‘A’ team needed a couple more minutes.


The ‘A’ team went down to a narrow defeat against against  very bulky and physical opponents. This has very often been the case when visiting the east coast in the past.  They finished the game strongly and were 20-8 down at one stage. Perhaps with another couple of minutes on the clock, they could have pinched it.  Phil Horsfield commented ” I was very pleased with the effort from all 17 players  and with a bit more luck and playing smarter we would have won.”

Sam Beardshaw impressed on his debut and there were 4 well worked tries. Josh Hamlyn crossed from 60 yards out and Will Kirkup scored 2 well taken tries off kicks from Joe Morley. Reece Hudson also crossed for a try. Alex Nutall added Beverley’s only conversion of the afternoon.
