The home side struck first when Chris Frodsham collected a loose ball on the half-way line to run in under the sticks and leave Quinn to knock over the easy extras.

Wath Brow were quick to reply though as Ryan Amor scored their opener but Heath then scored two tries as Lynch, who wasman of the match, scored a converted try.

Then a great break from Bradshaw put Matty Holding down the right wing like a steam train and nothing was going to stop him from scoring. This gave Heath a comfortable 18-4 lead but the Hornets were not ready to give up and scored two unconverted tries before the break from Fran King and Matty Huby to narrow the lead to 18-12.

Wath Brow continued with a strong start to the second half as Richard Huby scored and the conversion by Peter Caddy levelled the scores at 18 all.

Strong running from Danny Davies saw him score in his debut for the Crusaders to hand the lead back to Thatto but Wath Brow once again replied and with a try from James Dixon which Caddy converted they took the lead for the first time with 20 minutes to go.

Alex McClurg impressed with some great footwork shortly after to score again for the hosts with Quinn adding the extras.

In the final 10 minutes the Cumbrians locked Thatto in their own half, but all to no avail.



Are we neglecting north Cumbria's heritage and tourist attractions while concentrating on the Lake District?

Yes, the Lakes have always taken all the investment

No, nothing in the north can compare with anything the Lake District

Nothing will change now. We are Cumbria's forgotten corner
