Leeds Spiders Wolfs started the year with a long trip to Littlehampton on the south coast to visit Southcoast Tornados, and despite half the first team injured took control of the Premier League Clash.

Spiders came out of the game triumphant as it finished 26-90.

The game saw Toby Wales deputise for the late injury to Hatem Ghanami who injured his hand this week, Wales joined up with Josh Gardner who returned from a long spell off after breaking his elbow back in November, with Captain Jack Brown, Ebrahim Ahmadi and Young Gun Luis Domingos in the starting lineup.

Spiders looked on top form and were straight into the points and took an early lead keeping some distance between themselves and the Tornados. Spiders have been savaged by injuries this season but the draft in of the second team players has turned around the fortunes of Spiders who prior to the last two games suffered big losses against Oldham and Sheffield which had left Spiders at the wrong end of the league table. Hopefully with a couple more wins will keep us safe this year so we can continue in the Premier League.
