High-scoring draw as Gladiators host Lions
By Jim Green
There was a fantastic game involving the U9s against Westhoughton Lions with lots of tries between two well-matched teams in a 56-56 draw.
It was an excellent performance all round with Thomas Davies continuing to impress with his desire to make metres with the ball in hand, solid contributions from Conrad Stevenson, Matthew Turner and Ruby Partington, and Elliot Shotton playing his first game of the season showed promise with good concentration and involvement in play.
Special mentions to debutants Millie King-Magee and Lewis Hawkins, who was deservedly named man of the for good defence, blistering pace and strong running in attack.
