On the 20th anniversary of Bramley Buffaloes’ return to the rugby league fold, the present incumbents of the shirts produced 80 minutes of powerful and expansive rugby to destroy Castleford Panthers by 40 points to 12 to go through to the next round of the cup.

Despite being in a higher division the Panthers had no answer to the power of the Buffaloes’ forwards of the fleet footed three-quarters as Bramley ran in four first half tries to lead 22-12 at the break.  

The second half was more of the same as the highly focused Buffaloes added another four tries including a near length of the field effort to put the icing on the cake.

Try-scorers were Sam Marshall, Sam Neave, Keiran Hudson, Keiran McFarlane, Jack Boot, Louis Morrison, Bailey Harman and Lewis Gaunt with Connor McGill kicking four goals.

Double-Header weekend

This weekend sees the Buffaloes welcome Birstall Victoria to West Leeds as they return back to league duties.  The match kicks-off at 2.30pm following the Buffaloes second team playing Thornhill Trojans, which kicks off at 12.30pm.

This week’s visitors

Birstall Victoria visit Blue Hill Lane with one victory from one match after they defeated York Acorn 22-18 on 20 April. The club was formed in 1976 and have been proud members of both the Heavy Woollen and Yorkshire League since then.

The club were the first winners of the Darryl Woollin Trophy which included two players who went on to have successful professional careers, Dick Jaziewicz (Bradford, Wakefield and Great Britain and John Lyons (Wakefield, Leeds and Halifax).
