In miserable wet conditions a large crowd witnessed a highly competitive contest. The away side began strongly and opened the scoring with a debut try by Elliot Wallace, who produced a devastating turn of pace to out sprint the home defence in a thrilling length of the field score. An easy conversion from Joe Rose eased the Bulls into a six point lead. A neat chip kick from the West’s standoff produced a try in the left had corner for the home team and this was soon followed up with a strong forward surge from the West Hull team which produced a try close-in under the posts and with an added conversion saw West Hull take the lead. A solid display from the Bulls forwards lead by Man of the Match Harry Simpson kept the away side in contention throughout the half and this pressure paid off as Dylan Rymer latched onto a pass following a neat handling move by scoring in the right hand corner. With the scores tied at ten points all at the interval this reflected an evenly matched contest in the first half.
West Hull took the game by the scruff of the neck and produced some thrilling flowing rugby to run out easy winners in the second half. Liam Swatman did his utmost to keep the opposition quiet with an excellent display of cover tackling and prompting in attack but a tired looking Bulls outfit could not stop two excellent tries from the West Hull second row forward. The final whistle saw a fourteen point gap between the two sides.
