Top of the table North Shields Crusaders made the short trip to Seghill Deputies for this River Derwent County League fixture.

The Crusaders were missing a few key players meaning Tommy Rendles filled in a scrum half and Kyle Wharton stepped into fly half. In the pack Lee Brown made his Crusaders debut in the second row.

As a result Seghill ran out comfortable winners.

In the first half they scored two tries, a penalty and one conversion to lead 15-0. Two converted second half tries made the final score 29-0. Man-of-the-match for the Crusaders was emergency flanker Iain Finlay. Next week the Crusaders are away to Wallsend Warriors.
