Soon after there was a debut try for Sam Warburton out pacing the defence to give Scunthorpe a two try lead. Market rasen then applied pressure towards the Greens line only for a knock on which the alert Charlie Murr picked up and accelerated away for a great solo effort. Half Time Greens 3 tries Mkt Rasen 0.
The second half was a different story as the greens and market rasen exchanged six tags numerous times before Rasen broke through to score. After more pressure nearing the end of the game Rasen broke through again out pacing the greens defence to score.

Further pressure by the Greens saw Jack Preston make a good run down the wing only to be tagged just short of the line. Another passage of good play by the Greens saw Alfie Lindstrom score his debut try diving over the line.
