Crosfields v Wigan St Judes

On a wet and wild day in Warrington this was always going to be a game with low skill level and up the jumper stuff ...however this was not the case as from the off both teams showed plenty skill on the ball. After tough opening exchanges Crosfields gained the advantage with a fortunate bounce of the ball and went in to score first. Shortly after Crosfields ran another try in and it was all too easy as Judes defence and line speed wasn't up to scratch. 8-0 Judes defence started to toughen up and forced an error resulting nearly scoring themselves with one of the lads finding it difficult to retain the ball and just missed out on scoring ... This would result in lapse of concentration and Crosfields racing up the field to score in the corner 12-0 . Judes started to pile pressure on and got a lucky break when Jake sent a defence the wrong way with a dummy and scored under the sticks 12-6 HT.

There was another tough period for both sides in the second half as rain started to pour and the ball came slippy the game going through a spell of errors... One error was costly for Crosfields as from a scrum in their own half saw Rio Roberts pick the ball up from play the ball and race over the line Judes back in the game at 12-12. Just when Judes were staring to get on top unfortunate injuries meant they were down to 12 and soon to be 11 this made it all too easy for Crosfields which saw them go over the line 18-12. Another injury and this time there was no coming back Crosfields finish the game with ease and the final score was 26-12 .

Halton farnworth RedsAway10-6
On a wet and windy day. Most of the northwest pitches closed. Jude’s braves the conditions to put in a gritty performance to topple Halton in there own back yard. Halton in fairness started the stronger and pinned Jude’s down for most of the 1st half in there own 20. Jude’s where there own worst enemies playing too much rugby in there own half and not respecting the ball. Halton broke down the left hand side and with a grubber went over. Conversation made it 6-0 at half time.
Coaches discussion with the lads was around respect of the ball and simple plays in poor conditions. And credit to them the 2nd half was as good as I’ve seen all year. Defence was outstanding and off the back of a Halton mistake Jude’s went over. Conversion missed 6-4. Jude’s again went on the attack and a great passage of play with ball in hand saw Jude’s go over again. Conversion over. 10-6. A final 5 mins saw Halton parked on Jude’s line. 3 sets of 6 on the line finally put an end to the game. Character and grit today was evident. With all lads putting a shift in. Final score 10-6 to Judes

West BankAway16-18

West Bank 18 Wigan st Jude’s golds 16

With the pitches down at the meadow being shut West Bank kindly stepped in to host us!

In true golds style the boys took a good 5 mins to wake up and in this time West Bank snook in with the opening try of the game.

With the rain battering down there was a few slippy hands and knock ons from both sides and with West Bank gaining the ball back they flew down the wing gaining yards, a few passes and lost ball saw West Bank go in for a try where the player fly kicked the ball and went over the line. 

Some really hard runs from Harrison Oakes and some good hands from the lads saw mason chisnall go over for Jude’s!
West Bank saw a gap to go over for the 3rd time and with all their kicks on target they were ahead 18-6

The start of the second half saw Jude’s gaining the ball and making good yards deacon charnock was up in their half and looking a threat to West Bank 

Mason chisnall was determined to get his second try of the game with his signature hand off and some fancy footwork he handed off everyone who got in his way and then Oscar Ropers stepped upto to get the kick!
With Jude’s dominating the second half completely despite the refs best efforts Jude’s found themselves up at west banks line again and after a few tries to break their defence it was time to send in big jack to get Jude’s 3rd try of the game well done to Bradley banks for stepping up to take the kick unfortunately just shy of target.

Well done boys you all showed great passion and determination today

Golborne ParksideAway32-24
St Judes Golds travelled to a very wet and soggy Golborne Parkside on Wednesday evening. After the downpour of rain over the previous days, we were happy for the rain to stop in time for the match.
A very strong Golborne side started the match, running a try in straight away, to our boys dismay they had another 39 minutes to play a match totally caked in mud from head to toe. The pitch was like a mud bath.
Judes passed the ball about really well with some good runs to get us to the top of the field, before turning the ball over to Golborne who ran the Judes boys all over the park to score their second try. An excellent run from Zak Lushchan sent Jayden King over for the first try on the Judes score sheet. Judes did well to keep Golborne out for the next set of six, returning with the ball and splashes of mud from under their feet, Jack Stanton ran the ball in well offloading to an eagerly waiting Jayden King who ran in his second try of the game. The boys defended a couple of sets without letting a try in from the Parkside team. Judes attack was awesome, with some excellent running and handing off from Alex Griffiths, Manny Campbell-Webb and Toby hutchinson, who offloaded to Jayden King who went over for is third try of the match. Golborne followed with another try for them. Judes attack was again on top form as they ran down the field to pass to Thomas Atherton who put his speedy legs on to duck and dive past the opposition, to score a try of his own.
Some massive tackles came from Jayden Johnstone who was in on nearly every tackle of the game, pushing back the Golborne attack to keep them out.
Judes next set saw them right on the Golborne line, but they failed to score as an excellent tackling technique from them kept us out. Golborne again ran down the middle of the park, to score another try. A great run from Thomas Liptrot who offloaded to Jayden Johnstone, who then offloaded to Toby Hutchinson before he passed the ball to Jayden King who went over the whitewash yet again.
Golborne’s next set sent them over for the next try. Judes next set saw them being pushed back with some massive tackles, but super Will Cobley got us out of trouble by running in and out with his fast feet to get an excellent try. Golborne repeated with a try, before Alex Griffiths ran down the wing making some yards to send Jayden
King over for yet another try.
Golborne got their last try of the match, then Judes were quick of the mark to tackle and keep the Golborne side away from the try line.
A good run from Toby Hutchinson who ran towards the white wash, was just pushed back before he could get the ball down, but he was able to offload to Jayden King went over for his try number 5.
It was getting dark and with only a couple of minutes to go Judes fought hard to keep Parkside out.
The game was concluded with Jayden King running all over the park to score the final try of the game.
Overall a very good game of Rugby League from both sides. The St Judes boys are growing in ability and confidence that is lovely to see. The boys managed by 3 great coaches who put their heart and sole into making these boys have fun and enjoy their rugby.
