Match Preview – Leeds Tykes (A)

a look ahead to SATURDAY’s game

leeds tykes vs rosslyn park, Saturday 11th march, KO 1.30PM

The 1st XV are headed north on Saturday to take on Leeds Tykes.

This week’s opposition sit 13th in the table having won just 4 of their 20 matches this season. After a good start to the season that saw them win 3 of their first 6, they have won just once since, as they completed the double over bottom placed Hull in January. In recent weeks, Leeds failed to pick up a win across their last 4 attempts, however they did manage to grab an impressive bonus point against the league leaders in Reading last week.

The reverse fixture in November at The Rock saw Park pick up a comfortable 40-12 bonus point victory over the West Yorkshire outfit with tries from Will Glover, Austin Hay, Seb Strang and Tom Stanton as well as a Charlie Walker brace.

The 1st XV head into Saturday’s contest having won 4 of the last 6 and are looking to build off the back of the narrow win over Birmingham Moseley last week as they head into the final 5 matches of the season.
