The Saints U17’s Scholarship side continued their unbeaten start to the season with another fine display to beat the Tigers.
HIGHLIGHTS – Subscribers can watch the FULL game on Saints TV.
Four first half tries from Alfie Whittle, Connor Morley, Sam Haynes and Ryan Wood, realistically put the game beyond reach of the visitors.
Haynes and Wood followed up their first half efforts with tries in the second period. Matty Parkes and Kyal Barton rounded off the scoring for the Saints with Ellis Archer successful from all but one of his conversion attempts.
Whittle and his wing partner Kean Gilford continually worried the Tigers along with the powerful Haynes. Archer orchestrated the Saints attack bringing the best out of Matty Parkes and the outstanding McKenzie Buckley.
