Mirfield 46 King Cross Park 14
Playing on the local grammar school pitch, King Cross Park A Team were taught a lesson as the well drilled Mirfield team opened up a 4 try lead. The introduction of bronzed Izaac Beaumont provided much needed go forward and excellent interplay between stand off Danny Hildred, centre Ben Robertshaw, winger Henry Wilson and back to Hildred opened the Park account. On the opposite flank intrepid explorer centre Dan Watkinson and winger Will Sutcliffe wreaked havoc to create the position for burly loose forward Matt Brown to close the gap. A much tighter defence kept the score to 22 - 8 at half time.
Prop Ryan Barrett and second row Taylor Craven Carter continued to lead the defence repelling a wave of repeat sets on the line after the break but the dam burst on 10 minutes. With ball in hand King Cross continued to impress with prop Kieran Baxter showing the wingers how to go on with scoots from half back ably supported by full back Halden Thoseby. In just 3 games Robertshaw has become a force to be reckoned with and, after sending danger man Wilson on numerous touchline dashes, finished his first score for the club in style. A 33.33333'% conversion rate from Brown closed the scoring.
