The colts were in fine form at Morpeth on Saturday 5th February.
Although the score indicates that Morpeth were a weak side, nothing could be further from the truth, even at 27 nil down they kept coming at us until the final whistle and with out some really determined defence from Carlisle they would have had at least 2 tries.
A squad of twenty players travelled to the north east and this was beneficial, as we have been struggling with numbers for away games recently. Mathew Little stood in as captain for the injured Carl Robertson ,and did a sterling job, leading by example and scoring 3 tries.
The pack did a great job supplying the talented back line with quality ball throughout the game.
Outstanding players were T.McCullough (2nd row), A.Clarke (No 8),A .Neale (prop) in the forwards, and M.Little (centre) M.Fearon (fly half) in the backs.
The hard work in training over the last few weeks certainly showed as the lads got stronger as the game went on, but we will have to be more clinical with our finishing against Wigton next week.
M.Little – 3 tries;
M.Fearon – 1 try & 1 conversion;
M.Minet t- 1try
Morpeth 0 v Carlisle 27 pts
