Goole 22 v 10 Laund Hill

Unlike the fog-bound home fixture, conditions at Goole were fine and everyone managed to see the action.

LH started brightly and Egan’s sniping run from the base of the scrum was denied by a last-ditch tackle from Goole’s full back. Forced by good territorial kicking, the game swung Goole’s way and LH showed ill-discipline conceding 5 penalties in the first 15 minutes to allow the home team to create sustained pressure, resulting in a converted penalty and two unanswered tries to take a 15-0 lead.

At set plays LH were having the better of both scrum and line out (veteran Appleby leaping like a salmon), and forced play to the try line. Goole conceded a yellow, and a well worked line out catch and drive saw Ben Hill across the whitewash just before half-time.

Continued LH pressure in the second half pushed Goole back and the referee punished their continued ill- discipline with another yellow. LH besieged the Goole line, but keeping it tight (rather than flinging it wide to use the overlap) yielded no points.

With the return of the carded players, the end to end period was marred by errors with defences on top. The impasse was finally broken by a converted Goole try. Goole had a meltdown with the referee and conceded another yellow.

Showing a fighting spirit that has been missing over recent weeks, LH dominated the final period. Two good breaks being foiled by the last tackle, but in their best move impressive centre Liam Haines broke through and whipped the ball to Jacob Holmes, making his first appearance of the season on the wing, for a fine try.

The game finished rooted on the Goole try line but the home defence held out.

All in all, a disappointing loss, but with more positives than negatives that the coaching team can take into next week’s must win game against Roundhegians.
