Tigers continued their winning streak with a big shift as they battled it with a committed and well drilled Harrogate Rugby. There were plenty of incidents to keep both sets of rugby union fans talking.

The Sedgley match report giving plenty of space about two yellow cards and the 24 minutes rather than 20 minutes that were required. It could have been costly as Sedgley were down to 13 men with Harrogate sensing they could take the game.

Harrogate look to be very professional in their approach and are clearly well coached; these factors have won some plaudits this season. This game demonstrated they are well justified ones as they pushed Sedge hard all the way.

To complete the story it is the Sedgley website that best sums the day up: “Tigers though are best in adversity and the true colours of the team were shown when down at 13 they ran in try number 5 via Johnny Lamprey with the extras coming from Steve Collins. Game over.

Another hard road trip but another bonus point win. Harrogate are a very good outfit and this was a very good away day win.

So good performances today from Johnny Bishop, Billy Emerson, Max Ashcroft and Johnny Mathews but for me Louis McGowan was outstanding. His work at the breakdown and on the fringes was excellent. Games are won when players are prepared to do the dirty hard yards, and gritty hang on for dear life defence which sometimes goes unrecognised and unrewarded. Not today, Great effort big man.”

The Tigers, who now sit fourth in the table, welcome bottom of the league and still winless Dudley Kingswinford to Manchester for the first fixture of December this coming Saturday.
