Siddal entertained stanningley on a lovely sunny morning at chevinedge , the leeds lads always proved to be a handful in the past so today there would be no exception .
Stan kicked off , siddal were driving back at them with real gusto , the siddal lads though were met by a solid wall with some big tackles thrown at them .
Siddal won a penalty , jake Parkinson had a really useful bulldozing charge , siddal though coughed up possession after the offload was spilled .
Siddal were caught offside .
Dec knapping put his customary big hit from his centre birth to dislodge the ball and therefore gaining his team the ball . the whistle happy ref gave stan offside ( shouts from the crowd was let it flow ref sir ) .
Frankie gaukroger had a lovely scoot as he spotted the gap , siddals kick was dealt with and now stan were on the charge . tigerish harvey crossley took down one of their big lads ( just like a hyena bringing its prey , good to see )
Warren buffet easily dealt with the grubber and made some good ground , he won a penalty also .
The next phase stan had the ball they looked dangerous only for Kieran raistrick to manage to knock him into touch for a good piece of work .
From the resulting scrum archie awty and bailey greenwood had big metre eating gains , after the turnover siddal gave stan back to back penalties with an offside and a high shot .
Ethan bush (bushy)had a great gallop from the tap play the ball , his run set a superb platform . jake smith received the ball 10metres out his momentum and power took him over the whitewash , but he had to twist his body to register the first score . it was a really good effort by him , young knappers ( dec) kicked the two for a 6-0 lead .
Frankie and bailey took the ball forward really well to set up another big chance for siddal , jake smith bagged his brace with another superb run . henry ogden kicked the two for a 12-0 hard earned advantage .
Archie a had to leave proceedings with a leg injury , dec had the last word in the 1st half with a half break , ref blew for the break and what was a good siddal effort against a good leeds side .

Stan scored early in the 2nd half after some weak tackling to score under the sticks , no problem with the kick 12-6 .
Siddal dropped the ball in their danger zone but they kept out stan . warren scooped up well under pressure . Harvey and frankie took their team into a safe area .
Warren again caught the ball after the stan attack and brought the ball out really strongly , henry made the half break and was awarded a penalty . jake Parkinson charged for the line but was unlucky to lose the ball , it looked like it was ripped but the ref saw otherwise .
A whooping confident stan team spilled the ball on tackle 1 , this time the siddal lads cheered their error . this was a good opportunity for siddal 20 metres out , siddal won another penalty for a shoulder charge . the bulldogs though bombed a chance for being too over enthusiastic and were penalised for obstruction .
Stan couldn’t make touch with the kick , bushy caught the ball and set off on a fantastic sprint he fed parky who had the stan lads grabbing at shadows . he finished off under the posts , henry had no problem with the kick . 18-6
The latter stages of the game was a scrappy affair both sides not making use of possession so the time elapsed in siddals favour and that was it a really good victory for the Halifax lads over the leeds lads .
