ON THIS DAY

On the 19th February in 1966 Leeds defeated their Yorkshire rivals Keighley in the league and in 1989 the Loiners were defeated away at Wigan.

On this day in 1966 Leeds recorded their sixth consecutive victory in a row with a 12-0 win over Keighley. Leeds had already defeated their Yorkshire rivals earlier in the season 10-2 and in this game thanks to Dick Gemmell and Ronnie Cowan who both scored a try each and Bev Risman who landed three goals the Loiners were able to claim a second victory. On this day in 1989 Leeds played Wigan in the league for the second time that season. In the first game at Headingley, Garry Schofield had inspired the Loiners to a 22-4 win with four tries but in this return match Leeds were unable to achieve a second victory, losing their sixth league game of the season. Cliff Lyons and John Bentley were the try scorers for Leeds but the team were unable to add any more points and lost 16-8.
