LIVERPOOL COLLEGIATE 21 LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 41
For only the second time in their history, LSH made the trip back to Liverpool Cricket Club, where it all began 162 years ago. At that time the cricketers were based in Edge Hill and it was there that Richard Sykes and Frank Albert Mather brought players together for the first ever Open game of Rugby Union.
On Saturday both sides produced an entertaining game worthy of both clubs heritage, with nine tries, played in a good spirit, due in part to excellent handling from a young referee.
Sam Walker opened the scoring for LSH in the seventh minute after a break from full back Alex McBride enabled the young winger to race over, McBride converting. 0-
Centre Josh Ganson extended the lead soon after the break with a neatly taken try to collect the bonus point, 7-
