Leeds City College secured local bragging rights

Leeds City College were looking forward to this game when the fixtures were released back in September to see who would gain the bragging rights as the best team in Leeds.

Leeds Building College had a pleasing 2010, they gained promotion after building a partnership with Hunslet Hawks with Steven Parnell coaching the squad.

As the game started Leeds City College quickly began to take control of the game, the impressive Leeds City College pack dominated the Leeds Building College attack from the kick off, this set the trend to the game.

Leeds City College scored their first try of the game after 5 minutes, when prop forward Ian Fox got on the end of a break by impressive half back Jordan Anderson; who offloaded to supporting full back Issac Usman; who in turn tipped on the ball to Fox. The try was successfully converted by winger Jordan Rivers.

Winger Joe Baker scored the second try of the game, when stand-off Kain Riley recognised an opportunity down the short side and linked up with strong running centre Raufat Bashir, who burst through the line and linked up with his winger Baker to score in the corner. River converted the difficult conversion.

Influential Leeds Rhinos Academy hooker Luke Teasdale got his reward for some direct running from dummy half as he was able to attract defenders to him and pass a crisp ball to his Captain Dwaine McRae who worked tirelessly all game. McRae then offloaded the ball to Anderson who scored under the posts. Rivers converted the try.

Leeds City College were fully in control of the game by half time with a 30-0 score line. Centre Douglas Foster who has been consist all season managed to get over the line, as did Anderson for his second try of the game from a 40 meter break. River successfully converted the try.

The second half followed a similar pattern as the first half as Leeds City College dominated the score board. Leeds Rhinos trialist Brad Cox got his rewards for making a number of breaks when he linked up with Teasdale to score the first of his three tries in the game.

Leeds City College half backs Anderson and Riley directed the Leeds City Colleges attack that enabled them to dominate field position. Leeds Building College were just getting out of their half, when aggressive front row forward Joe McGechaen smartly ripped the ball one on one from an attacking Leeds Building College player, McGechaen then showed a great deal pace to sprint from the half way line to score.

Leeds City College scored five more tries as substitute Ashton Waterhouse scored on his debut after supporting a break by fellow debutant second row forward Declan Tomlinson, who made a superb break after fending off a number of defenders to offload to Waterhouse for him to do the easy job of putting ball under the post. Captain McRae completed his brace, Usman managed to get on the score sheet and Cox completed his hat trick of tries. Rivers converted three of the tries and loose forward Will Milner converted three of the tries too.

Leeds Building College scored two consolation tries after a tough day at the office with tries from John Jones and James Woods with Woods converting the tries.

The Man of the Match went to Leeds City College second row forward Brad Cox who busted the defensive line a number times. He was closely pushed by Anderson, McGechean, McRae, Teasdale, and substitutes Tomlinson and Tom Logan

Leeds City College Coach Jonny Wainhouse commented, "We were impressive today, the players have bought into the systems and they are now reaping the rewards. It is shame you can only have one Man of the Match because there was a number of players that could have had it today. A result like this gives us confidence going into the biggest test of the season against Wakefield College next week who are flying high at the top of the table."
