EAL­ING TRAIL­FIND­ERS 44 YORK­SHIRE CARNEGIE 19 CHAM­PI­ONSHIP

TWO LATE tries from Eal­ing ended any hopes of a York­shire Carnegie fight­back af­ter a se­cond half in which the away-side dom­i­nated with­out mak­ing it count at a chilly Val­lis Way.

York­shire Carnegie head coach James Lowes said: “I’m mas­sively dis­ap­pointed, just too many in­con­sis­ten­cies.

“We got away with it against Bed­ford, but we get into good field po­si­tion, but it fails to pro­duce from that.

“Some of the han­dling er­rors were poor, es­pe­cially to­wards the end where we al­lowed them de­cent field po­si­tion and they are a good at­tack­ing side.

“If you put them on our line long enough they are go­ing to score.

Eal­ing led af­ter full-back Pete Ly­don sprinted around op­po­site num­ber Stephen McColl to slide over in the cor­ner.

Two min­utes later winger Will Har­ries sprinted in. Carnegie lock Jack Whet­ton went over for a penalty try with Eal­ing No 4 Har­ris Cas­son sin-binned for bring­ing down the maul.

A quickly taken penalty from an Eal­ing li­ne­out led to Rayn Smid bull­doz­ing over be­tween the posts, but winger Chris El­der shot through from 40m to score Carnegie’s se­cond try.

Ly­don added a penalty for the hosts and al­though Marc Thomas put Carnegie in good po­si­tions they failed to breach Eal­ing’s de­fence un­til a beau­ti­ful pass by Will Homer al­lowed El­der to score a car­bon copy of his ear­lier try.

The score­line was 27-19 with 15 min­utes to go and Grayson Hart freed Smid, who charged 25m to get the bonus-point try.

In the fi­nal play, a catch-drive was whipped out by Trail­find­ers re­place­ment back David RoblingLewis to Piers O’Conor, who stylishly squeezed through to score.
