2018 Leeds Uni 1st XIII V Newcastle Uni 1st XIII
17th October 2018
Having been bitterly disappointed after last week’s performance, the 1s bounced back to beat Newcastle 36-18 in a tight match at Weetwood.
The 1s started well but were unable to capitalise. However, the home side were eventually 12-0 up at the half thanks to tries from 2018 Jude Corcos and Reece Brunt, respectively.
With main prop, Sam Greaves, off the field with a badly broken nose, you could have expected the performance to drop off but it intensified with four more tries from Ben Stevens, Harry Aaronson and Corcos and Brunt again. Aaronson converting 5 of 6. Newcastle scored three late tries, which will disappoint coach Rumford but the game was already won and 1s came out victorious.
Next week is another big challenge vs Hull and the boys are looking forward to it already.
