2018 Leeds Uni 1st XIII V Nottingham Uni 1st XIII
10th October 2018
On an uncomfortably hot day in the midlands, our 1s went down 28-24 to a spirited Nottingham side. They got off to a good start with Brad Taylor finding space on the left edge after good work by Ben Stevens. Harry Aaronson converted. Nottingham then scored for tries in four sets which put them 24-6 ahead at half time.
The second half began in a similar fashion to the first with uni scoring twice through Aaronson taking the score to 24-18. Uni thought they had completed the comeback when Joel Bateson scored over from hooker to level the scores but a controversial try in the last five minutes from Nottingham sent them home 28-24 winners.
MOM went to Sam Greaves for an excellent stint in the pack. Onto next week vs a very good Newcastle side.
