Tries came from Eric Parfrey and Ian Sheridan together with a penalty try. Bill Duggan converted three out of three. A visitor to their changing room after might have thought they were in a time tunnel, as the players celebrated listening to music which included, wait for it, Waterloo by Abba – 1974. Their Pennant colleagues were less fortunate losing 5-19 to Seapoint.
