Sharks nibble on the Worms

The worms got off to a flier from the kick off making their way to the Norland twenty then kicking to the corner for Callum Scutter to score,Gav Lightowler converted.
Norland hit right back Paul Shaw barging over under the posts for Danny Gardiner to goal. Next Liam Bilton broke clear and handed on to Danny Gardiner to score then goal to take the lead.
Norland increased the lead Bob Loughran making the break and putting Liam Bilton over.
The Worms replied with a freak try Norland putting up a high kick on the last tackle only to see the wind ball blow back over all their heads and Gav Lightowler racing through to kick and gather to score.
After the break Ricky Storey gathered and put Danny Gardiner in to score and goal again. Norland were playing some good rugby moving the ball out wide for Nathan Parkinson to score in the corner. It was end to end rugby this time Lightowler broke clear to score and add the goal. Norland hit back straight away going up field and finished with Ben Coupland crashing over.
Again the Worms reduced the gap Lightowler going in under the posts to score and goal. Norland thought they had made the game safe with Lee Miller going in under the posts for Danny Gardiner to convert. The Worms man of the match had other ideas Gav Lightowler sprinting to the posts to score his fourth try and fourth goal on the final whistle. The Norland man of the match was Liam Bilton.
