Bolton School staff took part in a teacher tag rugby league
session at Smithills School to help promote rugby league in the
The event was organised by Leigh Centurions player and Bolton
community rugby league officer, John Duffy, who has been coaching
at several schools in the borough including Bolton school.
In the first game Bolton took a two try lead against Rivington
and Blackrod - the tries being scored by Marc Tillotson and
Ian Hughes. Rivington bounced back to level and the game ended an
honourable draw. The second game was an intense affair against
Westhoughton, with both sides defending well to keep the try line
empty. Paul Fernside had a try disallowed which could have
sealed the game, but the Howfen lads played from the turnover and
scored a late winner.
The night was a huge success and the teams will be meeting again
as the official curtain raiser before the Leigh Centurions v Batley
game on Sunday 1st May.
