First match for 4 weeks for both these sides saw an error strewn first half hour of little quality until 17 yr old Joseph Ounsley on his senior debut broke from his own 22 to sprint 80m to score under the posts, converting his own try for 0-7. A period of good play in the forwards then allowed James Donoghue to score, converted by Ounsley for 0-14 at halftime. From the restart the kickoff was not claimed and the hosts capitalised with an unconverted try 5-14. Goole responded and Ounsley kicked through a loose ball on halfway and won the race to touchdown converting his own score for 5-21. Good phase play by Rasen saw them add another unconverted try for 10-21 before the best try of the game, several half breaks and offloads before James Donoghue added his second score, converted by Ounsley for 28-10. 2 consolation try’s, a little soft from Goole’s perspective, brought the hosts within 8 points before the final whistle. Good start to the year from the 3s and in man of the match Joseph Ounsley, another product of the Goole mini and junior section, the club have another great prospect joining the senior ranks.
