A bad day at the office for me. I’ve always backed Billingham but
I thought heavy ground might favour Gate.
Wirral win away at Carlisle,Lymm show great form at Ilkley and
Alnwick almost win away at Macclesfield.
I think my reign at top may of league may be over.

Billingham travelled down the A19 to unbeaten rivals Harrogate this afternoon full of confidence following 8 successive wins.


Harrogate were also full of confidence with 6 unbeaten games under their belt. It was touch and go to whether the game was to go ahead following this weeks downpours flooding part of Yorkshire. Compliments to Harrogate's ground staff, they did just enough to get the game on.

Harrogate started on the front foot. Their BIG pack dominating early phases. It was that BIG pack that set a platform for their first and the games opening score. Its not often I have said that Billingham went back over in a scrum, in fact i cant recall a time they have for a number of seasons. Unfortunately today was the day where Harrogate got the upper hand. An early scrum on the 5 metre line following a held up score, an 8 pick up, offload to 9 who drew in the advancing Matt Kirby for their winger to score. Conversion missed

From the resulting kick off Billingham started strongly. Strong defence from McAlorum and Whinn saw a turnover over ball. Foley quickly released the ball to Pete Evans who in turn found Wilson who released fleet footed Husband to score in the corner for Billinghams first of the game. Conversion missed.

Billingham kept the momemtum going and quickly found themselves in Harrogates half. Breaks by Myers and Jackson up the middle allowed Kirby to step a couple of forwards before Harrogate were penalised for lying on the ball. Unfortunately whilst the kick was being placed, elder Evans, Joe was being carried off and was seen later with a heavily strapped knee. Many thought without his defensive strengths it might give Gate the advantage. Kirby stepped inside to 13 and the experienced Hopley emerged at 14.


Peter Evans made no mistake with the resulting penalty to take at 5-8 lead at the 33 minute mark.

Harrogate did have the last word of the first half with their pack. A line-out from Billinghams 5 metre, no competition from Billingham (slightly misjudged) allowed their second row to barrell over the line. Conversion kicked.

Half time: 12- 8

The teams emerged from under the club house with their cleverly worked changing rooms to start the second half. Billingham ran from the changing rooms with energy ready to take battle. Obviously not phased by the score card.

Billingham were quickly on the front foot when Luke Wilson found a gap up the middle of the Gate centre pairing, quickly offloaded to Nathan Myers who swatted away 2 would be tacklers before finding Anth Jackson who made a further 10 metres before being tackled. Quick ball by Foley to skipper Evans who gave what can be only described as a delightful cross field kick into the waiting Hopleys arms who scampered into the corner evading the despairing Harrogate defence. Conversion missed. 12-13

With the scoreboard favouring Billingham it re-energised the youthful outfit and they were once again making dents in Gates big defence. Sunley, Foulds, Clark and Burns atthe forefront of taking the ball forward.It was then once the ball was in the hands of Wilson who spotted another gap finding Husband that Gate decided to slow things down by laying on the ball in their own 22. Referee called their 6 over and showed the yellow card. Sensibly skipper pointed for the posts. Penalty kicked 12- 16

Harrogate again kicked off. Billinghams defence was stern. The subs had come on. Spoors for Clark and Walton for the bandaged McAlorum. Walton as usual was throwing himself about. His energy was much welcomed to a tiring Billingham defence, However it was one too many 'chop' tackles that seen his appearance only last 7 minutes when he had to be replaced by McAlorum much to the dismay of the youngster.

The play had been stopped. A scrum set. Jackson fielded quick ball to Evans who played Wilson through the middle. Foley found Whinn to burst another whole in the tiring defence of Gate. More phases from Burns, Sunley and Spoors allowed Peter Evans to show off his skills by knocking over a 35 metre drop goal which caught all but Peter by surprise!.

The game drawing to a close saw a sour note in what was a highly fought game with a Gate player shown the red card for a verbal attack on the referee.

Still there was time on the clock... Billingham had to hold out. Harrogate were now on the attack. Billingham had other ideas. Turnover ball was won, switch of play by Foley found Wilson who drew his defender and found Kirby, an attempted kick through by Kirby was quickly foiled by Gate but the ball landed in Myers hands who barrelled 10 metres up the pitch. With the calls of time sir, time sir from the Billingham player.... a nod by the referee Foley span the ball to Evans who booted the ball (on the road) with pure delight and relief.

A fab 12-19 win.

We came, we fought and we conquered.

Well done to the referee who was very good in difficult conditions (2 unbeaten sides)

Thank you to all the travelling support. You were really that extra man who got the boys over that line.

We go again next week vs Carlisle at home.

Harrogates take on the game.

Harrogate’s run of 19 straight victories came to an end today in an excellent match which was a great advertisement for Level 5 rugby.
Their early scrum dominance seemed to indicate another win but the game became more open. This made it a great spectacle but it also suited the talented Billingham backs, skilfully orchestrated by their stand-off, Pete Evans

Tight head prop, Connor Ward made a very welcome return to Harrogate and linked up well with front row colleagues Dom Musetti and Steve MayHuckleberry. Powerful Harrogate scrummaging led to Billingham conceding early penalties and Harrogate set up a driving maul from an attacking line-out. Billingham were again penalised for coming in at the side and another driving maul took the ball over the line but it was held up. Quick ball from the ensuing scrum led to Oli Rossillo dancing over for the opening score. Billingham soon drew level by counter attacking from a Harrogate clearance kick. Full back, Elliott Husband fielded it from deep to set up an attack and he also made the extra man at the end of the move to score in the corner.


Further Harrogate attacks followed but Billingham’s defence kept them out and, when Harrogate were penalised, a huge Evans kick gave them an attacking line-out. However, Martin Dodds stole the ball and Harrogate cleared. Harrogate then won what seemed to be a great turnover but they were penalised and Evan’s kick put Billingham 5-8 ahead.


Another Dodds line-out steal led to Harrogate’s next try from rampaging Sam Brady and David Doherty’s conversion made it 12-8. Brady’s 2nd row partner, Brandon Hannam featured strongly in defence and attack and, In the last move of the half, a thunderous Tim Heaton tackle forced Billingham to knock on. Billingham’s scrum was again penalised and Harrogate cleared.

More Billingham attacks opened the second half, Harrogate were penalised at a scrum and conceded a further 10 metres for verbals. The next significant penalty was conceded by Billingham when they went offside after a Merc Mercer midfield break. However, Billingham regained possession and another astute Evans kick led to a try from Martin Hopley.

Both sets of defences were fully tested for the remainder of the match and, although no more tries were scored, it was hugely entertaining, high quality rugby. Evans kicked another penalty when Harrogate’s defence went offside and, shortly afterwards, dropped a goal to put the final nail in Harrogate’s coffin. With minutes remaining, Harrogate’s substitute winger, Luke Edwards was red carded.
