A brilliant day for rugby and no better setting than Ilkley.
We were treated to their 1st XV pitch and after a fabulous effort from Tracy a society ref who was excellent.
Five minutes in it looked like our lads not only stayed up to watch the boxing but were in the ring!
Some days you need to go backwards before going forwards and we did, going 7-0 down. That was the wake up call we needed and 10 minutes later we were 7-22 ahead.
Our lads piled on the pressure and managed to score 2 tries from set plays. It has only taken 7 years for us to pull that trick off.
With a final score of 14-43 we march into round 2 fearing nobody!
