Beverley ARLFC suffered their second defeat in a row as they went down 79-12 to East Leeds.
This was a huge win for East Leeds at the expense of Beverley, their first victory since April.
As the scoreline suggests, this was a tough day at the office for Scott Taylor and his side. Beverley’s performance was disappointing despite the absence of a few front-line players.
Both halves were of the match were similar. Beverley were guilty of conceding penalty after penalty while struggling to contain a strong home pack.
The first half saw the Beverley trail 37-6 as the whistle blew. East Leeds posted tries from Gareth Lacey, Adam Keedy, Nathan Conroy (2) and also Jason Prestley (3).
Scoring in the game was punctuated by a Francis Coggle try for Beverley. He looked lively when introduced alongside the hardworking Josh Poskitt and Ash Shaw.
Lewis Miller was unlucky to have not registered a try after being put through by Josh Poskitt. However, he was judged to have lost the ball in the act of scoring.
The struggle continued for Beverley ARLFC in the second half. Beverley’s only score coming from a Steve Connolly touchdown.
This stemmed the tide of the East Leeds scores by Nathan Conroy (3), Jason Priestley, Jake Moss, Anthony Ward and Sean Ward.
Taylor had little to say post-match. Instead, he felt it best to draw a line under the experience and prepare for next week.
Beverley will need to re-group quickly. Their next fixture will be a tough encounter with the new league leaders, West Bowling.
Last time the sides met it was West Bowling who were won, beating Beverley 42-26 in the reverse fixture.
