OLD BRODLEIANS 25 – 23 PERCY PARK
To quote an Old Brods supporter, post match “the best side lost”, and Park were instrumental in their own down fall. It took an 87th minute penalty by Brods skipper Dan Wood to take the points which keeps the Woodhead side top of North One East, and the only side in the league with a 100% record.
Both sides were forced to make changes from week 3 of the league campaign, with the home side changing 4 out of last week’s front 5 due to injury. Park made a few changes in the back division with John Scott being out of contention, Ash Smith moved in to scrum half from full back, Dave Griffiths moved from centre to fill this place and a new centre pairing of Zak Appleby Rutter and Simon Greatham took the field with Craig Firth out due to a rib injury.
