RYTON put up a spirited defence but were overwhelmed in the second half. With a strong wind, they held Alnwick 12-5 at the interval.

The home side ran in tries through number eight Ellis after forward pressure and Shaun Hutchinson who rounded off a three-quarter move and Bird converted one.

Ryton could only get over through centre Gabel. In the second half, Moralee opened the floodgates with a fine solo try then Ellis was driven over for his second.

Moralee got his second, finishing off a fine break by Shell and then Shell scored his. Bird converted.

One rare statistic – no penalties were awarded.
