Colts won 36 - 0 at Hartlepool Rovers. Match report thanks to John Dean-Laws.
Northern U17s travelled to Hartlepool Rovers with a squad of 21. Conditions were to play a key factor, freezing cold and a blowing gale to play against and to have behind. Northern started into the wind and a hard task it proved. All play was in the Hartlepool half for the first 15 minutes but clearance kicks repeatedly put us back in our 22. Kieran Laws made the breakthrough crashing over from 5 metres out and wasn't being stopped. Josh Vince Urwin scored soon after with a well worked try out wide. Josh made the first conversion and at half time Northern were 0-12 up.
With 6 changes to the team and with the wind Northern pressed the rest of the game in the game in Hartlepool 22. Jake Mc crashed over from 5 out after good forward play. An interception try by Jordan Symonds was next, followed 5 minutes later by a good finish by Tom Crosse at 13. The last score by team captain and man of the match Nick White followed a great passage of play with an inside ball off 10 at close quarters.
