Rowntrees RUFC topple Castleford 27-20
10:45am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Sport
ROWNTREES RUFC were 27-20 winners in their opening Merit League game of the season at Castleford 3rds.
The home side scored four tries to Trees’ three, but the imperious kicking of Tommy Atkinson proved invaluable.
His three conversions and two long range penalties saw the visitors to victory.
Although the heavier Cas pack took their toll in the scrums, Trees had the speed of centre Alex Ulyet to run in three tries, one before the break to give them a slender 7-5 half-time lead.
The Trees forwards were winning good ball in the lineouts and at the breakdowns to enable Ulyet to score his other two tries.
