North Leeds Leopards U12s 12 v Stanley Rangers U12s 326

Today our  Under 12’s travelled to Leeds to take on the Leopards, again Stanley faced a tough task against the top of the league side with only 8 players against 12.
Rangers started brightly putting pressure on the Leeds sides line but against the run of play Leopards struck with 2 quick tries.8-0. Rangers worked hard through impressive forwards Austin, Davenport and Harrison making good metres, a strong run by Aiden dragging in defenders and quick hand from Harry, Alfie and Tyler send Archie in the corner, 8-4.
Leopards hit again before the half time whistle to lead at the break, 12-4.
Rangers struck early in the second half with Alfie diving over close home and converting his own try 12-10. Some smart defence from Archie and Jack drove the Leopards player into touch and meant Stanley could break through, Alfie, Austin, Harrison and Jack to get us close to the line so Harry could power over, again converted by Alfie 12-16.  The game was in the balance and Stanley battling hard gave Alfie another chance out wide powering over to make it 12-20.
With 5 minutes to go and the game almost won, Stanley powered down the field hungrier for more points lead to a powerful 20 metre drive from Austin powering over for his 1st try in the red and black shirt, converted well by Alfie to leave the final score, 12-26.
Coach Paul again said how proud he was "when facing more men we showed what we are capable of - just imagine when our numbers improve, the lads are working hard in training and that’s showing on the field well done boys and enjoy the win."
