Pilks stepped up the intensity in Defence in the second half .
Their efforts paid off . Stopping the Strong Newton attack from crossing the line again.
On top of the excellent work in defence. Our attack really started to thrive. Some excellent runs from the likes of Harry Roche, Rhys Ford, and Dylan Cain laid the platform for our backs to play.
Try's coming from Max Fear, with a superb burst of speed to go in under the sticks. Brad Abbot with his second of the game and Josh Yates with a scoot from dummy half from inside his own half to go over under the posts.
