Fellow England U18 Zion Tordoff also came up with the goods as the 16 year old finished with 17 and 10 in a victory that was dominated by the poise and outstanding control of Myerscough’s youngsters.

“It was a pleasure to see the guys step up and once again demonstrate their ability to play at the senior level, I am hopeful we can take this form into the game against Doncaster”, added Coach Gayle.

Doncaster, who knocked Myerscough out of the National Shield last month, are a team who have found great success in D3 having suffered only their first defeat last weekend at the hand of Newcastle Knights.

Both teams will be looking to prove a point as they meet on Saturday in what is sure to be a tough away day for Myerscough.

Elsewhere Coach Bernard will look to extend Myerscough’s run the U18’s National Cup with a trip to Newcastle Eagles. A win on Sunday will secure a spot in the quarter finals.
