KIRKBY Lonsdale Rugby Club broke the wrong kind of record after they were on the receiving end of one of the highest-ever scores in British Rugby Union.

The team crashed to a 190-0 defeat to Blackburn in Regional One North West.

The score topped the previous worst score line of 177-3 in December 1996 when Norwich defeated Eccles and Attleborough in a Norfolk Cup match.

Kirkby Lonsdale are bottom of the table without a single point all season and in 19 League games have conceded over 1,400 points.

The team who are relegated have still got three league games left between now and the end of the season as they travel to play Northwich on Saturday before closing with two home games against Rossendale and Wirral.

Blackburn who are second in the league with a game in hand of league leaders Lymm, had 14 different try scorers where they ended up scoring thirty tries which is quicker than one every three minutes, while twenty of the tries were converted.

Connor Scrivens scored six tries while Josh kicked twelve of the conversions on a record-breaking afternoon.

However, the only consolation for Kirkby Lonsdale was that it wasn’t a world record score, a record which stays in Denmark where Comet defeated Lindo 194-0 back in 1973.

There was more positive news for Kirkby Lonsdale where the club's longer-term future continues to look very positive where their Under 15’s take centre stage as they take on Wigton in the final of the Cumbria Cup on Sunday, with the final to take place at Silloth RFC.
