Birstall Victoria  U12s 6 Stanley Rangers U12s 42

Stanley continued their good league form with a comfortable win over last seasons bogey side.

Stanley started the game receiving the kick off from Birstall and again made life difficult for themselves as the ball bounced into touch.  However they showed great desire in defence as they managed to keep Birstall out for 2 consecutive sets on their own line. From this point on Stanley really stamped their dominance on the game and in the 5th minute Zack Leaworthy jinked his way over for the opening score, conversion missed. 0 - 4. Stanley didn’t waste time in adding a second as Riley Britton continued his excellent early season form, broke through the middle of the Birstall defence and ran the ball in to score under the posts. Josh Chapman added the conversion, 0 - 10. Birstall came back at Stanley though and after an error gave them some good ball possession they took their opportunity to register their only try of the game when their nippy hooker scooted across field and managed to get on the outside of the Stanley defence, to score in the corner. The Birstall kicker nailed an excellent touchline conversion. 6 - 10. Stanley’s response to conceding was to up the intensity in defence and after restricting Birstall to limited metres they collected the ball on half way and after a couple of strong carries, Riley Britton repeated what he had done earlier to break clear for his 2nd try of the match. George Britton converted. 6 - 16. Stanley’s next score came when Riley Britton turned provider, when after looking like he would register his hat trick he made sure of the score by passing to Finley Tate to go over in the corner unopposed. Conversion missed. 6 - 20. Stanley managed to score 1 more before half time after again working the ball to the left a well timed pass again put Tate over in the corner for his 2nd of the match. Conversion missed. 6 - 24. HT

The 2nd half saw more of the same with committed defence from Stanley forcing Birstall to kick long from their own half and Stanley taking the ball back well into the oppositions territory. This pressure finally paid off when Riley Britton did register his hat trick, with another of his trademark breaks and run to the line. Josh Chapman converted. 6 - 30. Stanley’s team spirit really came to the fore with every player looking to get in on the action both in defence and attack and after they had been put under pressure from a Birstall kick close to their own line Kye Robinson came up with an unbelievable relieving carry, beating multiple defenders and running 90m only to be pulled down a couple of metres from the try line, when he looked likely to score. From this Stanley moved the ball left and Zack Leaworthy threw a dummy and stepped past a despairing defender to score his 2nd of the game. George Britton converted. 6 - 36. Birstall never gave in and tested Stanley’s line on a couple of occasions but Stanley were in no mood to concede again and it was Stanley who finished the game with another score as Riley Britton again broke through a tired Birstall defence to get his 4th of the game. George Britton converted final Score. 6 - 42.
