Scunthorpe Stormers cruise to Victory The Stormers took two teams to the Old Brodlieans Festival with high hopes of success after the plate win in the NLD tournament.

Scunthorpe B played against Hull Ionians, Huddersfield and Sheffield. Although the team did not win a match so much good experience was had by this team. Fantastic play by the team saw Hall score his first ever try which was followed by two more. The effort and team work within this team shows great potential for the near future let alone the long term prospects.
Scunthorpe A played against Old Rishworthians, Morley and Old Brodleians. The first game was lost 4 - 3 but the other games in the pool were wins leaving the Stormers in second place and through to the semi's. In an action packed semi final against the other pool winners the Stormers beat Sheffield 4 - 3 to win a place into the cup final against the only team to beat them. With the slope the Stormers led at half time 4 try's to 2, the second half had to be stronger to hold the Old Rishworthians against such a slope. The defence held strong only allowing one try in although they did not score the hard work with it was enough to win 4 - 3.
Scorers are as follows, alphabetically:
Brewster 1
Conroy 8
Murr 3
Warburton 4
Williams 2
A fine performance by both teams, plenty to look forward to with a tour to Scarborough in a fortnight with the Stormers hoping to improve on their second place last year.
Player of the day goes to Euan Hall.
