Hemsworth 65 Hornsea 8
A very difficult day was had by the Hollismen in South Yorkshire as they were comprehensively defeated by a very strong second placed Hemsworth side in Yorkshire Division Four. With several key players missing it was always going to be a big ask for the East Yorkshire side, but all players gave their all and stuck at it for the full 80 minutes. The Hornsea points came from vice captain David Ashbridge who crossed over for a try and a Richard Pooley penalty.
Speaking after the game, Hornsea captain Gareth Laycock said, “The lads gave their all today, but we were simply beaten by a better side, I was very frustrated not to be out there with the rest of the boys but my rib injury sadly kept me on the sideline. We have a winnable game next week at home to Rotherham Clifton, and it’s important that we dust ourselves down, put this result behind us and prepare for a game against a team who we should be competing with”.

Trys from Hornsea captain Gareth Laycock, wing Jack Foster and full back Adie Wadforth, and two converted by Richard Pooley, were sadly the only points the Hollismen scored on a difficult afternoon against their South Yorkshire opponents. Clifton took a 17:0 lead after twenty minutes with three trys and a conversion, Hornsea then hit back with trys from Laycock and Wadforth one converted by Pooley, to get right back into the game. However on the stroke of half time the Hollismen spilled the ball near their line and Clifton capitalised and scored to take a 22:12 lead at the interval.
Clifton took a firm stranglehold on the game, bagging three more tries after the break, with Jack Foster the only scorer for Hornsea in the second half, to secure a 39:19 deserved victory.
Disappointed by the defeat, Hornsea captain Gareth Laycock said, “We never really got going today, we looked disjointed and we must improve, work and train hard together if we are going to turn things round.
We must not get too down heartened by this result, although it was disappointing, I still thought we showed plenty of signs to be encouraged. We need to realise that we are playing much better opposition than last season so we need viagra comprar por internet to be at our best, today we were not. Training is critical for us to gel and improve in time for these games, so I encourage all players to make the effort to attend”.
