LEIGH were worn down by a very big and physical Glossop side, losing at home 27-3.

Leigh were the first to score, through a Rob Drake penalty, on ten minutes but after that they were very much on the back foot, tackling their hearts out.

Glossop’s forward dominance got them over the Leigh line in the twenty second minute for an unconverted pushover try.

And they added to this on 35 minutes, when good approach work by their forwards set up a platform for their backs to spin the ball wide to score a well worked try down their left flank.

Glossop maintained their pressure after the half time break and they soon crossed again, for a converted try, to the left of the Leigh posts, in the forty third minute.

The Glossop forwards continued to dominate for the remainder of the match, with Leigh battling valiantly to keep them at bay.

But in the end the relentless pressure from their big, ball carrying forwards just proved too much for Leigh to handle and Glossop were rewarded with another two well constructed, unconverted tries to take the spoils and earn themselves a well deserved bonus point.
