York RI pay costly price for penalties
9:15am Monday 23rd September 2013 in Sport
REGULAR concession of penalties proved expensive for York RI in their Yorkshire Four trip to Sheffield Oaks.
The RI ranks went down 13-7 hampered by an 8-1 penalty count against them in the first half.
The hosts led 6-0 at half-time, before early into the restart a speculative kick bounced kindly to enable them to score under the posts for a 13-0 lead.
RI dragged themselves back and coach Dan Coates crashed over for a try, Chris Morley adding the extras.
Unfortunately Coates was injured while crossing and took no further part in the game.
RI secured a bonus point but they were left wondering how the overall penalty count finished 14-5 in favour of the Oaks’ outfit.
