Yate go into New Year at top of table

North Bristol RFC 26-72 Yate RFC

YATE RFC go into the New Year top of the table in the Wadworths Bristol and District 2 league.

The side's 72 points to 26 win away at North Bristol RFC on December 7 was Yate’s seventh win in eight league games this season.

During the game, fly half James Cannon scored a club record 37 points in a single game, with 4 tries, 7 conversions and a penalty.

The game also saw club skipper Neil Olive record 100 points for the club with his solo try.

Other scores came from the prolific Craig Archer, with two tries, and a try apiece for Neil Lavelle, John Muckle and cousins Liam and Rhys Summerville. Muckle’s was his first for the club.

It is worth noting that, to enable the game to take place with a full 15 players per side, Yate lent their opponents two players who completed a full 80 minutes for North Bristol, in Will Mace and Steve Summerhayes, and then also provided several replacements for injured North Bristol players to keep the teams evenly matched.
