Re: [buncranaboy] Where are you going - where did you go? RUGBY UNION or Reply Privately

Saturday 21st April 2012
Wath-upon-Dearne 19 Bradford Salem 17 (HT 9-14)
Yorkshire Two
Free admission
Programme 1 (24pp, excellent for this level of rugby union)
Attendance 300 (h/c)

The best season in Wath's history took another dramatic twist as they secured victory over promotion rivals Bradford Salem thanks to a strong late surge. Wath, to play Wells at Twickenham in a fortnight in the Senior Vase Final, trailed 17-9 going into the last 10 minutes and looked odds-on losers. But in the 72nd minute their scrum-half scored a try in the corner, the full-back converted superbly from the touchline, and the latter kicked a decisive penalty awarded in front of the posts with a minute of normal time remaining. Wath now need to win one of their outstanding two league games (both away) to pip Salem to promotion and go up alongside champions and local rivals Barnsley. Wath, for whom defeat by Salem would have ended promotion hopes, earned a place in Yorkshire Two only last season by taking the Yorkshire Three title.

The hosts led with an eighth minute penalty, but Salem, very strong in the forwards, replied with converted close-range tries in the 19th and 38th minutes. Wath, who never looked like crossing in the first half, added two more penalties through their full-back's boot to trail 14-9 at the break. Salem edged further clear with a 48th-minute penalty before Wath provided that thrilling finish to a fairly dull, though undoubtedly tense, forwards-dominated encounter.

Wath's Moor Road ground is no great shakes. It's part of a public park, which also features a cricket square and a bowling green. It lacks both cover and floodlights. Each side is roped off. Fringed by trees, it has a pleasantly rural feel, which is a little surprising because the former coal mining communities in the Dearne Valley are as grim as Yorkshire gets. The clubhouse is a two-minute walk across the park.
