TITUS GWAZE crossed the tryline twice to set up the Huddersfield Under 14 side’s 34-10 victory over Moortown in the re-arranged Yorkshire Plate tie in Leeds.
Both sides cancelled each other out in the opening 15 minutes, full-back Ethan Marr covering one Moortown attack and then starting Huddersfield’s first real attack of their own when he fed Harry Woodhouse who made a half-break.
Ben Dickinson then straightened the line before passing to flanker Gwaze who took the ball one-handed and ran under the sticks for the game’s first try, converted by James Addy.
Huddersfield’s players grew in confidence after that try and the second touchdown was another combination of forwards and backs with Arthur Wilkinson, Dickinson and Gwaze combining to put Sam Bourouh in space and his speed outstripped the defence.
A break and chip by Woodhouse took play back into Moortown’s 22 and after an exchange of penalties Gregg and Dickinson set up a ruck five metres from the home line and Wilkinson picked up and drove over to score in the corner.
Another Woodhouse break in the second half set up Jack Parkinson to score Huddersfield’s fourth try and despite Moortown applying some pressure it was the visitors who scored again through a great solo effort from Dickinson, converted by Addy.
Moortown pulled another try back from a scrum, but another Woodhouse break set up Gwaze to finish off with his second try of the game.
