OLD Rishworthians, second in Yorkshire Two, scored six tries to win 43-22 in Yarnbury's first home game of of the New Year.

With the wind at their backs, the home side immediately took the game into the opponent's half, working the blind side and running the ball rather than kicking for position. However, several attacks coming to nothing around the 22-metre area.

Having lost their main jumper, George Bowen, in the warm up, Yarnbury's attacking threat at set piece was disrupted but they were dominate in the scrums in the first half.

In a disjointed half, Rishworthians took their chances against the wind, firstly with a penalty from Joe Billings. An aggressive interception from back row, Simanu Tusiga, on the halfway line gave the powerful wing forward an easy run in under the posts.

The Horsforth side made amends with another blind side move to get winger Connor Moreton away down the left to round the opposition for a try, but in the swirling conditions Danny Pound could not convert.

In the second half, Tusiga took a short pass and walked in for his second try. He added another try on 60 minutes, which Billings converted.

Cameron Newby scored a try for Yarnbury but Jack Brown missed with the conversion. The game opened up and Rishworthians scored two more tries through Phil Kershaw and Jack Smart. Billings struck the conversions in impressive style using the wind.

After several barging runs, James Falgate went 50 metres to score under the posts with Brown converting. Then Josh Bell scored in the corner for Yarnbury's fourth try. Unfortunately, Rishworthians score a sixth converted try through Tom Oldroyd.
