Team ASure's Consett RFC finished the first half of the 2019-20 rugby union season with an undefeated record after posting a 32-17 bonus point win win against Medicals RFC at Amethyst Park, Consett on Sat 14th December. The win maintains the black & yellows 8 point lead at the top of Durham / Northumberland 1 with promotion clearly within the clubs grasp.
Consett RFC Strength & Conditioning Coach / ASure Financial company director Andrew Smith was pleased with the win, but insisted that there's still plenty to work on going into 2020.
"Really pleased with the win today. Medicals are a good side and have beaten some quality opposition so far this season including Northern and Westoe who sit 2nd and 3rd in the table at the moment. We went into the game knowing that this could be a potential banana skin for us so to come away with 5 points at the end of it and an undefeated record in the first half of the season is testament to the hard work the lads are putting into training and the quality coaching that Johan (Olkers) and Jack (Hayes) are giving them every week.
There's still plenty for us to work on though. We switched off for the first 20 minutes of the 2nd half and credit to Medicals, they were really up for it and gave us a bit of a wake up call. We'll work hard on our fitness over the xmas and new year period and aim to hit the ground running at home against Aklam on saturday 4th January."
