Brods prove a hit at Scarborough Fes­ti­val

Halifax Courier - - Sport -

Old Brods un­der 12s re­turned vic­to­ri­ous from a mini fes­ti­val at the im­pres­sive Sil­ver Royd, home of Scarborough RUFC. They opened with a 3-2 win over Ellesmere Port.

A nice kick over the heads of a mas­sive Ellesmere pack by Tom Parkin found Tom In­man who took the opener just be­fore the half time whis­tle.

Af­ter the break strong runs from Dan Leahy and Jack­son Wood made good yards and Parkin crossed. Cliff added the third.

Ellesmere claimed two tries in quick suc­ces­sion but Brods held on.

Parkin scored the opener in a 5-0 win over Round­he­gians. In­man made a weav­ing run and crossed af­ter which his kick up­field bounced per­fectly for Cliff.

Af­ter the break Thack­ray went in hard and low to cross and In­man took a sec­ond be­fore Thack­ray crossed by the cor­ner flag.

Against the hosts, Ge­orge Gill­grass made a jink­ing run for the opener be­fore In­man bat­tled through sev­eral tack­les to touch down.

Af­ter the break Ben Hodg­son linked up with Louis In­man who dived over for the 3-0 win.

That set up a fi­nal en­counter with Ellesmere Port.

Parkin crossed to take the opener af­ter which the sec­ond half was played in Elles- mere’s half.

Gill­grass and Tom In­man crossed twice be­fore Parkin took the last seal­ing a 5-0 win. Rish­wor­thi­ans u16s 54 Don­caster u16s 0 Reds warmed up for this week­end’s York­shire Cup fi­nal against York at Hull Io­ni­ans with a com­fort­able win.

Will McDon­nell spun the ball out to Will Bow­ers who scored un­der the sticks. Ja­cob Bower added the con­ver­sion.

A turnover in the break­down by Dy­lan Har­ley-Poul­ton re­leased Bower who also con­verted

Max Spolver­ato sprinted across field to score, Bower con­vert­ing, be­fore Bower’s dummy al­lowed him to slip through for a con­verted try.

A tap penalty saw Jack Davis crash through, Bower con­vert­ing, and from an­other scrum against the head Cock­roft crossed. Bower con­verted to give Reds a 42-0 lead at half-time.

Sam Nunn sliced through the de­fence to score, Bower con­vert­ing, then, af­ter Ben Rooney had been de­nied a try through a for­ward pass, play swept from the right through the backs and the fi­nal pass again found Rooney who flew down the wing to score. Rish­wor­thi­ans un­der 15s will face Sh­effield in the fi­nal of the York­shire Bowl this week­end, also at Hull Io­ni­ans.
