|Wigan St Judes ARLFC – Match Reports|
|Leigh Miners A||Away||16-58|
|The harsh dismissal of Craig Bithell on 58 mins was the turning point for the new look St Judes NWML side, that included no fewer than 7 new signings.|
Up until the sending off St Judes were well and truly in the game trailing Leigh Miners by only 18-10 curtesy of 2 Robbie King tries.
Nathan Collier was harshly refused his debut score and the home side eventually took advantage of the extra man pulling away from St Judes to run out eventual 58-16 winners with Ash Marshall crossing for a late consolation score.
Positives for St Judes were the outstanding performances of the returning Josh Rogerson, and debutants Regan Richardson Liam Reeve.
|Judes Masters played against The Rugby League All Stars team as a curtain Raiser to the Swinton v York Championship Game in Sale. Former Leeds Rhinos half back Rob Burrow played for the All Stars which also included alot of Ex Proffesional Players. Both sides played some excellent Rugby in humid conditions. Judes tries came the way of Shaun Hilton, Lee Lucas, Simon Robinshaw and Paul McCormick.|
|Bank Quay Bulls||Home||36-6|
|Final Score: Judes 36 v Bank Quay Bulls 6|
Our second meeting with Bank Quay this month saw us make another perfect start with Reece Stanton scoring on the very first set, after he spotted a gap open up in the defence and used his sheer speed to burst through and score. Converted by Callum Silcock, we were set up nicely 6-0. Judes put some great moves on, but good defence from Bank Quay kept us at bay. After a penalty for offside, Judes were attacking again and Alfie used his pace to shoot to the line, twisting and turning in tackle to ground the ball, but the ref deemed it lost in the act of scoring and denied the points, if we could have gone to our video ref, it would have been given!! Great defence from Judes trap Bank Quay in their own 40 and they are forced to kick themselves out of trouble. Alfie returns with interest and gets a smack in the chops for his efforts. Judes were close enough to rack up more points, the Bank Quay player got a fingertip to the ball, which gave us a scrum and another 6 at the line. The extra tackles weren’t needed though, as great hands out to Reagan Sumner who blazed off to score in the corner. Unfortunately, a good conversion attempt hit the uprights, but we were 10 nil up. The rest of the first half was spent in the Bank Quay half, but it was as though Judes were trying too hard to score and were pulled a couple of times for forward passes. We did go in at the break 10 nil up.
Second half we needed to mix it up and get back to what we did well in the first quarter. Great drives from our captain and Theo, who it was good to see back after his spell off with injury, set up for the ball to be shifted to Reece the Beast Stanton, who is super human with the ball in hand and just runs with defenders all over his back and still had to the strength to make it to the line and reach over one handed to score. A superb kick over into space from Callum, but the opposition get to the ball first, but robust defence force him into touch. Although we knock-on and surrender, a cheeky intercept from Callum, puts us straight back on the attack, fast hands down the line to Reagan Sumner who had a stroll in to score his second. Minutes later Reagan was scoring back to back tries and his hatrick of the game after a solid drive from Junior, got us in the opposition half and played out to Reagan who still had ground to chew up, almost dancing his way through the defence to score under the posts. After a couple of Judes errors the Bulls were attacking, thankfully their last pass to the winger went to ground and rolled over the side line and denied them a try. Judes reply by building pressure the opposite end and Alfie Whittle jinked in the line to speed off to the whitewash and wouldn’t be denied this time with his fancy footwork, plonking the ball down backwards. Our final try of the game came from Callum Silcock, who threw a humongous dummy, which was bought 100% and he shot through the gap to score a fantastic try. Although he didn’t convert his own try, he had kicked well all game. Bank Quay annoyingly did have the last say of the game, after another good kick over from Callum, was knocked on by the Bulls, but they were outrageously given the scrum and a fumble by Judes, saw the ball run loose and Bank Quay gobble up and race away to score at the death, we’d won the game 36-6, but are always determined to keep our score-sheet clean.
Another solid performance and good win to retain our top spot in the table. A bit scrappy in places, but a good 7 try haul, was a dominant win.
Today’s man of the match chosen by Bank Quay, went to Alfie Whittle, strong in attack today and ran some great lines. This lad is right back up there, only thing he’s been missing lately, is getting over that whitewash, but he managed it today twice!
|Judes lost out in a 4 point double header 14-8 against a strong Saddleworth side. Thursday night we only had 12 fit players and managed to muster up 14 for this mornings game which is a credit to the toughness and togetherness of the team. In a game that could have gone either way, Saddleworth’s extra bodies were the difference. Jimmy Bradshaw was taken to hospital late on with a badly broken nose and excessive bleeding and we wish him a speedy recovery.|
Well done lads, a great effort from each and every one of you.

|Rochdale Mayfield Mustangs||Away||40-10|
|WIGAN ST JUDES 40 ROCHDALE MAYFIELD MUSTANGS 10 (AWAY)|
The Golds travelled to Rochdale today for our second meeting with The Mustangs in two weeks.
The boys started really strongly and within eight minutes the lads had a healthy lead of 14-0.
The first try came from good drives from Malachi Price and Keegan Boyd before Corey Roden hit Taylor Kerr out at Centre today. Taylor found winger Tom Anderson who was tackled just shy of the try line so a quick scoot from Taylor Kerr was all it took to start the scoring. Corey Roden’s kick making it 0-6.
The second try coming in the very next set, a hard, long drive from forward Jake Hare got the Golds into great field position then slick hands again saw Tom Anderson again close to the line before strong Prop Forward, Elton Paplekaj, blasted through for our second. The kick just sailing wide. 0-10
The strong start continued with powerful running from Keegan Boyd and Luis Houghton getting us upfield before Oliver Wright scored an acrobatic effort in the corner that Tommy Makinson would have been proud of! His kick just sailing wide 0-14
Following the great start, the boys seemed to get ahead of themselves and a little complacent, a knock on then a sloppy head tackle saw us piggy - back our opponents upfield. A great kick from our opponents saw them go over in the corner. Kicked missed, 4-14.
Following this try, we managed to cross the line many more times but our game was not as slick or urgent as it usually is. We could all say ‘A win’s a win’ but we want to see the lads produce their best rugby at all times, not when it suits. Elton Paplekaj took the long walk around 20 minutes in after poor discipline saw him sin binned. Very unusual for Elton, frustration boiling over.
The next two tries came from Malachi Price, the first from the halfway line, a tap from a Golds penalty was all it took to see the big man power over on the right. Again, the kick sailing wide and taking us in at halftime 4-18.
Mal then restarted the scoring in the second half, a try coming from fantastic hands with Tom Hill, Mason Fillingham and Oliver Wright spreading the ball quickly wide and through speed and strength Mal flying down the wing and scoring under the sticks, untouched. Corey sinking the two, 4-24.
Next to go over and deservedly so was Powerhouse second rower, Keegan Boyd, who scored back to back tries in a matter of five minutes. Strong running through the middle saw him get over the halfway line, he looked to be stopped before worming his way out of the oppositions grasp and carrying on a tremendous run to go over in the left corner. Oliver Wright adding the extras 4-30. His second was from a superb flat ball from Stand Off Corey Roden creating a gap just wide enough for Boydy to slip through and run 40 yards to place the ball down under the stick. Corey sinking the kick 4-36
Four penalties on our own line followed. Some of them we felt a little harsh but, the lads were sucked in on the left and Mayfield capitalised on our sloppy structure and went over in the corner. Sinking the kick, 10-36. Feeling a little ripped off, a comment to the ref saw our second yellow of the match with Mason Fillingham’s game ending early.
The Judes finished the game with a quick scoot from Malachi sealing his hattrick and bringing the final score to 4-40.
Great score for the outsider looking in but for coaches and parents who know what skill this team can produce it was very disappointing to see a lower level performance out there today. There were moments of magic particularly from Oliver Wright, Taylor Kerr and Tom Hill who gave huge defensive performances and worked hard all the way through. Big Mal Price and Austin Daniel forcing Captain Oliver Wright to accept the Captain’s Award today! And for good reason too!
But, as a team, we will need to bring more if we want to overcome our biggest rivals next week. Onwards and upwards.
We go back to the top of the Prem with a game in hand! #UTJ

St.Judes v St.Pats
Match day at the Meadow saw Judes hosting Pats in the Quarter final of the Development cup.
Judes are slowly getting back to how they started the season but looked shaken from the start. St.Pats kept forcing the errors from Judes and getting the ball in great position on the pitch . Judes were forcing passes and not looking after the ball but kept Pats at bay. Judes muscled up in defence even though a determined Pats team were throwing the ball about well and running it hard .
Judes drew 1st blood after a mistake from Pats by picking the ball up in midfield and crossing for the 1st try of the game .
Pats kept Judes rather quiet in the 1st half even though they couldn't take advantage of the Judes mistakes and because of this Pats had the confidence to play.
Judes started the 2nd half in a different mood , running hard and throwing the ball about well . In defence they were great , 2 n 3 man tackles with some great single efforts thrown in .
Pats came close to scoring again in the 2nd half on a few occasions but Judes kept them out keeping a clean sheet in this quarter final .

Burtonwood 16 vs Wigan st Jude’s golds 30
Judes kicked off the game and showed Burtonwood what to expect with the first set. Judes waisted no time as soon as they took the ball, Harrison Oakes powering over for the first try of the game and comfortably kicked the conversion. The big hits kept coming from the judes lads but Burtonwood managed to break are defence and scored. The score were equal it was time to ramp it up. Judes on the attack Harrison Oakes made a break making good yards with Bradley Banks taking the ball over the line. Judes wern't relenting and on the next attack Back Myers put the ground work in with a superb run and Deacon Charnock used his fancy footwork to take in another try. Burtonwood were holding it together they sent in the big forwards and produced another try. Judes regrouped some great ball movement and some nifty feet saw Aston Bailey go in the corner.
The second half started with Burtonwood kicking off and a great take by Kian Seddon saw us on the attack but forced in to touch judes turned over to Burtonwood. Both teams kept up a strong defence Oscar Roper unlucky not score but a great takle stopped him in his tracks. The game started to get tasty Burtonwood were giving it all to fight back. Judes hadn't finished great hands got the ball to Aston Bailey who put his foot down to take in his 2nd. Conversion taken by Oscar Roper with the scored widening.
Burtonwood wasn't finished they again sent the big lads in and over they went for a try. One last push from Judes lads as they knew the game was closing to an end deacon scooted and went in for the last try of the game with Kian Seddon converting. The game concluded and judes golds take away another win.
