Leeds hold out at The Rec

26 Oct 2002
Leeds hold out at The Rec

All the sweeter for the Yorkshiremen was the fact that their coach Jon Callard had been discarded by the West Country side last season, Leeds hooker Mark Regan also being a former regular at the Rec.

Leeds had to wait until the death to claim the points though, Bath centre Olly Barkley missing a tough touchline conversion in the 85th minute which would have shared the points.

That attempt came after Simon Danielli’s injury-time try, but it was not to be for the home side, who outscored their opponents three tries to one.

Barkley had himself earlier scored a try to add to Matt Perry’s five-pointer, but it was the boot of Leeds’ South African Braam van Straaten that did the damage.

He hit five penalties and a conversion, with second-row Tom Palmer touching down their only try, as they continued their superb start to the campaign after a miserable last season.
