GREAT AKKIES’ DEFENCE ON THEIR OWN LINE

Following my operation in the spring, I’m able to drive again and made my way up to Eastfield to watch the Pirates take on Leeds Akkies. An entertaining  Rugby League clash played in a great spirit. Because of duff gen from the local paper which said the game kicked off at 3pm I turned up at about 3.15 and it was the start of the second half with the Eastfield outfit drawing 16-16. The local lads turned in a good second half display running out 31-16 winners. Pirates nudged ahead with a try from former Hull K.R. star Craig Farrell and clinched both points to keep them top of the league with a great individual effort  from Martin Robinson. A hugely entertaining game watched by around a hundred spectators was a great break from recent awful weather.
