Wigan Under 19s v Leeds Under 19s - Academy Phase 2 (Group 1)
Saturday 27th June 2015. Kick Off
2:00pm at Co-Operative Stadium, Orrell.

Match Summary

An early try from Nathan Barker had Leeds 6-0 up but four quick tries from Lewis Heckford, Liam Marshall, Macauley Davies and Oliver Gildart had Leeds looking ominous for a similar rout as seen against Warrington a fortnight ago.

Leeds hung in at 20-6 though and a Nick Rawsthrone try in the 26th Minute made it 20-12 and that score remained until half time.

Second half saw Kyle Shelford send Jake Shorrocks over for 24-12 before a bit of biff saw Leeds prop Sam Hallas sent off with Liam Marshall for Wigan being sin binned by referee Andrew Bentham.

Soon after that, a good burst from Kieran Sherratt set up Callum Field to make it 30-12 after Shorrocks conversion and you thought Wigan would kick on from here with Leeds being a man down once Marshall's sin bin expired.

But in truth the game died a prolonged death with the only score to follow being a Leeds one by Ben Brady to complete a 30-18 score to Wigan.
