West Park Leeds 15-7 Huddersfield Colts….Match Report

West Park Leeds has always been an unhappy ground for the U18 lads. Conversely the U17s have always found it a great spot to chalk up wins. With this in mind we turned up today full of confidence.

Sadly we had our predictable slow start and soon found ourselves 5-0 down. Not much joy from HRUFC in the first half which finished 10-0. A motivational team talk at half time which included a little Channel 4 language saw our lads lift their game to match and at many points exceed WPL.

A well worked break away try from them made it 15-0. As for last week the last 10 minutes belonged to HRUFC as wave after wave of attack was launched. Freddie Warburton our flame haired Viking made the break through scoring his 3rd try in 4. The ever reliable Lance Barker converted to make it 7-15.

Sadly for HRUFC to little too late. Special thanks today to Kai, Luke, Harry and Chris who all put a shift in for WPL. Loaning players ensures that the lads get maximum game time and we get a bonus point as a reward. Today we managed to gain 2 points as we also get one for playing away.

We are still top of the league and have a fabulous squad of cracking lads. Let’s keep our heads on and down and start 2025 with a couple of wins. Happy Christmas everyone. Cheers
