Leek travelled to our friends at Burton for our first cup game of the season. We only had 13 players with Burton having 26 due to a cancellation of a fixture. The coaches agreed to play 13 a side with Burton having unlimited substitutions so all the girls got good game time. Leek started strongly with Burton keeping us at bay with a number of strong tackles. Our phased rugby and quick ball soon paid dividends and we started to score a few early scores. This was the pattern the rest of the half. In the 2nd half Burton got more and more into the game and only some sterling defence stopped many more Burton scores. The score was not quite a true reflection of the game as we converted all our trys which makes a huge difference to the score. Thanks to Burton and their referee for all of their efforts in the game and a massive well done to our girls for working so hard.
