Bury edged in front again with another try but Beccles soon drew the game level again. The Rix brothers combining well for the next try. Danny drove the ball close to the, Bury were able to turn the ball over but David was on hand to reach a hand through the ruck and touch down.

In the second half Beccles continued to play some good rugby on occasions but Bury were dangerous when the game opened up and added four more tries during the half. This gave a final score of 50 – 10.
