Buffaloes Bulletin: Bramley continue scorching start to season

by Paul Abraham

Flying winger Eliah Chitiyo stole the show with four scintillating tries as Bramley Buffaloes continued their winning run as they overpowered Upton 38-0 at rain-hit West Leeds Rugby Union ground.

Other touchdowns were provided by Morrison, Gaunt and Neave. Gaunt added five goals to complete the scoring.

A full match report can be read here. Many thanks to Devon and Andy Johnson for suppling the wonderful match reports.

Buffs batter the All Blacks

The Buffs completed a league double against New Earswick All Blacks with an emphatic 36-8 away victory. 

Again, the superior fitness was on show as the Buffaloes led 24-0 at the break and took the foot of the gas in the second half as they had already accomplished a match-defining performance in the first forty minutes.  Try scorers in North Yorkshire were Chitiyo (2) Ballantyne (2) Harman and Booth with Gaunt kicking 6 goals.

A full report will soon be available on the Bramley Buffaloes website.

This week’s opponents

The rampaging Buffaloes host Elland/Greetland at the West Leeds Rugby Union ground this Saturda at 2.30pm and will be looking to avenge their only loss of the season so far.  

The 18-36 defeat will also be remembered for the unsporting excesses of the hosts coaching staff so revenge would be sweet for the Bramley boys.

Division One application news

The club are working incredibly hard behind the scenes on their application to return to the professional ranks for the first time since 1999.  

They are pursuing various avenues to make the dream become reality, there are many obstacles to overcome but the “working group” and chair Martyn Cheney are burning the midnight oil in the attempt to meet the RFL/IMG criteria.  

The club plan to make an announcement next week.
