Warrington 2nd Come Back From 14-7 Down at Half Time For Great Win

Harry Kellett is a hero among heroes

Liverpool Veterinary School 14 Warrington 2nd XV 15

Warrington’s second team came back from being 14-7 down at half time to run out eventual winners by 15-14 against a pacey Liverpool Vets.

The Warrington front row of Dom Hastings, Sam Bennett and Jordan Raws soon established dominance in the scrums and this proved to be one of the platforms of Warrington’s success. Fittingly it was from a set scrum, taken against the head, that Warrington scored their first try. The Warrington backs made excellent use of the unexpected possession and the evergreen Tony Fretwell showed that class players never quite lose it to touch down. Darren Norman converted.

Liverpool then started to play to their strengths and demonstrated the old adage that there is no substitute for pace by running in two excellent tries to give them a seven point lead at the turn around.

Darren Norman quickly reduced the deficit ten minutes into the second period with a well-struck penalty and Warrington gradually started to get on top. Building on their superiority up front, the Warrington defence, spearheaded by Harry Kellett, snuffed out potential Liverpool dangers and started to exert their own pressure on the Liverpool line. Eventually, their persistence was rewarded when Harry Kellett picked up from the base of a five yard scrum and powered over for the winning score.

“This was a team of heroes today,” said skipper Shaun Yoxhall. “The front row was superb, on any other day Dan Griffiths would have been man of the match but Harry Kellett was head and shoulders above anybody on the field. This week we welcome Kendal to Walton Lea Road. They are currently second in the league just one point behind Blackburn. This will be a true test of our mettle.”
