The Pirates fell to their first defeat of the season losing 31-10 at home to a lively West Park Leeds team. The Pirates cause was not helped when Leeds turned up without a foront row and the game was played uncontested. The Pirates simply could find no rhythm without scrums and struggled to contain the opposition's younger, fitter forwards. The Pirates try came from Vinny, with Irish Steve adding a conversion and a penalty.
Mom went to Paul Day
, who with no scrummaging duties to perform had a storming game.
