12:05pm Thursday 9th August 2012 in Amateur Rugby League
Ince Rose Bridge 6 Bold Miners 32
DESPITE this not being a vintage performance Miners were always in control.
Bold opened up an 18-0 lead, with a good run from Gaz Langley setting up the position for the first try from captain Paul Johnson.
The second came as the forwards laid the platform to allow Mark Saunders to take on the line and cross.
Then the ball was shipped from left to right to give wingman Colin Slater just enough room to score in the corner, withAdam Welsby adding all three conversions.
Ince hit back with a converted try but that spurred Bold to get back on the attack, and a scrum move involving Saunders and Andy Dobson saw Gaz Langley cut through the defence for a try that left the score at 22-6 at half time.
Bold were in defence for long periods of the second half and held strong before adding two more tries.
Adam Welsby jinked through the line and the ball went via Kelvin Walkden for Saunders to add his second score.
The sixth and final try came as Johnson, Crehan and Saunders combined to send Langley in for a superb try to claim his second to which Welsby added the conversion.
Liam Crehan was selected as man of the match, while Walkden, Langley and Saunders were also impressive.
Sixteen-year-old Jack Mayor was impressive in attack and defence on his open-age debut.
