First half points beat a physical Aspull s

A much changed leyland side arrived at a soggy Aspull in a 3rd vs 4th clash, a very physically sometime violent clash.
The warriors started with two debutantes, with Sam Dimmock starting at fly half and adam bee coming in at outside centre.
Leyland started much the brighter and imposing themselves at scrum-time soon had the home team on the back foot which allowed the warriors backline test the Aspull defence.
The first score of the game came from the boot of the leyland full back Nathan burns.
It wants long until the warriors crossed the whitewash with joe Weston scoring in the corner, which was converted by burns.
After more good work at the scrum, the leyland shunted Aspull off their own ball and a clever kick in behind the defence allowed joe Kirkby to score, again converted by burns.
After the early onslaught by the warriors, Aspull rang the changes bringing on a number of players with first team experience.
This could stop Andrew Robinson from ghosting outside his opposite number to score under the posts allowing burns to kick this third conversion.
Following the restart tempers started to flare in the home team which resulted in one of their fronted row being yellow card for a swinging arm.
The last score of the half was the same as the first with a penalty from burns boot.
Warriors leading at halftime 27-0.
More changes by the home side at the interval seemed to have some effect, as some strong running forced leyland to concede a number of penalties which resulted in replacement flanker Martin Robinson being sent to the bin.
The warriors now a man down where unable to resist the constant pressure being applied by the strong running home side, who crashed over to record there first score.
The 'niggle' took over the game with skirmishes breaking out. Which ended up costing the home side as it allowed burns to slot over another penalty making the score 30-5.
This is where the score ended up, as the referee called a halt to proceedings with 10 minutes to go fearing losing control of the players after another punch thrown by an Aspull player.
Another great win for the warriors
Who next week entertain blackpool, at the first 'Friday night lights' game being held on the new all weather pitch at hoppers.
