Jos 0 - 7 Barewa

Barewa got off to a good start to the 2014 season with an away win at Jos.

The match was a very stop-start affair, and lengthy lectures from the match official slowed the pace of the game down even further. Barewa's game plan allowed them to contain Jos, but neither team was able to find any rhythm or fluidity.

The only try of the match was scored by Barewa centre Joshua Effiong when Barewa's rush defence resulted in him intercepting a loose Jos pass, as he sprinted in for the score from 25m out.

All in all a very good result to start the season, more especially after enduring a five hour bus ride to get to Jos. This weekend will see Barewa travelling to Zaria, much closer to home and a very different threat, but one which they are clearly ready to face.
