The Lions continued to promote their inclusive approach and were again able to include a number of colts in the squad.
Whole place buzzing
Park started like a team possessed and from the kick off used a series of forward surges to put Alnwick on the back foot. Good use of possession saw the backs involved early, with both centres and Liam B featuring in some good attacks. However, despite dominating possession and territory a degree of inexperience, poor hands and Solid Alnwick defence meant the scoreboard was not troubled until the 11th minute when Andrew Walker spotted a chink in the defence and was quick witted enough to ghost through the gap and score, Ben A adding the extras.
