North 1 East
Percy Park 48 - 12 Wheatley Hills
Wheatley Hills were the visitors to Preston Avenue on a fine December day, mild and dry conditions with no wind to speak of made perfect conditions for running rugby and the supporters weren’t disappointed.
As is the custom, there were several changes to the team, George Purdy moved up from the bench to the starting fifteen. In the forwards, Josh Headley and Austin Phillips came into the second row while Sean Williamson joined the back row and in the backs, Park welcomed back Ricki Hasnip in the centres, with Dan Chambers moving to fullback. Park were also glad to see the return of John Scott to scrum half after 4 weeks out due to injury or the cold weather as some rumours would suggest.
It was Wheatley Hills to kick off, and with the kick not making the 10 meters, Park were awarded a scrum back on half way. A dart from Scott then a couple of passes plus some missed tackles and Ethan Wilson found himself under the posts making it a perfect start for Park, although Michael Grove surprisingly missed the easy conversion.
