Rugby Lions (20) 20  Waterloo (3) 9
[ALLIED DUNBAR PREMIERSHIP TWO]

Rugby Lions bounced back from defeat at Worcester to beat Waterloo comfortably in their fourth victory of the season.

They had to withstand intense second half pressure after scoring all their points in the first thirty minutes, but they held out for a praiseworthy win over the fourth placed side.

The Lions roared into a tremendous lead, scoring points almost at will in the first half hour.

The trusty boot of Martyn Davies put Rugby ahead with an early penalty and then had to soak up a lot of pressure until quick thinking brought them another score.

They were awarded a penalty on half way and Morgan took a quick tap before feeding Tarbuck who sprint into space before sending in Bale in the corner. Davies converted and Rugby were 10-0 in the lead after 12 minutes.

They delighted their supporters by doubling their score in a short space of time. Davies kicked another penalty goal and then Waterloo conceded a penalty try and Davies added the conversion.

Waterloo scored their first points, a penalty goal, with half-time approaching.

Lions were playing against a tide of attacks in the second period but Waterloo could only add to their score through two penalties from Griffiths.
