The Huddersfield Rams suffered a bitter defeat to West Yorkshire rivals Leeds Minotaurs, in a game which saw the Rams suffer multiple injuries.

Leeds took a narrow lead going into the first quater break, but the Rams took the game to them in the second, finishing 13 points ahead at half time despite seeing Luke Booth carried off through injury.

Huddersfield had to reassess during the half time interval due to injuries sustained to their key players including: Luke Booth (Ankle), Jason Battye (Knee) & Matt Whiteley (Ankle).  

The team continued to battle on after the break, with the interchange bay seeing plenty of action from both sides. Booth rejoined the side after taping his ankle up, replacing Dave Durrance who suffered a hamstring strain after scoring two goals. 

The Rams looked good value for their half-time lead, but a late surge of goals from the strong Minotaur squad, saw the depleted Huddersfield team lose by just 15 points.

Full report to follow.
