The U18's kick started their season today with some scintillating rugby that shocked the St.Helens outfit ....
The home side were brimming with confidence following a big win on the opening weekend but they were in for a surprise today as the Panthers rolled into town determined to play rugby. And play rugby they did with some superb tries in the first half from Tom Flanagan, Dan McLean, Tom Carter and Alex Ryan.
With a 20 nil lead at the break it was Panthers game to lose but they started where they left off and further tries from Carter, Curtis Lacey and Peter Clarke secured the win. But the best was saved for the end when full back Ben Jones gathered the ball near to his own line and then stepped the oncoming defence and went the full length for a fantastic score.
Defence was on top today with a superb effort from the Chorley lads leaving the Haydock team with nowhere to go. alex bridge was the Man of the Match for a great defensive effort.
Next week we entertain the West Bank Bears from Widnes.
