Bradford Salem vs. Laund Hill: a game of two halves.

Both sides started with open rugby. LH dominated the scrums early on and this was rewarded with a Tom Egan penalty-kick after just five minutes.

Astute kicking won good territory, but few points. A try by Salem broke the deadlock as they took a 3-7 after 10 minutes. But they quickly realised that any penalties awarded within their own half would be punished as Egan got another 3 points.

This was followed by a well-worked converted try for centre Liam Haines as Salem were shown a yellow card for an offence in the build up to the try.

At 7-13, the visitors looked comfortable but with Tom Bulloch spending 10 minutes in the bin just before half-time Salem scored two quick tries.  LH finished the half camped on the Salem line without success. 19 – 13 after an evenly balanced half.

Turning round with the elements, Salem’s strong running backs proved a difficult handful. LH penalised themselves with another yellow card as James Fox was ruled to have committed foul play and Salem made hay with the overlap.

Forward injuries left Laund Hill running out of substitutes, finishing the game with only 14 men and Salem capitalised on the extra man.

The scrum however remained rampant, resulting in a consolation penalty try at the death.

45 -20 after a disappointing second half.

Focus now turns to Dinnington next week on what promises to be a tasty home tie.
