U19s: 1st vs 2nd

Post by josie andrews » Fri Jun 07, 2019 11:21 pm

Wigan Warriors U19s host Leeds Rhinos at the Robin Park Arena on Saturday (12:30pm kick-off).

Top of the table blockbuster to be streamed LIVE on Wigan TV.

Season ticket holders can watch the games for free, while for non-season ticket holders, it is £5 entry for Adults and £3 for Juniors.

Wigan Warriors Under-19s face Leeds Rhinos in a top of the table clash at the Robin Park Arena on Saturday (12:30pm kick-off).

Shane Eccles’ side, who currently sit first in the Academy Super League, host second place Leeds in what will be a repeat of last year’s Grand Final.

A win for the Warriors would see them go four points clear at the top, but a victory for the visitors would take them on to 20 points - the same as Wigan.

And with the league’s two best attacking and defensive teams on show on Saturday, the action should not disappoint at the Robin Park Arena.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Should be a cracking game, hopefully home field advantage will prove vital. We were poor last week so I am confident that we will rise to the occasion. I hope it stops raining!

Good and well deserved win in dreadful conditions.

U19s go four points clear

Match report as Wigan Warriors Under-19s beat Leeds Rhinos Under-19s 24-10 at Robin Park Arena.

Win sees Shane Eccles’ side sustain their place at the top of the Academy Super League table.

Wigan Warriors Under-19s overcame Leeds Rhinos at the Robin Park Arena on Saturday to go four points clear at the top of the Academy Super League.


An inspirational performance from captain Harry Smith saw the Warriors claim a 24-10 victory over the Rhinos, who remain second in the league standings.

Tries from Cian Tyrer, Aiden Roden, James McDonnell and Amir Bourouh were enough to see off Leeds, who went over twice in the second half through Owen Trout and Harvey Spence, before Muizz Mustapha was shown a yellow card, which gave his side too much to do.

The Warriors have now won their last five games since April’s away defeat to Leeds, as Shane Eccles’ have 22 points from a possible 24.

After just four minutes, Smith opened up the Leeds defence on the right side to provide winger Tyrer with the space to touch down and get his side off to the perfect start.

The home side doubled their lead in the 20th minute as Roden forced his way over the line from dummy half.

Seconds before half-time, Eccles’ side added a third try, as half-back Smith found McDonnell with a quick cut-in pass to allow the second row to go over.

Smith’s three converted kicks gave the Warriors a deserved 18-0 advantage at the break.

Wigan began the second half in the same way they started the first, as Amir Bourouh raced through a gap in the Leeds defence to expand the lead, with skipper Smith adding the extras to make it 24-0.

On the hour mark, the Rhinos broke through the Wigan line to get their first try of the afternoon, as Trout powered over.

Six minutes later, the visitors got their second, this time through Johnson with a swift attacking move from dummy half. After missing the first conversion, Harvey Spence made no mistake with the second as he took the score to 24-10.

That try proved to be nothing more than consolation for the Rhinos, as Mustapha was sent to the sin-bin in the 69th minute for a dangerous tackle, which allowed Wigan to see out the 24-10 triumph.

The Cherry and Whites have now won 11 games from 12 in 2019 and go four points clear at the top of the league. Local rivals St Helens can move above Leeds into second place and close the gap to Wigan to two points if they beat London Broncos at the Trailfinders Sports Ground on Sunday.
