Centre John Hartley grabbed himself a hat-trick (and perhaps a hefty bar bill) before half time to give the home side a 16 – 8 advantage, two tries of which were goaled by Warren Stainton. Glasson responded with two unconverted tries from stand off Craig Miller and winger Grant Murday.
The try of the match came just after the break as Callum Huck scooped up the ball to run 80 metres to score next to the posts giving Stainton an easy conversion. The ball hadn’t long returned to the field of play when Glasson’s James Moore added to their tally with a try converted by Carl Armstrong.
The last 20 minutes was all one way traffic as Egremont hit the scoreboard with tries prop joel schwarzer (2) and an excellent individual effort from scrum half Anthony Leak.
Egremont’s go forward attitude gave them the edge as the smattering of experience in Warren Stainton, Dave Butler, Andrew Hines bolstered the young team who have a very bright future in the game and especially for the season ahead. Keep training and keep up the hard work.
We believe in you. Belief creates confidence, consistency, trust, ability and above all victory.
