Wibsey 31 Burley 21

WIBSEY survived a slow start and three sin-binnings to maintain their 100 per cent record in Yorkshire Division Four North West.

Burley, who were beaten 31-21 at Northfield Road, went in front with a converted try in the third minute, but the hosts levelled three minutes later with a try by Kyle Carter - his ninth of the season - which was converted by Andy Robinson.

A rare try by hooker Danny Carr, which was again improved by Robinson, and a five-pointer by Robson Moore gave Wibsey clear water at 19-7 before full back Brad Wright was yellow-carded for throwing the ball away on the half-hour.

Burley immediately replied with a converted try but the home side went into half-time leading 24-14, courtesy of a try by James Brown.

Wibsey were amazingly on the wrong end of a 13-2 penalty count in the second half and had Robinson and Brown sin-binned in the 60th and 68th minutes respectively, but still drew the stanza 7-7.

Robinson converted his own try in the 48th minute and Burley replied seven minutes later before having one of their players yellow carded in the 70th minute.

Burley could have rescued a losing bonus point with a try on the last play of the game but came away empty-handed.

No 8 Ross Simpson was Wibsey's man of the match.
