Gainsborough All Blacks lost their unbeaten streak on Saturday with a 57-17 defeat at the hands of table toppers Ollerton.

Ollerton started the first half on a high note with two quick early tries that were converted and put Gainsborough into a precarious position within the first quarter of the game.

Fortunately for the visitors Grant Bell popped up again for his second try in two games giving Gainsborough a chance but unfortunately the conversion had missed its target.

The home side went onto dominate the first half by scoring two more tries and also converting them to take the game into the half- time interval with the score line at 28-5 in the favour of the team from Nottinghamshire.

Gainsborough All Blacks improved in the second half and were taking the fight to Ollerton and this eventually led to club captain Vernon Goude repeating his pre season antics by scoring Gainsborough’s second try of the game.

Ollerton though carried on from where they left off and scored two more tries but miss out on the extra points.

All Blacks Man of the match Andy Turner Guest added his contribution to the score line by going over to get Gainsborough’s final try of the game, which the young Adam Mathias converted.

Gainsboroughs afternoon would worsen with the home team running riot by running in three more tries with only two being converted.

The All Blacks are in Vase competition next against Deepings RFC whilst the Maoris are away to Boston.
