The stakes where high and the conditions were tough in the heavy rain...

..away at Farnley for the final game of the Birstall season with the away team one win away from securing the league.

In a first half littered with handling errors from both teams, it was Birstall Victoria who came on top, scrum half Mick Dyson kicking an early penalty on 12 minutes and full back Will Brooke scoring a great solo effort after 25 minutes to give Birstall a half time lead of 8 points to nil.

Birstall Victoria came out for the second half in a confident mood with some great running and heavy tackling from their forwards. Leading the way was loose forward Jonni Parrish, supported superbly by props Danny Hainswoth & Anthony Fallas.

With good field position scrum half Dyson & stand off Will Copley took control of the game and tries followed in quick succession. Full back Brooke crossed the whitewash on 52 minutes, centre Damon Fletcher touched down after 65 minutes and full back Brooke completed his hat trick, scoring Birstall Victoria’s final try on 72 minutes.

With scrum half Mick Dyson 100% again with his goal kicking Birstall came out easy winners at 26 points to nil.

After a great team performance it was a difficult man of the match choice for coaches Matthew Gowland & Brendan Sheridan, but Will Brooke got the nod after scoring an hat trick, closely followed by the impressive Jonni Parrish.
