Barla Cup Winners
Seven pupils from the Rodillian Academy competed in the Final of the U11 Rugby League Barla Cup for Hunslet Warriors and came out victorious 6 – 4. In a tightly contested game, the Hunslet Warriors Squad performed superbly well against a well organised and motivated team from The Kippax Rugby League Club. Harry Shackleton has been superb with the boot all season for both The Rodillian Rugby Union squad and for Hunslet Warriors. Harry Peach who recently received the Man of Steel award for Hunslet Warriors has played incredibly well all season and has been a key ball carrier in both codes. The Norton Twins, Dillon and Sean have performed superbly well and are an integral part of the Hunslet Warriors and Rodillian team. Jake Creswell and Ryan Clark performed well in the final and have trained and played well for the Academy team this season. Lewis Houlker, who joined the Rodillian academy in November also played for the triumphant Hunslet Warriors side and has turned his hand to the contact and set piece within rugby union this term to good effect. The Rodillian Academy is proud to support Hunslet Warriors and it is hoped that both teams will be successful in the future and build upon the supportive relationship which has now been established across the two codes and between the two coaching centres.
