Leigh Miners 6 Hindley 1
What a game today at the Miners, weather was bad I’m sure I saw cats and dogs and some stage before kick off. Trust me theirs no hosepipe bans in Leigh this month.
The game was very hard and both teams played well. I’m proud of all the lad’s for the way they played today. They have come on leaps and bounds over the last few months jelling together in all aspects of play. Gave as good as they got and kept cool heads when it got heated that’s what the game is all about.
Alex Cunliffe had the best game he’s ever had tackling like a prop from the start, He took some hard tackles himself, and did some awesome runs.
Matthew Lears back off holiday tackled very hard and won Top Tackler award or (Dave Award)!
Blake Livesey got the most improved award for his no stop driving the ball forward he’s got a lion heart for his size.
Hindleys only try today came from Tom Grundy with his trade mark run to the top right corner for a touch down brilliant back up from the rest of the team.
Big pat on the back for Aiden Roscoe who tried today but he was not 100% fit and had to come off poorly well done mate.
Thanks to Jack Lythgoe for support he gave and doing the water duty his card will be back shortly fingers crossed.
Massive thanks to Paul and Sally-Ann for reffing today it’s the hardest job in rugby everybody gives you stick and think they know the game. ( Including Me) LOL
