Scarborough RUFC are looking to earn their first Regional 2 North East win of the season at basement club Moortown this Saturday after their 29-8 home loss against Malton & Norton at a warm Silver Royd last weekend.

Backed by a big crowd, Scarborough made an ideal start courtesy of the returning Matty Young, the winger scoring the first try of the match to give his side a 5-0 lead. Tom Harrison missed the conversion, but stepped up minutes later to extend his side’s lead to 8-0 inside the first 10 minutes.

The visitors came roaring back, and went within one point after captain Sam Triffitt bundled over. Paul Angus added the conversion. Malton then took the lead for the first time with scrum-half Angus at the centre of it and scoring for 12-8.

But they didn’t let this bother them and further extended their lead as the impressive Angus bagged his second try. Before stepping up and converting the try to round of a 29-8 victory.
