Whitton Nominated for OurLeague Try of the Week
April 5, 2022
Cornwall RLFC’s Liam Whitton has been nominated for the OurLeague Try of the Week award.
The full-back, 20, goes up against Jai Field (Wigan Warriors), Danny Houghton (Hull FC), Reece Lyne (Wakefield Trinity), Caleb Atkins (Leigh Centurions) and Levi Edwards (York City Knights).
Whitton’s try was the third of four that Cornwall scored in their first ever professional match last Saturday which saw Neil Kelly’s men lose 62-22 to North Wales Crusaders in Colwyn Bay.
Although defeated, Whitton’s try was arguably the best of 16 scored over the course of 80 minutes. The former Leeds Rhinos academy man crossed the whitewash right in the middle of Cornwall’s purple patch too when Kelly’s side scored three tries in 12 second half minutes to give the Crusaders a real fright.
