York RI RUFC draw with Old Otliensians
10:36am Monday 16th September 2013 in Rugby Union
YORK RI RUFC shared an enterprising 10-10 Yorkshire Four draw with Old Otliensians at New Lane.
A missed tackle let in the visitors’ winger in for a converted try to lead 7-0.
Then Rob Agen and Matt Weingarth were sin-binned before the former was red-carded for lifting an opponent. The penalty gave Otliensians a 10-0 interval lead.
The heroic home 14 defended resolutely in the second half and and just as the opposition supporters thought it was done and dusted RI winger Andy Brentnall intercepted a pass on his own line to show blistering pace to score. Baptiste Briu added the extras.
The hosts put the Otley pack under tremendous pressure and a series of errors presented RI with a penalty 40 metres out which Briu kicked to seal a superb share-all.
For RI, both new French players showed up very well with Yohan Barthelmy taking the man of the match award.
