The match was played as a 13 aside game with both teams only having 15 players. Saxons played a new line up due to unavailability and illness ravaging the squad, a new debutant and some returning players.

On a cold brisk morning with the frost just clearing in time for the match Saxons fell behind to a penalty try given for a high tackle.

That’s was the last time the Saxons line was breached as try after try was scored; 10 by the backs and a sole forward try. Some good interlinking play, support running and rucking was noted throughout the match. 

Only towards the end, with the match won, did the SAXONS lose a bit of structure.

Amazingly 10 of the 11 tries were converted so a superb effort from the kicking tee.

11 tries in 11th game of season to make it 11 wins from 11.
