OLD Brods under 14s claimed the derby spoils with a 44-0 victory over Old Rishworthians.
Brods quickly made their intentions clear with strong drives by Corey Greenwood and Josh Forest. The ball was shipped out to Harry Dunne who crossed to open up a 5-0 lead.
Good pressure on the Rishworth side continued allowing Ollie Anderson to cross for the next try.
Good handling skills by the Brods as a whole created the next try by Peter Ashton taking the score to 15-0 at the break.
The second half started with Brods pushing uphill and hard work by the forwards at the breakdown and the backs’ movement of the ball kept them on the front foot.
This was followed by an excellent cross kick by George Ayrton and a chip forward by Tom Wilson allowed Dunne to touchdown before Dunne quickly followed with his hat-trick under the posts, converted by Wilson.
Newcomer Alex Snowball showed his speed as a loose ball was kicked forward and chased and a quick pass to Alfie Blackhall resulted in the next try, to take the score to 32-0.
Brods continued to keep their defence tight whilst continuing their attacking play and a great offload by Luke Chadwick played into the hands of the speeding Jack Farley who crossed, converted by Wilson.
Rishworthians did not give up and pressured the Brods line, but the hosts stuck to their game plan and the final phase of play saw Joe Sealey crash over the line for the final try.
Sam Burford-Eyre and Harry Robinson continued to fight manfully up front for Rishies but several missed tackles did not help their cause.
