Academy End Tour Unbeaten

DAY 19 – Academy have gone through their tour of Australia unbeaten following a 22-10 win over Penrith Panthers this morning.

Lewis Furlong scored after seven minutes, goaled by Gibbons before Penrith hit back to make it 6-4 to the visitors after the first 20 minutes.

Fairclough then bagged a try from a scrum – Gibbons converting for 12-4 – but a cheap knock on handed the Panthers the impetus.

And they took full advantage, going over on 25 minutes to make it a two point game.

Saints blew a couple of chances as the second ’20-minute’ period ended 12-10 to the visitors but they eventually controlled the ball better in the third.

Another two tries went begging before Costello crossed with around three minutes to go.

And Elliot Jenkins completed the win following great work from Levy Nzoungou and Matty Lees.

Final score 22-10.

Saints starting line up:

Costello; Gibbons, C Brown, Furlong, K Brown; Jenkins, Fairclough; Lees, Billsborough, Nzoungou, Weldon, Follin, Lewtas.
