|Cadishead Rhinos||10||vs||42||Bank Quay Bulls A|
Bulls take charge
The Rhinos failed to take the bull by the horn on Saturday and came off second best
Cadishead started slowly and 2 tries in the opening 17 minutes gave the visitors a 12-0 lead before they started to play.
Rick Keir and Richie Hayes started to lead the way with their strong running but it was Bank Quay who crossed for a try again on 30 minutes to extend their lead to 18-0.
The Rhinos kept plugging away however and their good work was rewarded when Darren Evans crashed over for an unconverted try.
Another Bulls try just before half time left the scores at 24-4 at the break.
It was Cadishead who started the brighter of the two sides in the 2nd half and hooker Adam Grundy gave them a glimmer of hope as he scooted over for a try converted by Steve Hill to leave the scores at 24-10.
Luke Doherty came close to scoring with an interception but didn't have the legs and Bank Quay came down the other end to score and extend their lead to 30-10.
With Richie Hayes kicking the ball out on the full from the restart the Bulls put the game beyond doubt with a second try within minutes.
Although the Rhinos pressed they could not break down the solid visitors defence and a late Bank Quay interception try gave the final score a rather one sided look.
