Old Brodleians under 15s hosted local rivals Old Rishworthians and ran out comprehensive 64-0 winners.

Brods made an early attack with the ball quickly passed out wide to Connor Pollard who had Jack Farley in support to take the first try, Tom Wilson converting.

Despite Rishies defensive efforts, Harry Dunne scored under the posts, converted by Wilson, and as Brods kept up the pressure winger Jack Farley was able to score a further try before the strength of forward Luke Chadwick made it 24-0.

Brods dominated in the scrums and their ball handling and speed of play were too much for Rishworthians who were unable to stop the strength and pace of Dunne, who scored a further two tries, converted by Wilson.

Wilson himself then added the final try of the first half to take the score to 45-0.

The second half saw Rishworthians return with more attacking play and Brods found themselves having to defend their own line.

A great counter attack, and relentless effort in the forwards, saw Joe Sealey cross with Wilson adding the extras.

A few silly penalties allowed Rishworthians to make some ground, but great tackles by Scott Speak and Toby Robins prevented them from causing any damage.

The speed of Pollard’s return play proving too much for the visitors as he scored his second try before Farley wrapped up the try-scoring, Wilson converting.

Old Brods under 11s were involved in a tight game with Huddersfield, who ran away with it in the final quarter to win 35-19.

Brods made their usual slow start but pulled together with strong drives from Daniel Wood, Rhys Pope and Rohaan Aftab and tackles from Sam Harrison, and Thomas Sunderland.

Ben Beverley kicked well from fly half but it wasn’t enough to take the spoils on the day.

Brods scorers were Fred Woodhouse, Rohaan Aftab and Thomas Sunderland.

Brods under 10s side turned in another good performance during their 10-8 win over Huddersfield.

Early pressure saw Tom Parkin touch down after linking up with Oliver Chin. Chin then scored himself after a pass down the line from Tom Inman. Parkin made a dash down the wing to score the third.

Toby Laurie then made a run and tested the visitors defence and James Thackray dived on a loose ball to score. Cliff spotted a gap and galloped down the line to touch down, before Inman crossed just before half time.

Brods had the benefit of fresh legs with Dan Leahy, Jackson Wood, Joe MacDonald and Ben Hodgson all coming on to score.

In the final quarter, further tries followed from Cliff, Leahy and Parkin for his hat trick. In the dying minutes, a great solo effort from Hodgson saw him score the final try.
