Danny lays down the law as Lit­tle­bor­ough

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - AARON JONES

LIT­TLE­BOR­OUGH sec­onds pro­duced one of their per­for­mances of the sea­son to record their first win in 3 games against Tar­leton Sec­onds.

A hat-trick from cen­tre Danny Lawlor as well as tries from Chris Collins and Kon­rad Hill saw Lit­tle­bor­ough put in a full 80 minute per­for­mance and beat a very good side in Tar­leton.

Both teams ex­changed tries in the first half at a sunny Rake­wood as the home side took a slen­der 2 point lead in the break.

The se­cond half pro­duced three more tries and a penalty in a pul­sat­ing game that would go right down to the wire. Visi­tors Tar­leton who won the re­verse fix­ture 24-5 a few days be­fore Christ­mas and came into the match on the back of a 4 match win­ning run, took the early lead as the fly half broke through the mid­field and made a cross field kick to the right winger to gol­lop up.

Lit­tle­bor­ough’s re­sponse was im­me­di­ate and of pure qual­ity.

A well-worked move with quick hands from the likes of Richard Tay­lor, Nathan Ma­son and Joel Rawl­in­son al­lowed Kon­rad Hill to dart into a gap in the op­po­si­tion ranks.

He made no mis­take by sprint­ing down the touch line to score Lit­tle­bor­ough’s first of many in the game.

Tar­leton took back their lead with an­other strong run by the fly half who gave his team mate a loose pass which he man­aged to take bril­liantly.

But Lit­tle­bor­ough got a bril­liant se­cond as an­other well-worked move down the right al­lowed Hill to put Aaron Jones into a gap.

De­spite the left winger be­ing felled mere me­tres from the try line, the 24-year-old was able to pop up the ball for cap­tain Chris Collins to fin­ish off.
