Corithians ensure survival in Y4.
A very impressive forwards display ensures Leeds Corinthians survival in Yorkshire Division 4.
On a cold and windy day in Middleton, Corinthians took on local rivals Ossett Rufc in a must win game. Corinthians knew their future was in their own hands, win and stay up or lose and be relegated.
The entire team showed their commitment to staying in the league with two fantastic training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday.
The training sessions soon paid off with the Corinthians forwards dominating up front right from the off. The forwards out played and out enthused their opposite numbers. Corinthians lineout’s, scrums and rolling mauls were all proving to be very effective. Man of the match prop Andy Pettler lead superbly from the front once again bagging a brace of tries. Back row Dave Germaine scored the other try after being the first to react to a loose ball.
Both sets of back looked dangerous on the few occasions they got the ball.
Ossett gave the league the full respect it has earned this season by continuing to play open rugby right till the final whistle scoring the last try.
