Match Report Saturday 24th February - Championship North Merit League

The Old Rishworthians Development team extended their recent winning form with an emphatic 9 try demolition of Otley 2nds at Copley.

Rishworthians got off to the perfect start with a try in the first couple of minutes from winger Ollie Marshall and from then on dominated the game with 4 further tries in the half from scrum half Will McDonnell, full back Lee Atkinson and a brace from forward Tom Jowle. With Joe Billing adding 2 conversions, the half time score was 29-7.

Half Time Rishworthians 29 - 7 Otley

More of the same in the second half with prop Ryan Mudd crashing over, and then James McHugh fooled the Otley defence to stroll over. Otley managed to get another try on the board but Rish continued to dominate and scored 2 further excellent tries from skipper Kurt Sutcliffe and teenager Ethan Pollard. Joe Billing slotted another 3 conversions to make the final score 55-12.

Rishworthians are away next week at bottom of the table Ilkley, and are looking for a fourth win on the bounce.
