Sunday, 3 July 202212'sLeigh MinersAway0-24Despite the scoreline, there were lots of positives for Judes to take away from their encounter with Leigh Miners. For the first quarter, Judes were certainly the better team. They controlled the game well, defended with aggression and played with flair in attack.

Leigh Miners, however, made the most of their opportunities in the first half scoring two converted tries and leading 12-0 at the break.

Judes started the second half well by forcing a drop out and defending strongly but once again, Leigh Miners were able to take advantage of the opportunities that came their way.

Despite the hard work of the Judes lads in the second half, Leigh managed to get over for two more converted tries to make the final score 24-0.
Sunday, 3 July 202218'sLeigh MinersHome18-18Judes welcome Leigh Miners to the Meadow today, it was all set for a tasty affair, after Judes were looking for revenge on our reverse fixture and they breed them big in Leigh as they always produce big packs. Judes showed we have good squad depth today, having a number of players out, but still putting in a competitive performance.

Leigh were first to strike only after a Judes error and recorded 6 points under the sticks. A great break from our Man of the Match Cal Palmer, gave Judes the spark they needed to get their attack going. A strong kick on the last saw Daniel Walsh bearing down on the winger, unfortunately he was penalised for tackling before the winger landed. The game was going from end to end and Leigh’s fullback was heading for our line and only for a try saving tackle by one of our new recruits Stephen, they would have been over. A strong take near our line by George, put us in good stead for our first try, powerful yards from both Cals, who took on the defensive line all game and a strong first run by our latest recruit Lewis, created just the slightest bit of space for Roman to work his magic and weave his way through the defensive line to plonk the ball down under the sticks, converting his own try, levels the score. Judes finish the half strongly especially in defence, with the ref giving us a relieving penalty close to Leigh’s line and with seconds to go to the first half whistle, Judes opt for the 2 which is nailed by Roman to put us in the lead at the interval.

There was nothing between the teams first half, so hopefully Judes could keep up the pressure. Unfortunately the game became a little penalty stricken, which hampered any free flowing rugby. Following a triple penalty in Leigh’s favour it was impossible to hold them out any longer and saw their prop using his strength to crash over, putting Miners in the lead. Judes still tried to stick at it and Brooke found himself with the ball on the last and put in a rushed cross field kick, which turned out to be a cracker bouncing toward the Leigh goal-line, Cal S chased, unfortunately it took a wicked bounce and he couldn’t take it cleanly. Leigh came straight back at us, they’d shown a good kicking game today and the kick on the last was no different. Judes knock-on, although impeded in my opinion, Leigh pounce to scoop up the lose ball to score a further try, this put Leigh 18-8 up, with Judes looking at the wrong end of a score-line. At this point, Judes could have easily thrown the towel in, but the lads brought out their fighting spirit, wanting to make their mark on this game which came across in some aggressive defence. On their attacking set, Judes produced shape and one of the first decent passing attacks of the game, finishing with a brilliant off-load from Logan to Brogan, who pounced over in the corner. Bringing us back within 1 score, Judes attack became ruthless and they had the upper hand back end of the game. Judes spied their chance, with a fantastic break down the flanks by Brogan, who still had the awareness to get a decent ball away to Daniel, who had been waiting for his chance, once he gets the ball there is no stopping him and he raced off to score under the sticks, making an easy conversion for Roman to bring it level 18 a piece. Both teams wanted to win this game, but 2 final sets saw us both hold out and finish the game with a draw.

In fairness, a draw was a fair result today for what was a dramatic game of rugby, both teams just going at it on the pitch. Considering we were short of bodies, the lads gave it everything, with a great come-back from 18-8 down, to make it all square at the death. So proud of the lads for digging deep and pulling those 2 tries back and salvaging a draw from the game, not an easy task over-powering Leigh’s pack at the best of times. Well Done lads, great character and effort shown today.

Sunday, 10 July 202213's - MaroonsChorley PanthersHome32-6It was a lovely warm, sunny morning at the Meadow. The opposition were Chorley Panthers, we were expecting a tough match especially in the conditions. They were a couple of players short so they borrowed a few of ours, this gave great game time to everyone.
It was a bit of a slow start for both teams with a few errors on either side. It was going to be down to the side who were able to compose themselves especially in the final third. Some great tackles by Harry and Jack Worthington keeping Chorley in their own half. A break by Jack to Ellis near to the line and the boy does not miss from there. Billy with the conversion from in front.
Some superb running by Reuben and the usual strong metres made by Zac and Joel and on the last tackle a superb kick from Billy and Harry was able to land on it and score. A suspicion of off side but the bunker confirmed the try. Billy with a great conversion to double the Maroons lead.
The hand brake was definitely off the Maroons now but they needed to be a bit more composed. They didn’t need to try and score from every set, just needed to complete their sets.
The ball was worked up the field and a pass from Jack to Joel Makin 10 metres out, there is no one stopping him. He bulldozed his way over to the right of the posts. He really is a machine when in that position. Billy with the conversion.
A few changes at half time and some great defence from our lads on the Chorley side with Lewis, Edwin and Lennon in the corner stopping a certain Zac try. The boy was not to be denied though and he powered his way through to increase the lead. Billy missing the conversion.
Some great play by Chorley and they made their way up the field with a good line break, a great step and they were over under the posts. A deserved try from them and they were elated. Conversion made.
Zac then ploughed his way over on the left edge after some great passing. Billy converting
The floodgates were now beginning to open as the tiredness crept in from a resolute Chorley side, Caleb scoring on the right edge. Billy converting.
A great solo break from Mikey and near the try line he was ready to pass to a familiar face but then realised they were wearing the wrong kit so he went on his own and went over. Fantastic play.
Then a quick fire double and his hat trick by Ellis round off the scoring.
A great game in tough conditions for everyone. A shout out all our lads who played for Chorley yesterday, they were all fantastic and put in a real shift for them.
Sunday, 10 July 202215'sAshton BearsHome30-10Beautiful morning for a game of rugby at the meadows and the U15s were up for it .
Judes started hard but Ashton came back at them . Judes were struggling to complete a set for most of the 1st half but some great ball play saw Judes take the lead .
2nd half started much the same as the 1st , struggling to complete sets but Judes touched it out and in the end got a convincing win against Ashton.
Judes defence was really good today and ultimately that won Judes the game , keeping the opposition quiet and frustrating them on their attack . Some good hard tackles from both sides but a very good hard competitive game by both sides
Final score 30 v 10
