Thornhill second row Simon Nelson threw a punch and was sent to the sin-bin and Hill took advantage as Leon Donovan followed up a kick to score a try in the corner whichSewell converted.

Hodgson landed a penalty to draw Thornhill level 12-12 while after the break a Gaz Walker try goaled by Sewell edged the hosts ahead.

Walker made his presence felt with a strong break which sent Scott Woodcock close before a super Broadhead pass sent Anthony Harris over for a try. Hodgson’s goal tied the scores.

Hill nudged ahead with a converted try but Thornhill replied as Walker took them close before Broadhead put Liam Morley through a gap and over for a try.

Hodgson converted and he was on target twice more late on after a brace of tries from Walker.
