Loan Watch: Week Six


With just one player in loan action this weekend, hear how Ollie Fox got on against Hull RUFC.

Hull RUFC 22-27 Leeds Tykes

Scrum-half Ollie Fox returned to his hometown club, Leeds Tykes, at the weekend as he started for them in their victory at Hull.

Given the competition and strength at 9, Ollie has struggled for minutes this season, and so the trip back home was a chance for him to get some important game time ahead of our next block of fixtures.

The game was a typical Yorkshire derby, free flowing, entertaining and hard hitting. At the break Leeds were ten points up, but Hull did well to fight back and level it up at 22-all with 10 minutes remaining, before Leeds scored a last minute try to grab the encounter. 

Ollie played well, with crisp, quick passing throughout the game and strong support lines whenever there was a line break. He won multiple turnovers in open play, as well as making crucial tackles which all helped deliver Leeds the victory.
