Yorkshire Carnegie’s Ryan Burrows celebrated his 100th league appearance for the club against Cornish Pirates and said he was proud to make the milestone but also to help Carnegie secure the win.
Burrows became only the ninth player in the history of the club to reach the century of league appearances, having joined the club from Rotherham in 2011. Commenting on the achievement he said: “I am very proud to make my 100th appearance, but more so today to have secured the five point win. My 100th game means a lot but I would have swapped that just for the win that we have got.
“In the first half we put a lot of pressure on ourselves and made a lot of mistakes and probably there was a bit of the rustiness of last week that came back into our game and we never controlled that first half and we played twenty minutes with 14 men. We just need to stick to our game plan and execute."
