|Sunday, 12 September 2021||10's - Golds||Newton Storm||Away||40-16||A fresh Sunday morning in St Helens as we met with Newton storm. Judes kicked off the game, Newton Storm knocking on straight away. Judes played the ball, an excellent pass and a great run from Zak Lushchan to score in the first minute. Paddy Kelly converted. 0-6. Both teams drove the next couple of sets up the field, without a score. Before Judes let a Newton player slip through to score a try. No conversion made. 4-6. A few dropped balls from Newton, gave Judes the advantage over the next few sets, but no score. I really don’t think the lads had woken up with it being an early start. But some amazing tackling from Declan Haskayne keeping the Newton team at bay. Half time Newton Storm 4 Wigan St Judes 6. A quick half time team talk, boosted the Jude’s team, more composure from the boys as well as watching the play more. Some excellent running and organization from Zak Lushchan helping Jayden King over the whitewash, Will Cobley converting. 4-12. Judes kept Newton out of the next set, but with fancy footwork from Will Cobley dancing over the try line. Zak Lushchan converting 4-18. Judes forced an error as they applied pressure to the Newton team, Judes turn with the ball, some excellent running and passing of the ball to send Jayden King over for a try. Henlea Baynham converting 4-24. The try of the week came next, Jayden king kicking on the last, Will Cobley can read him like a book and followed the ball, the ball bounced perfectly into Will’s hands to send him crashing over the try line. Jayden king converting. 4-30. 2 tries back-to-back from Newton, converting both 16-30 Again, some great teamwork from the boys, reading each other, sending Jayden King over for his hat trick, Toby Hutchinson narrowly missing the conversion. 16-34 The last try of the game came from the mighty Elliot Molineux, who believed that he could, and he did, running down the wing scoring a full length try. Alfie Jennings converting. 40-16. Full time score Newton storm 16, Wigan St Judes 40. An excellent team effort especially as they all woke up for the second half.

|Sunday, 12 September 2021||11's||Thatto Heath||Home||12-12||Judes resumed the season after the summer break with a tough match against St Helens rivals, Thatto Heath. It took a bit of time for Judes to find their feet in the game with this being their first ever 13-aside match and the introduction of a second marker.|
Thatto Heath piled on the pressure in the first ten minutes and managed to take an early lead. However, Judes worked hard to stay in the game and Joshua Stott was particularly lively especially when he chased his own last-tackle kick and forced Thatto Heath into an error under the sticks. The lads capitalised on this and forced several repeat sets on the Thatto line with Ben Green eventually getting over the line only for the try to be disallowed.
Judes were 12 points down at half time but came out much more determined in the second half with good strong running from the forwards and some solid tackling all round.
Layton Dewhurst worked hard in the second half to create opportunities with the ball and eventually put a perfectly timed kick through for centre, Ben Green, who beat several defenders to ground the ball for Judes' first try of the game. The try was converted by Layton Dewhurst.
This was quickly followed by a second try as Layton Dewhurst sidestepped his way through the defence to bring Judes to within two points of Thatto Heath. Layton was, once again, on form with the boot and was able to convert his try and bring the scores level.
The Judes lads worked hard in defence in the last few minutes of the game and were able to keep Thatto away from the tryline and the match finished as a 12-12 draw.
