On Friday evening we were destined to have no game. Enter James and Colin from stage right and all of a sudden a home fixture against Heaton Moor was on the cards!
“Gorillas in the mist” sums up the weather and the lads performance. With 10 regulars missing we fielded 15 against an opposition armed with spare fire power. Our gorillas gave everything they had and went into half time 5-10 down.
We were totally dominant in the second half but failed to convert possession and field dominance. A late break away from Heaton ended the game with a 5-17 win to the away team.
Special thanks must go out to Mike Dickinson who stood in at the last minute to ref and Joe Shiels for fantastic forwards coaching.
We go into the Christmas break beaten but full of confidence for 2022.
