With top of the table Vale of Lune at home to second placed Stockport a close match might have been expected but Vale of Lune dominated the scoring in the second half to inflict a convincing defeat on their visitors. Stockport started both halves with well worked tries but Vale were onto the Stockport rolling maul and defended it well, while their pace from their own half meant the Stockport defence was stretched whenever the Vale backs got a chance to run from deep. Despite seeming to dominate possession and territory for much of the game Stockport were unable to break through a well organised Vale defence, which kept the Stockport backs from making any significant breaks. With a final score of 53-17 Stockport drop to 3rd place in the table.

With Vale unable to deal with the kick off Stockport won an early penalty and from the line out the maul took Stockport to the line and hooker Andy BROADHURST got the touch down, the conversion attempt was narrowly wide but Stockport were ahead after only 2 minutes. Vale replied quickly as a short side line out move gave their hooker an easy score to make it 5-5 after 7 minutes. There was what seemed an endless stream of penalties for both sides before Vale won a scrum on half way and their very quick No 14 beat all the Stockport defenders to score, he converted his own try. With Simon GREEN again prominent for Stockport the visitors had some good spells but were unable to take advantage, while Vale seemed to score each time they got into the Stockport half, their next try came with a break from a scrum on the Stockport 22 as the Number 8 bounced off the tacklers to score under the posts for a 19-5 lead. Stockport lost Mike KACIUBSKYJ and Andy BROADHURST to injury but Tom GARDNER and Dudley SOUTHERN came on to replace them. A great run by Jack WILSON gave his brother Joe an opportunity to run down the wing but a high tackle ended the effort. Vale lost the tackler to a yellow card. Some promising attacks by Stockport resulted in a number of kickable penalties but the line out option was taken each time and the Vale defence held out to make it 19-5 at half time.

Stockport again started the half well and after some very good passing and recycling fly half Tom EATON made a break into the Vale 22, flanker Kieran HIBBS was on hand to continue the move and scrum half Tom DUFFY took his pass and ran in the last 10metres to score, Eaton converted for 12-19. The Stockport backs were more effective than in the first half and the game was looking as if it could be tight but the Vale No 14 converted a penalty form 45 metres to take it to 22-12. The wing made another break from his own 22 and after he was tackled in the Stockport 22 the ball was recycled and the home side had another try for 27-12. Vale were getting good continuity with their speed and support play and a try by their No 8 followed quickly for 34-12. Stockport then had a good spell winning penalties at two scrums, a good run by Green gave a chance for Joe WILSON but he was put into touch just short. Vale added their 6th try when a Stockport attack broke down 10 metres from the Vale line and as the ball was hacked on their chasing players beat the Stockport defence to the touch down for 39-12. The next try came as a knock on gave Vale possession on half way and their 2nd row beat the tacklers to score to make it 46-12. Simon GREEN secured possession from the kick off and a good run created an opportunity for coach Dean SCHOFIELD to score, Kieran HIBBS again providing the link for 46-17. Vale ran freely to score a final try to make it 53-17 at the close.
