A well worked set play saw Ben Molyneaux go over to open the scoring. Rylands pushed back quickly and leveled the score.

With all to play for East moved up a gear, a fantastic jinking run by Jordan Fishwick saw him score and east regain control of the game leaving it 12 -6 at the half.

East exploded into the second half and showed some good attacking play. Ryan Barnes was next to score after exposing a gap in the defensive line. Rylands now really struggled to contain East and it wasn’t long before Adam Jones went over to score. East didn’t let off and kept the tempo high.
