Rockcliff upped the gears in the second half and got their reward when winger Steven Scott scored a brilliant individual try, breaking away down the blind side and cutting in to score just wide of the posts.

Webster added the conversion for a 10-5 lead.

Fit again second row forward Stu Thomson then barrelled his way through for Rockcliff’s second try of the game, again converted by Webster, for 17-5.

With their tails up, the Red and Golds pressed on and were rewarded when Webster slotted home his second penalty of the game for 20-5.

Seaham came back with a late converted try after their full-back finished a well worked move to touch down, making the final score 20-10.

Next week Rockcliff travel to Winlaton.
