The Tigers were in top form as, for the second week running, they came away the winners of a three way tournament.

Ely (31) vs Huntingdon (0)
The rain didn't dampen the Tigers spirits as great teamwork made them unbeatable. Ely started strongly with a determined charge forward from Ben Gamble, followed up with an early try and conversion from Matthew Melloy. Huntingdon immediately fought back and repeatedly attempted to cross their tryline, but brilliant defending from the Tigers made it impossible. Ely's first rate teamplay continued with a strong push forward from Aramelia Prothero and excellent tackle from Josh Smith.

Ben Storey's turn of foot left the opposition standing as he sped to score Ely's second try for Harry Grey to convert. A solid scrum won the ball for Robert Armer to pounce on and offload to Matthew to score. Moments later Matthew was sprinting up the pitch to complete his hat-trick, followed with another conversion. An good strong run from Kallum Mulhall gained ground, Archie Tarbuck continued to carry the ball to the tryline with a well timed offload to Luke Barber to score.

Squad: Robert Armer, Luke Barber (1), Ben Gamble, Harry Grey, Matthew Melloy (3), Kallum Mulhall, Edward Potter, Aramelia Prothero, Josh Smith, Ben Storey (1), Archie Tarbuck, Carl Tuck, David Walsh,
