There was no 1st XV fixture last weekend for ‘Ensians as Aireborough, their opponents in the Yorkshire Silver Trophy, were required to play a re-arranged League Match against Leeds Modernians which was postponed from the previous week as a result of quad bikes vandalising the Aireborough pitch.

The focus was therefore on the 2nd XV who entertained Skipton 2nd XV in a close-fought encounter. The visitors had a solid side and took a 12 – 0 lead at the break, but the home side came back strongly in the second half with four tries from Chris Westland, Daz Cooley, Andy Bower and Lewis Robinson. Matt Tenniswood converted two to make the final score 24 – 17 to ‘Ensians.

‘Ensians return to League action on Saturday with a home game against Halifax, kick-off 2.15 pm.
