Match Report – Hunslet vs Swinton Lions

HUNSLET HAWKS 16   SWINTON LIONS 28 IAN RIGG at South Leeds Stadium A good performance saw the Lions take the points in a somewhat scrappy game at times. The Hawks took the lead after just three minutes when Jack Render scored in the left corner and Joe Sanderson added a good wind assisted conversion from the touchline. The scores were level on twelve minutes when the impressive Louis Brogan took three defenders over the line with him to score to the left of the posts and Dan Abram added the conversion against the strong breeze. Four minutes later the Lions were in the lead when a lovely short pass from Matty Wilkinson cut out two defenders for Lewis Charnock to score and again Abram made no mistake with the conversion. Just after the restart from this try Rhodri Lloyd combined with Mike Butt to see the Lions full back cross in the right corner but the final pass was judged forward. Hunslet hooker Harvey Whiteley went over on twenty minutes but lost the ball in his attempt to score. Loanee hooker George Roby extended the Lions lead just before the half time hooter when he went over from short range and Abram converted as the hooter sounded. Jack Hansen extended the Lions lead three minutes into the second half when he scored under the posts after a thirty-metre break by Jayden Hatton down the right and again this was converted by Abram. George Roby was placed on report on fifty-one minutes following an incident in a tackle and from the resulting penalty and pressure on the line Wayne Reittie scored a try in the right corner but the conversion attempt from Sanderson hit the crossbar and bounced out. The Lions fourth try came on sixty-six minutes when Mike Butt finished off a good passing movement to score on the left, but Abram could not convert this one. Lewis Charnock was sent to the sin bin with seven minutes left and Hunslet added another try with four minutes left with Reittie adding his second and Sanderson made no mistake with his conversion from the touchline.

Match Report – Swinton Lions vs London Skolars

SWINTON LIONS 58 LONDON SKOLARS 14 IAN RIGG Heywood Road Sunday The Lions got back to winning ways running in ten tries against a dogged Skolars team who dug in after last weeks heavy defeat. Lions took the lead after five minutes when a good passing movement saw Lewis Charnock dance his way through the defence to score on the left and Dan Abram converted. Three minutes later they added a second when a good passing movement ended with Max Roberts going over on the left and Abram converted again, and the scoring continued when Abram and Liam Forsyth combined to send Ben Heyes over in the corner and again Abram was on target. Lewis Hatton was held up a few minutes later but Skolars had their first good chance down the right, but Jerome Yates lost the ball in a good position with the line open. Skolars were constantly attacking the line and on twenty-five minutes Yates got his rewards when he collected the bouncing ball to score in the corner and Will Ramsey added the conversion. Within a minute the Lions hit back when Charnock and Jack Hansen combined to send to send Lewis Else racing away to score and Abram converted this too and with six minutes to go the to the break Charnock added his second going over by the posts. Roberts added his second try within six minutes of the start of the second half touching down on the left after a very scrappy passage of play and again this was converted. This was quickly followed by a second try for Heyes who ran away from two defenders to score, and this was also converted by Abram. Skolars were starting to ask questions of the Lions defence again and forced two goal line dropouts within two sets before the Lions defence was made to pay when Aaron Small forced his way over on the left, but Ramsey saw his conversion attempt bounce back off the posts and away. The Lions then struck back with two quick tries when Billy Brickhill crossed on the right on sixty-five minutes and Abram converted and then Roberts scored his third after Louis Brogan had gone close, but Abram could not convert from the touchline. The Lions shot themselves in the foot in defence and gifted a try to Skolars winger Leighton Ball who collected a wild pass to score in the corner, but Ramsey could not convert this one from the touchline and the final try came to Lions captain Rhodri Lloyd when he finished off a move created by Hansen to score to the right of the posts and Abram completed the scoring with the close-range conversion.
