Bridgwater got their season back together with this six try defeat of a plucky Wells side. In doing so, they crept one point closer to Ivybridge but remain in third place in the league. Bridgwater made a couple of changes after last week’s defeat at Bideford. Nick Francis returned to the wing in place of [...]
All good things must come to an end and Bridgwater’s run of eight successive league victories came to a shuddering halt at a very cold Bideford. The North Devon side looked just that little bit sharper. Bridgwater outscored the home side by three tries to two and created enough chances for at least three more [...]
Match report by Tony Pomeroy This was a typical hard fought league game between two fairly even-matched teams. No quarter was given or asked and some of the tackling was of a very high standard. Both sides contributed to a game of seven tries and enjoyed by a large crowd. Bridgwater brought in Garryn Basson [...]
Bridgwater second team opted keep the bulk of the team that orchestrated a 40 point win over Old Sulians at College Way last week. They travelled to Castle Cary to take on their first team and were looking for some retribution after losing by a single point at home earlier in the season. There were [...]
Bridgwater made three changes to the starting XV which convincingly beat Yatton II’s last week by 51 points to play Old Sulians at College Way. Drew Shaw was promoted from the bench to replace Jay Owens who had a gammy ankle and create a new centre partnership with Charlie Johnson. In the pack, Joe Stradling [...]
Yatton II 3 – 49 (54) BARFC II After the disappointment of losing to 2nd place Chew Valley before the Christmas break, Bridgwater 2s were looking to get back to winning ways on the road to Yatton. Having won in the reverse fixture at College Way 34-8 and having not lost on the road this season, [...]
The Dirtrackers anxious to get back into play following the failure of Ivel Barbarians II to materialise last week fell foul of the weather this time as Somerton’s pitch was waterlogged and Saturday’s encounter was postponed. Fortunately there are plenty of further gaps in the season to catch up this match but the Dirtrackers, reeling [...]
The 3rd XV fixture against Somerton, which was postponed yesterday has been rescheduled for 14th February.
Bridgwater & Albion 3rd XV were hoping to get back on the road after suffering a disappointing defeat at Tor the previous week. However the opposition – Ivel Barbarians II – did not arrive. When Albion played Ivel away the home side just about managed to gather a side together, so the signs of them [...]
Bridgy were unrecognisable as the same team that lost heavily the previous week. Their closing down of Weston runners and first up tackling was a vast improvement. So much so that, three minutes in the Bridgwater centres were caught well offside in their enthusiasm. Weston slotted the resultant penalty. For the remainder of the first [...]
This result is the heaviest defeat for Bridgy’s colts for some. The main factors being some very poor tackling from Bridgwater in defence and (credit to Wellington) the sheer mobility and physical fitness of all their players, of which they appear to have almost two full squads again! In truth, going forward, Bridgwater exercise good [...]
The minis and juniors were hosted this morning by Cheddar Valley RFC. It was cold and blustery but more importantly remained dry. They boys and girls of the Youth Rugby squads had a great mornings rugby with some fantastic play from both sides. The U11′s also took on visitors from Wells. Our thanks go to [...]
Thanks to Tor and Ivel/Yeovil RFC visiting College Way today and giving us a great and entertaining mornings rugby. Particularly great to see Tor Youth Section back on their feet and playing great youth rugby.
Bridgwater’s U15 side travelled down the M5 to take on Wellington’s U15s on 23rd November. Travelling with a healthy squad of 20 players, including some new players, Bridgwater won the game by an impressive 64 – 12. Wellington were not helped by losing players to injury during the warm up. Bridgwater’s coaches said this reflected an [...]
