Colts just lost 15 - 16 at home in a top-of-the-table clash against Darlington Mowden Park. Match report thanks to John Dean-Laws.
Northern, feeling half term and injuries, had only 17 players available (DMP had 23). DMP scored first after 10 minutes. In a tight game both sides scored penalties and at half time the score was 3 - 8.
Northern scored early into second half with Jake Mc going in out wide to make the score 8-8. Northern traded blow for blow with DMP and scored a breakaway try under the posts by Dan Scott to give a 15 - 8 lead. DMP closed the lead with a penalty and Northern defended to the death and were unfortunate not to score when play was stopped for attention to an injured DMP player. With the last play Northern pressed on the DMP line but got a poor call by the referee allowing DMP to kick for touch and press on and score a very late try. This was a crushing blow which every lad felt. There is still a lot more to come from a cracking set of young men. Future looks very bright.
