Novos missed regular kickers Richie Lamb and Dan Bollado and paid the price, losing by the narrowest of margins against Ryton.
Despite tries for Paul Henderson, James Blanchard and debutant Jonny Ward Novos were unable to win this match against Ryton. Missing regular kickers Lamb and Bollado certainly contributed whilst Ryton enjoyed the reliable boot of ex pro Jon Benson to give them the 2 valuable league points.
There is enough on this evidence to suggest Novos can compete at this level and many positives can be taken.
