Mini Junior Weekend Round-up – 4/2/18

Date: 06 February 2018

The majority of the Minis were training this Sunday.

The Under 11s hosted Fylde on the AGP in the early kick-off slot.  Both sides fielding 2 teams with great skills on show from all players.

The Under 15s hosted Burnley on the AGP in a very late change to the advertised programme.  Hoppers started well breaking the gain line a number of time with strong running and proved to be a little stronger in the tackle. Burnley did not give up and stuck to their task but were outgunned by Hoppers who ran out comfortable winners.

The Under 16s lost away to Vale of Lune 5-10 in a closely contested game. Hoppers were again without their Lancashire players but plenty of game time was available to the rest of the squad.

The Colts beat Fleetwood 33-10 in the second round of the Lancashire Senior Colts Trophy.  Hoppers started very well with strong running and good hands. A very solid performance saw a half time score of 26-5 with tries for Pomeroy, Salisbury, Hill and Hobin.  Hoppers dominated possession and territory in the second half but failed to execute the opportunities that arose, the only Hoppers try in the second period came from Hobin.  Hoppers scoring was completed by 4 conversions by Hayward.  Hoppers are now into a quarter final at home to Littleborough.
