Siddal as all good teams do found a way to win and for the first time in the second half broke with speed and width to cut open a tired Judes defence captain Nick Smith sending Gareth blackburn over.And pour water on the locals bonfire celebrations.!!.
In all fairness Siddal have a poor record at Judes, and when you look at who Judes have beaten at home this season (Thatto and Leigh East) it tell's you something about how strong they can be at home. So with it being so hard to pick points on the road this was a fine win.
The locals were going nuts about the ref, but he was fair for both teams, gave Judes offside at one re-start, then levelled it up by giving Siddal offside at the re-start after Judes last try that got the biggest cheer of the game.
Exciting game to watch but from Siddals point if view to many mistakes, no 7 for Judes oustanding.for Siddal,Chris Marsh had a very good game.
Try's for Siddal- Gudor, Hoyle, Marsh, English, and Blackburn.

This is by no way being disrespectful to the 'Warriors' but someone of his age/size/conditioning/ability should not be playing at this particular level.He should be setting his sights higher and applying himself accordingley.

East had no doubts as to the quality of Saddleworth Rangers who have a habit of matching and winning against teams tipped for the playoff spots this season.
Last weekend Saddleworth just lost away to league leaders Thatto Heath by 30-24, their strength is on their own ground, with a 20-10 win over Siddal in September and 22-10 over Leigh Miners a couple of week back, the tilt of the pitch, heavy surface and its narrow width with its raised top corners can make it difficult for anyone to visit and East were ready for a tough encounter.
Saddleworth were good few inches taller than the young East side and overflowing with confidence but the visitors focused and took control of the game from the start and took the lead after just six minutes, John Walker crashing over after sustained on the Saddleworth line, followed a couple of minutes later when a forty metre break by Gary Middlehurst was finished off by Ryan Fieldhouse, Adam Holland adding the conversion to give East a 10-0 lead after only nine minutes.
The home team quickly responded with two converted tries taking the lead by 10-12 after fifteen minutes. Earlier in the season the same scenario would have meant trouble for East but they showed a lot of composure by spending the next ten minutes or so playing basic rugby, completing sets and holding the defensive line. As Saddleworth looked to be building in confidence Gary Middlehurst, the East try machine struck, taking an inside ball from Kilshaw to regain the lead which would be held for the remainder of the game. Holland increasing the lead to 16-12 with the conversion. A superb fifty metre break by full back Ryan Fieldhouse saw him held short of the line and with the home team struggling to contain the East attack a penalty was awarded for offside, which Holland slotted over to increase the lead to six points (18-12) after twenty six minutes.
On the half hour Holland kicked down the slope to the corner flag on the last tackle and Andrew Groves out sprinted the cover defence and realised was unable to gather the ball without running into touch, so he put boot to ball and squared it back towards the uprights for Gary Middlehurst to pick up and score, the conversion by Holland making the score 24-12 at the break.
The second half saw East on fire, Simon Stevens crossing from a set play on 42 mins. A lightning break and quick play ball by Mark Cahill gave East great field position on 45 mins, Kilshaw chipping over the defensive line for Mark Ballard to run around the defencive line for a good try.
Saddleworth held East out for a while and also managed to respond with a try just before the hour mark, but once again this only lead to firing up the East attack.
Holland scored from acting half four minutes later, from the restart Fieldhouse collected under the East bar, rounded the would be Saddleworth tacklers before slowing up on the half way and passing to the Mark Kay who rolled back the years and showed how to finish a break. In the final ten minutes Fieldhouse and Kay struck again with Holland adding a final conversion to give East a forty point magin , with a 56-16 victory.
East Tries: Middlehurst (2), Kay (2), Fieldhouse (2), Stevens, Walker, Holland, Ballard.
Goals: Holland (
