Ill-discipline so costly as Beavers lose record
BEVERLEY lost their 100 per cent record following a disappointing 15-12 defeat at Morley.
Beverley had numerous chances to win, and totally dominated the second half, but ill-discipline and poor handling cost them dear and they were defeated by five penalties to two tries and a conversion.
Winger Simon Bradshaw kicked a penalty for Morley after four minutes and added another after eight minutes when Beverley backchat to the referee took the penalty a further ten metres upfield and within kicking range of goal.

Beverley increasingly dominated in the forwards and created numerous openings which should have brought them a score.
But it was Morley who increased their lead shortly before half-time with a third Bradshaw penalty when Beverley were penalised for crossing.
Beverley flanker Joe Picketts and Morley skipper Mark Chester were yellow-carded following a fracas five minutes before the interval.
After the break, Beverley stormed the home line and second-row Fraley Hopa crossed for a try after good work by the forwards.
Despite fierce Beverley pressure, Morley somehow kept them out until five minutes from time when full-back Richard Bussey sprinted 60 metres down the left touchline for what should have been a match-winning try.
Fly-half Phil Duboulay converted and at 12-9 ahead Beverley merely needed to see out time.
But in the dying minutes they twice tried to run the ball from their own line, instead of kicking clear, and each time gave away penalties which allowed Bradshaw firstly to level the scores and then to snatch the victory for Morley.
Beverley now slip to third in the table, with one defeat in six, but they will be confident of moving to the top again with some easier looking fixtures in the next few weeks.
