Ones To Watch

Yorkshire Rams – Tom Wilkinson

The Rookie DB has impressed so far this season and last time out against Tamworth Phoenix was one of his best games.

With 8 tackles, a forced fumble, a sack and a punt block; Wilkinson has shown that he is versatile on both defence and special teams.

He’ll be looking to add to those stats when the Pirates come to town.

After a fantastic performance away at Coventry, McLaughlin will be keen to continue a good season in Leeds.

A couple of touchdowns when connecting with QB Neil Baptie and another on a kickoff return for 70 yards, along with a second big return after a Jets touchdown will give the Rams kick off team something to think about as well as the defence.


Entry is free to spectators and will kickoff at 2.30pm. We hope to see you all there.
