarpleRUFC stadium hold their breath.. Reece Knowles takes the ball just inches over the ten meter mark. Bogdan Albu got away with that one after all!

There's lots of tired players going into extra-time. With scores all level at 7 - 7 it's all to play for!
80MarpleRUFC's scrum half is smashed by Rory Simpson. That run was so telegraphed that the postal service want to charge him for it!

75MarpleRUFC cannon into the ruck, smashing the Border Life players off the ball, turnover to MarpleRUFC.
74MarpleRUFC are a little lax around the ruck, so Rory Simpson decides to take it himself. He gets by Jonathan Hinkley before offloading to Gregor Donnelly, but Nick Errick manages to stop Border Life's flanker.
73Good lineout for Border Life. The hooker finds his man perfectly, and Reece Knowles wins the ball in the air.
72MarpleRUFC want to spread the play, so Jonathan Hinkley passes to Ernie Riggs who flicks the ball on to Jim Barber. The Border Life cover has numbered up and Gregor Donnelly makes a solid tackle.
71Ruck. MarpleRUFC get the ball from that one and their scrumhalf can be heard frantically giving his instructions for a new attack.
70MarpleRUFC's flanker, Nick Errick, sets off on a charge. He shrugs off the tackles of Gregor Donnelly and Luke Womersley but it's all for nothing when he passes to Bogdan Albu who fails to hold on to the ball.
69MarpleRUFC have retained possession as their players were quick and picked up the loose ball. They'll be able to attack again
68Oh no! There is chaos on the field as the players start a punch up after a high tackle by Rory Simpson on Jonathan Hinkley. The fans jeer in unison, but the referee waves play on.
67It's a ruck, Border Life look like they have secured the ball, but on the far side from the ref a MarpleRUFC hand has flicked the ball back! The Border Life scrum half throws his arms up in despair, but the ref signals play on.

59Rory Simpson passes to Rune Nordin, but, despite his recent involvement in the local version of Dancing with the Stars, he doesn't have the silky smooth moves necessary to outstep Anthony Dunbar.
58There are players smashing into this ruck from both sides.. it is a real contest for the ball.
Eventually the Border Life players gain the upper hand and the ball emerges slowly on their side.
57A short pass from Rory Simpson to Emilian Şolea opens up some space. The fly half runs for a gap, but seeing the defence closing in passes to Victor Chilavert who sadly drops the ball.

49The MarpleRUFC half backs pair up nicely with a deft little pass from Jonathan Hinkley to Baptiste Barraud, who then powers through the tackle of Emilian Şolea. He's in space, and sets off up the field. He's sprinting for the corner! It looks like he's going to make it, but with an impressive burst of speed, Emilian Şolea is sprinting back to cover. He dives depairingly and just manages a tap tackle that stops Baptiste Barraud 5 metres short of the try line! The rest of Border Life's defence gets there and a ruck is formed.
48It's a scrum to MarpleRUFC. It's wheeling around as the ball is fed in, but MarpleRUFC still win the ball.

17 Beautiful team try for MarpleRUFC! Jonathan Hinkley starts the move off with a quick pass to Liam Kay. There are dummy runners everywhere, and Border Life look lost out there. Liam Kay puts in a long pass to Perry Forster who takes the ball on for 10 metres before passing back inside to Mike Dougal who sprints for the line, diving over for a very satisfying 5 points. The bench are on their feet. Everyone enjoyed that try, except for Border Life of course!

9Ernie Riggs stumbles on a patch of uneven turf as he goes to pass the ball and Jonathan Hinkley has to reach down to try to take the ball on his shoelaces..
