IN a great team effort the Blackbrook Royals U15s retained the Lancashire Cup and claimed the double after already securing the league title.

Leading from the front was Prop Forward and Man of the Match Joe McLoughlin as the Royals pack dominated their opponents from start to finish.

Ince couldn't cope with the speed, strength and agility of the Royals backline with Jake Spedding, Ben Calland and Bobby Williams breaking the line at will.

Brook’s half backs and especially the impressive Kiye Rigby were in top form. Man of the Match could of gone to any of the squad as it was a fantastic team performance, Jonah Cunningham, Liam Cooper, Ben Morris and Aaron Smith had excellent games.
