Print This Post Print This Post

Percy Park, vying for the automatic promotion spot with West Hartlepool (visitor’s to Warwick Road this week), were made to fight every inch of the way for their victory against Carlisle.

The day got off to a bad start with injury scares and unavailabilities and inevitably that meant some changes to the Carlisle XV for their first ever trip Wheatley Hills (Doncaster). Hills were early season visitors to Warwick Road and sneaked away with a result after snatching a try in the embers of added time. […]

Carlisle were looking to build on their impressive performance last week against Consett in this County Cup semi-final against Keswick. With heavy overnight rain turning the pitch into the consistency of heavy porridge, this was never going to be a pretty game. Carlisle started brightly enough, and after some driving forward play in the Keswick […]

Eventually, after a shy first half, Carlisle got into their stride and played some good rugby and were worthy of their win. Old Crocs came to Warwick Road on the back of a comprehensive home victory over neighbours Cleckheaton, who have been in the leading group at the top of the league for most of […]

This was a tense. entertaining encounter;  Carlisle had a 100% record against Old Brods, so it was always going to be a cut and thrust affair with the host side looking to redeem past defeats. Both sides opened with vigour, Carlisle conceding two early penalties to put pressure on themselves, being six nil down after […]
