Scarborough RUFC claimed a superb 38-19 win at Old Brodleians in the Yorkshire Shield.

The home side took the lead early on with a try under the posts which was converted to make it 7-0, but Tom Ratcliffe's converted try put Scarborough on level terms.

Phil Watson's try, converted by Tom Harrison made it 14-7 to Scarborough and they pulled clear with a Jordi Wakeham try, also converted by Harrison.

The hosts pulled it back to 21-14 before half-time with their second converted try.

Some cracking play early in the second half saw YDO Jimmy Perrett cross over to put Scarborough 26-14 ahead, but once again Brods charged back, and made it 26-19 with a try of their own.

Perrett's superb 80-metre break saw the visitors pull into a 31-19 lead, and Matty Jones made sure of Scarborough's place in next round with another try to cap a superb performance by Simon Smith's troops.
