What a great day for RUFC. Beautiful weather and the Clubhouse packed to the rafters as they celebrated Ladies Day in aid of the Charity, Hull and East Riding Breast Friends.

All that was needed to make the day perfect was some good and exciting rugby and that requirement was certainly met.

West Leeds went ahead in the first minute following some sloppy handling by with a try in the corner by the Leeds right wing which was converted by the No 10 (0-7).

There followed a period of play where ’s play was littered with mistakes. Poor passing and handling led to another inevitable Leeds score by the full back which again No 10 converted (0-14).

suddenly seemed to come alive and a marvellous break by scrum half
opened up the Leeds defence and went over for a try which converted (7-14). Five minutes later forwards set up a maul near the Leeds line and flanker touched down too far out for the conversion (12-14).

A penalty for Leeds to make the score 12-17 ended the first half.

The second half opened rather quietly and both sides were playing some exciting stuff but both defences were looking solid. Another penalty for Leeds saw them stretch the lead to 12-20 and then, shortly after that they went even further ahead with another try from their full back (12-25).

Not for the first time this season showed their resilience and fighting spirit and they mounted a fight back, firstly with another try from converted by (19-25), followed by a period of sustained pressure on the Leeds line leading to a fine try wide out by (24 – 25).

The supporters held their breath as lined up the conversion attempt. He didn’t strike the ball as well as he would have liked but over it went to give the lead for the first time (26-25).Talk about nerves of steel!!

Back came Leeds to try to breach the Beverley line but some fine tackling particularly from youngsters and , both of whom made game saving tackles at the death,saw them home by 26 points to 25.

Final Score : 26 West Leeds 25
