1st XV away vs Aspull
Prenton Select away to League Champions
A Prenton select travelled to Aspull RUFC as a squad of 20 from across all club teams. This was due to unavailability of most of the regular 1st XV squad members.
The squad was under no illusion of the size of the task in hand but travelled in good spirits anyway, the friendly against Mold had to be cancelled as many of the vets squad travelled.
Prenton started well and took the lead with the first 5 minutes from a great individual try from Dan Woods. Prenton continued to dominate for a further 2 - 3 minutes until Aspull scored the first of their 48 first half points. However Aspull had to compete hard for those points as Prenton dominated set pieces and the ruck area. It was only when Aspull were able to counter attack did their pace and youth count.
The second half went pretty much the same way, with Aspull only scoring 28 points. Prenton frustrated Aspull and never gave up and competed at every level. Little Wind finished the half with a try which involved his dad and Craig Elkerton, further frustrating the league champs.
This fixture was played in great spirit by the 20 lads who travelled which included 3 lots of dads and lads, and all 6 were on the pitch at fixture end. With spirit as was displayed against Aspull, Prenton RUFC will rise from the ashes like a Phoenix because our membership will rally together and step up to any challenge for the love of Prenton RUFC.
