AFTER their dramatic last-gasp 24-22 victory at Tynedale last weekend, Rob Baldwin is reminding Wharfedale's players that is it only job half done when it comes to their survival bid in National League Two North.

The Greens now need to defeat Macclesfield at The Avenue in their last game of the season on Saturday to stay up.

Three teams go down, and Sheffield, who have 37 points and can only reach 47, are already doomed.

Baldwin, who replaces Michael Harrison as director of rugby next season, said: "Macclesfield are a good team as can be seen by them putting 50 points on Stourbridge last Saturday, and I would encourage as many of our supporters as possible to get down on Saturday as they do make a difference."

A Wharfedale win would also relegate Blaydon, who can only reach 56, which is the same number of points that the Greens would be at were they to get a four-point win, but the Dalesmen would have 11 wins to Blaydon's nine.

The biggest unknown quantity in the four-into-three demotion equation are Luctonians, who can get to 57 points with three bonus-point wins, but the last of those are at home to prospective champions Sale.

Victory at Tynedale looked unlikely for Wharfedale when they trailed 14-0 after 15 minutes and 22-12 just after half-time as the home side again showed their ability to seize opportunities.

"We made a few mistakes," admitted Baldwin.

"We threw the ball to the back of our first line-out and Tynedale got possession, and then missed a kick to touch.

"Our errors meant that we hadn't had chance to put our plans into action, and the interception try just after half-time was a heart-sinker as we had got back into the game.

"But we always felt that we could win, especially after Phil Woodhead got his first try, and I was glad in some ways that I was on the field and able to control what I could control."

Baldwin, who played for 72 minutes before being replaced by Richard Rhodes, added: "It would have been worse if I had been off the field as you feel so helpless, apart from making substitutions."

The Greens then showed good continuity against Tynedale's heroic defence, but a crucial element was when the home side had the chance to put a penalty kick into touch late on.

Winger Oli Cicognini showed great athleticism to bat the ball back to Woodhead, and Baldwin said: "Everyone expected Woody to take the attack into the open, but he darted down the blindside and made good ground, enabling us to keep the pressure on.

"Then Woody got a try with the last play of the game."
