AN excellent display by the home side brought them 8 tries, and another well deserved maximum 5 league points with a 52-32 triumph over Anselmians.

Notably outplayed for the most part of the game the visitors also took a bonus point from the game, eventually scoring five tries themselves

West Park opened their account within five mins of the start of the game, a catch and drive from a line out, expertly completed with a try

from second row Anthony Jones.

The visitors clawed back 3 pts from a converted penalty, but from broken play centre Josh Ainsworth took a good

line to slice through the cover defence to score a fine try which stand off Rosney converted.

A worrying lack of concentration from Park allowed the visitors to take a quick penalty to get their winger in at the corner to narrow the gap to

only four points, and then again, although against the run of play, convert another move to score a try wide out and take a one point lead in the game.

Almost immediately West Park regained the lead as clever interplay between centre Warburton and Rosney saw the latter cross for a try which he

then converted to provide a lead of 19pts to 13pts at the interval.

A controversial decision by the referee not to award a penalty try nonetheless saw Potter force his way over from the resulting scrum for Park’s 4th try,

duly converted by Rosney , earning them a well deserved bonus point.

Despite Park’s dominance the visitors were still in the game and somewhat against the run of play scored a good try under the posts which was easily

converted to narrow the gap to only 6 points.

Park’s young wing debutant Ryan Littler was not phased by the more experienced opposition, and receiving a pass from full back Appleton, made good

ground in attack to feed the supporting Matt Potter whose second try was duly converted by Rosney. A further try followed after good interplay between

centres Warburton and Ainsworth allowing supporting 2nd row Lewis Harris to cross, Rosney again adding the extras

The home side made a number of changes given their lead, and after winning another good scrum an excellent break by Harris was completed by supporting

prop Kimberley, a try again converted by Rosney to put the score at 47 pts to 20 pts.

An attempted clearance kick was charged down by the visitors to give an easy score and bonus point, but almost immediately that advantage was wipe out

as a line out was won by Park, the ball quickly transferred across the line to allow Ainsworth to seal a fine performance and score his second try .

With the last move of the game the visitors caught the home side napping and added a further try to give their score some semblance of respectability .

Overall this was a competent display by West Park, with both backs and forwards showing good levels of skill and industry, efforts that will need be

replicated for next week ‘s visit to Southport.
