BEVERLEY ‘A’ 72 SCARBOROUGH PIRATES 24
This proved to be a very useful workout for a strong ‘A’ team in which many were vying for first team places in next week’s all important NCL clash at Bradford Dudley Hill. The home side chose to give the ball plenty of air against a very bulky Scarborough outfit.
It paid dividends as Jonny Norman, Josh Poskitt, Luke Parker, Glen Anfield, Joe Dobson, Alex Murray, Casey Hutchinson (2), Josh Hamlyn(2), Josh Pooley(2) all posted tries. All 12 tries were converted by Josh Poskitt (3) and Joe Dobson (9). To their credit the visitors never threw in the towel and did reply with 4 converted tries.
There were impressive performances from Joe Dobson and Josh Hamlyn and it was pleasing to see Luke Parker and Josh Poskitt out on the park again having been previously sidelined with lengthy injuries. It has been a shocking year for injuries at Beverley and they will be relieved to get some fit bodies back on the park.
