Shields started strongly, dominating possession and territory and eventually scored after 24 minutes through Aaron Wilcox. Adam Houston converted for 7-0. Medicals immediately responded and a converted try made it 7-7.

Houston then clipped the post with a penalty attempt and right on half time Shields’ prop Jack Doran was yellow carded for a high tackle and Medicals converted the penalty for 7-10.

In the second half Medicals piled the pressure on and a late try gave the visitors their victory.
