RANGERS can look forward to defending their Standard Cup on Good Friday after a thumping victory over Waterhead secured their place in the final. Th'ead were beaten 48-12 at Peach road on Saturday, a score which meant Oldham St Annes also make the final thanks to their points difference.
The victory follows a tough start for new coach Ken Kerr and his team with defeats in early season cup games just weeks after he took over.
A 38-0 loss at Premier Division Siddal in the Challenge Cup was followed by a shock 12-26 home defeat to Oldham St Anne’s in the Standard Cup round robin.
But with experienced players in Ethan Langhorn, Adam Jeffries back in the team and some impressive displays from youngsters including 17 year old scrum half Charlie McManus (below), the boys overwhelmed their local rivals.
Reflecting on his time at Rangers so far, Ken said; “I’m enjoying being with the lads. I’m starting to know them and putting names to faces.
"I still need more time with them but I’m confident we can have a good season.”
