SKIPTON registered another four try bonus point win away at Leeds University's Weetwood playing fields on Saturday.

Playing into the wind in the first-half, Skipton exerted early pressure on the home side with strong running from both forwards and backs and two probing penalty kicks into the corner.

The visitors suffered an early set back with South African signing Damian Glaus at prop having to leave the field with a leg injury. He was replaced by Steve Carroll and from continued pressure and possession in the Medics 22, skipper Josh Nkwo at stand-off spotted a gap and was over for Skipton's opening try. Centre Callum Patrick added the extra points.

The Leeds Students had pace and flair and always looked dangerous with ball in hand. They took the game straight back to Skipton and evaded two tackles to cross for an unconverted try.

Skipton scrum-half Jake Emmison picked up an ankle injury and winger Sam Brearley stepped up to the No. 9 position. A penalty into the corner saw second-row Brad Nicholson over from the line-out but adjudged held-up.

The pace of the students began to put pressure on Skipton as the half wore on. Andy Wooler replaced Tom Allsop at prop just before the break and the sides turned round with a narrow lead to Skipton at 7-5.

The visitors started the second-half with the wind behind them and a great break by Patrick saw him brought down just short. Quickly re-cycled ball, pressure and a quick tap penalty put second-row Harry Maltby over for Skipton's second try. Patrick again added the extra points.

Skipton full-back Lewis Reynoldson used the wind to good advantage, putting long range kicks into the corner. The visitors pushed the Medics off the scrum and gained a penalty, which Patrick converted to stretch the lead to 17-5.

Skipton suffered another injury set-back, with Tom Creasey replacing Harry Maltby in the pack but, from another scrum close in for a Medics knock-on, Brad Nicholson was over for try number three, again converted by Patrick.

Skipton gained a penalty on the Medics 22 in the next phase of play for the home side not releasing, but opted for the scrum. Quick hands down the back line put Patrick over for Skipton's fourth try, securing the bonus league point. The conversion attempt hit the post and the referee blew for full-time with Skipton running out comfortable winners at 29-5.
