Yarnbury are in the mood to take this league by storm and are quietly going about their league matches these days and welcomed back back row Richard Longstaff after injury.They started this local derby in the same vain as last week with what looked a certain push over try with No8 Ian Moule looking odds on to score before the ball was kicked out of the scrum by West Leeds scrum half and the game continued rather than a penalty ty to the Horsforth side.From showing superiority and control of the game West Leeds showed their skill and detemination out wide and from in their own quarter full back Gareth Stokes intercepted a looped pass from stand off Carl Paterson to race the length of the field to make the first score converted by stand off Danny Monk.This opportunity lifted the West Leeds side and from a line out centre Sam Neave weaved his way through the Yarnbury defence to give West Leeds a 14 - 0 lead and a big fright to Yarnbury staring down a defeat for the first time in nine games!

Yarnbury got a try back when West Leeds kicked long to right wing Mark Dixon who cleverly palmed the ball back to the oncoming Jason Avieson who outstripped the defence to score out wide right.A further try from a line out and drive by the forwards saw second row Ian Maycock double the Yarnbury tally but a further penalty for the home side by Danny Monk gave Yarnbury plenty to think about at the break.

Luckily Yarnbury learnt from the first forty minutes and imposed their superior strebgth and height in lines and scrums and took control of the game for most of the half scoring three more unanswered tries from No 8 Ian Moule from another catch and drive,full back Andy Greaves breaking through the defence and winger Mark Dixon scoring the best try of the game after good ruck ball and fast hands to the right winger sore him take a fine pass on the run and dive over in the corner.

Yarnbury had secured their bonus point and another win to march up Yorkshire 2 to fourth place with games in hand on the top two sides.However,not before the home side secured a bonus pooint in a loss by the diminutive centre Danny Thorpe who managed to riggle out of a three man tackle to touch down and Danny Monk securing one point with the conversion to bring the score within seven points.
