Following a hard fought 15-8 victory away to Yorkshire Colts Premier League leaders Old Brodleians RFC (Halifax) in the last round, Nottingham Corsairs found themselves pitting their wits against further strong West Yorkshire opposition, again away from home, in the Quarter Finals of the National Colts Cup last weekend.
West Park Leeds RFC indeed proved to be tough opposition, as you would expect from the side who are third in the Yorkshire Colts Premier League. Two well taken tries either side of half-time gave Corsairs a platform and a solid defensive performance limited WP Leeds to points from a single penalty. This 10-3 victory means the Nottingham Corsairs are through to the semi-finals of the National Colts Cup where they will face further tough opposition from the North in the shape of Billingham RFC on the weekend 9th/10th April.
