A game of endurance then dominance

Canterbury 21 – 5 Leigh

The zingari had to endure the hardest opening half of the season so far. Leigh came at them from the start setting up camp just outside the Zingari twenty-two with a move from the training pitch, and quick ball from a scrum created the overlap on the blind side to go over in the corner. With the opening score under their belt leigh’s forwards pressed hard dominating at the set piece, and quite a lot of possession in the loose. However, as the half-progressed the Zingari’s resistance developed, and by halftime they had taken the early sting out of Leigh’s attack. The second half saw a complete change from the start, with the city sides forwards driving deep into Leigh’s territory for Jack Waite to finish off with a try converted by Finn McCabe. Leigh’s forwards rallied but as the half progressed and with some aggressive tackling Leigh found themselves confined more into their half of the pitch. As the game entered the last quarter the city side’s forwards started to gain quality possession feeding their backs who started to make inroads, first to profit was Richard Collins breaking through to touch down out wide, converted by Simon Crossley. This seemed to inspire the backs who repeatedly breeched the gain line keeping Leigh on the back foot. The game got a little fractious at this point but the Zingari forwards stuck to their task again releasing their backs, this time it was Geoge Thomas with a tackle breaking run who sliced through to touch down out wide, leaving Simon Crossley with the difficult conversion hitting the crossbar on the way over to close out the match.
