Rugby: Gordano get better of Yatton rivals
PUBLISHED: 17:34 15 January 2019
Understrength Yatton under-15s began the second half of their season with a heavy defeat at Gordano.
With several regulars missing, a number of players had to play out of position against a strong side.
But the visitors battled throughout the match, showing plenty of grit.
Gordano’s defensive line speed put Yatton under a huge amount of pressure and their support play gave them tremendous momentum.
Yatton’s defence wasn’t tight enough at the breakdown and their own attacks lacked numbers.
The visitors had their best spells during the middle periods of each half and Josh Moss produced a great run from deep to take his side close to the line.
But once stopped in their tracks, Yatton saw the hosts recycle through the phases or kick downfield to score on the way to a resounding 67-3 margin of victory.
Yatton’s points came from a late drop goal, but they were little consolation.
