Summary:l

Like the Boxing Day derby earlier in this season, this was also was a game hampered by Heavy Rain. It was a tight first half in which two Kel Coslett penalty goals had been responded to with a drop goal from David Hill for a 4-2 half time score. After the break though Saints romped away to an easy win in the end.
