Warrington u19 63 Leigh u19 11
WARRINGTON’S senior colts booked a Lancashire Cup semi final spot with a win over Raging Bull League Two leaders Leigh.
Leigh lead the lower division by some way, but were unable to stop hosts Warrington running in 11 tries on their way to a comfortable victory.
Will Fleetwood accelerated over for the first, which was followed by a steady flow of scores from Cameron Lewis, Sam Bennett, Nathan Beesley, Joe Wilson and two from Max Caldwell as Warrington entered half time 39-6 to the good.
Warrington’s combination of pace, power and physicality shone through as they dominated in the scrums, line outs and rucks to capitalise on their share of possession.
Winger Tom Woodward twice went over after the break, taking a big hit for his trouble, before Sean Callander and Cameron Lewis also crossed for a try.
Jack Gray, Nathan Beesley and Ben Hockenhull added the extras with the boot throughout.
Leigh enjoyed a late flurry of their own and bagged a kick and chase try by way of consolation.
Thirds are on fire
Warrington 3rd 58 Glossop 3rd 7
SKIPPER Sean McDermott’s Warrington third team are proving hot property after handing out another mauling, this time at Glossop’s expense.
“We were really on fire,” said McDermott. “Our forwards took control up front and our backs used the possession, territory and space to maximum advantage.
“It was also good to see a number of players returning after injury.”
Paul Thompson burrowed over for the first, followed by scores from Tony Fretwell, two Matt Drinkwater efforts, Tom Hockenhull and Jon Hughes before the break; Drinkwater adding the extras.
Kyle Carted scooted over after the interval, before Hughes completed his hat-trick with two scores and Dick Kirby swept over from 60 yards.
