Wibsey have mixed feelings after draw
Wibsey 8, Thirsk 8
Wibsey, who had David Wilkinson, James Sawyer, Matt Hartley, Andy Rose and Elliott Gray returning after attending former player-coach Rob Greenwood’s wedding, had mixed feelings after this SSE Yorkshire Division Five match at Beldon Lane.
The hosts thought they had done enough to win the contest but had to rely on winger Michael Fawcett charging down a conversion attempt to the left of the posts with two minutes remaining to get a draw.
Buoyed by the news that former coach Dave Grayson will be mentoring new coaches John Locke and Darrell Wilkinson – at least until Christmas – Wibsey played uphill in the first half and turned round at 3-3 after an even first stanza, James Sawyer kicking a penalty for the Bradford side.
Wibsey, who lost Locke with a fractured collarbone, took the lead with a try by centre John Nall, who ran over his marker after the home pack started to dominate.
Lock Alex Cerson was Wibsey’s man of the match.
