West Park Leeds Academy 55-7 Huddersfield Academy….Match Report

It’s a different world in N.Leeds, we almost agreed to play on the grass, having left 2 inches of snow in Huddersfield!

Onto the match, the first 10 minutes was like watching Brazil; sadly WPL were Brazil and we were Qatar! Sometimes it takes a shock to wake you up and this is what happened. All of a sudden we had the ball, and guess what we scored through Callum our new very confident second row. Nice one lad!
The rest of the first half was evenly matched with WPL going into the break 24-7 ahead.

When they came to us earlier in the season we were very impressed with the WPL back line. Sadly for us they have now got even better. The final score of 55-7 does not reflect the match. Our lads ALL battled hard and if it wasn’t for cold, buttery hands we would have scored at least 2 or 3 tries in the second half.

Christmas Dinner is booked for Thursday. An evening of bonding and nonsense is just what the lads need. We are heading off to Beverley next Sunday and will return with their scalps!
