Scunthorpe Academy 24-5 Huddersfield Academy

This one is the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY.

Let’s start with the good. We’ve never been to Scunthorpe before. They have great pitches and a top clubhouse. More good, with A level mocks starting next week we were short of U18 players. Alex Broadhead just off a dental operation and Archie Stancliffe both turned up to give us a half. Thanks lads. Final good, a try for Ollie Rushby, a heroic performance by Alex Exley and Euan caught the ball in the line out.

Here comes the ugly. We have always been proud that however calls go against the lads they don’t lose their heads. Today, sadly, multiple yellow cards and challenging decisions saw us drop our heads and we lost discipline.

Finally the bad. We lost 24-5.

It is disappointing that we lost our 6 game unbeaten run. I am however confident that today we learnt that keeping our cool is worth a lot of points.
We’ll be better because of it!!
