Print This Post Print This Post

On a sunny and calm April day Penrith met Carlisle at under 15 for the third consecutive year. With honours even at one victory a piece, the early exchanges between the teams looked promising as both Carlisle and Penrith looked to move the ball around the pitch.

The visit of the city side to Sandbach coincided with the presentation of the league championship trophy.  The runaway leaders had two games (including Carlisle) still be play! A large crowd had turned up, presumably in expectation of the icing being put on the cake!  They would be disappointed though, because the much changed Carlisle side […]

Percy Park were the visitors to Warwick road on Easter Saturday to play the Colts and brought the largest physical side the Colts will probably play this season.

Carlisle U14’s were away at Sunderland last Sunday and in a physical game won 39–19. For most of the first 20 minutes Sunderland had the visitors pegged back in their own half, with some determined driving, but some poor handling and knock-ons preventing them from capitalising on their advantage. Just after 20 minutes Carlisle had […]

Carlisle Colts were expecting a tough game against Billingham after their defeat to them earlier in the season, and were not disappointed. A game played in perfect conditions, produced an outstanding game of Colts rugby, and none of the spectators could have been dissatisfied with what they witnessed. Both teams gave a 100% and more, […]

Both Carlisle and Kirby Lonsdale under 15s fielded the bare minimum of 15 players in what proved to be an extremely close and entertaining game that included plenty of powerful forwards’ play and lots of exiting running by both sets of backs. Carlisle started brightly enough pushing the visitors back into their 22 for the […]

Carlisle Colts were a bit ring rusty going into their return league match against local rivals Wigton, having not played together for over a month. With the sticky conditions not favouring an expansive game of rugby, Wigtons bigger forwards had the upperhand in the scrums and the home side’s backs were struggling for ball all […]

Carlisle have distanced themselves from the relegation zone following a decisive win over Anselmians. However, they failed to secure a much needed bonus point from the Wirral based side.
 Prior to the match, Anselmians trailed Carlisle by just one point in the league, but a win for the Cumbrians has added another four points to […]
