High flying Ducks

A bright start to 2023 for the Mighty Ducks (2nd XV).

The sun made an appearance as the Huddersfield Laund Hill Mighty Ducks embarked on their first game of 2023, a home fixture against Halifax Vandals.

Vandals came with their usual tenacious approach but were met with a Ducks team full of options, players and new year optimism.

The first half began and Laund Hill looked to be on the front foot from the start.  Solid work from the forwards was backed up by positive running from the backs leading to tries at seemingly every attack in the first 20 minutes.  The game then became more balanced as the Ducks struggled to continue to exert the same level of pressure on the Vandals and they returned a score of their own.

At half time a number of changes were made to the Ducks side thanks to the depth of the flock.  These changes refreshed the team and once again they were on the front foot looking to score at every opportunity.

The Laund Hill team proved to be a real handful for their opponents.  Special mentions from me go to Jacob Holmes who was a constant threat going forward for the Ducks and also Bedders and Piggy who helped out and played for vandals allowing the game to be played with contested scrums.

Ultimately the Laund Hill Mighty Ducks scored 10 tries, 9 converted (sorry for missing one), and conceded 2 unconverted tries for a final score of 68-10.

The Ducks continue their season next week against Bradford Salem at HOME.
