Kippax U11's vs East Leeds
Another lacklustre performance from Kippax saw them fall to their heaviest defeat against a well structured East Leeds team.
A huge crowd turned up along with the boys in blue , Mister Ed and a few rogue guess the score ticket sellers, keep an eye open for them, they wear mushy pea loafers and creep up on you from behind. Mehmet turned up on his flying carpet.
Going down to an early try, kippax made too many basic errors and allowed East Leeds to dominate possession. Jacko got his mad up and forced the turn over with a booming tackle, with star man Josh Thornton ripping it up and barging over for a great try after a 60 yards charge. King Kong Kirky showed much more pace and power than his old man ever did, to make some great yards, another strong performance from him this week. Jumping in at acting half,
Jacko tried to pick the pace up but was let down by some slow support. Tank was Tank but needed more ball as did Andy Hartshorn, again showing great potential. Will Wrighton was fantastic. Wingers Bailey and Junior again did their job in defence but had limited ball out wide to take the defence on. Seventies knee brace throwback Freddy Foy tackled everything that came at him, working well with Jez Price, who led the way again and again with some solid straight running
just like his dads favourite player, Leeds legend, Roy Dickinson (Carl also came sporting a classy back comb boufont hair style in homage to big Roy). Jacko took charge and was unlucky not to get over. East Leeds then made a 60 yards break only to be thwarted by a last gasp tackle by Will Wrighton. Its Back to Basics for Kippax this week ahead of a tough challenge against Featherstone Lions. Man Of The Match: Josh Thornton.
