Front – Connor McKay, Matthew Wilkinson, Sam Slinger, Jason Ward, Carlton Whitfield, Brett Malloy, Peter Wood and Marc Stephens

It was another good display of rugby from Cockermouth who were finishing off the season with a convincing win, having lost just one home game all season.

Cockermouth opened the scoring when Ben Swift made a good break and slipped the ball to the impressive Brett Malloy to score.

Then a good burst of speed from Robert Ward earned him the second try for Cockermouth. Big Ben Agnew then powered over for the third try and just before the break another good move was finished off again by Malloy to give the home side a 20-0 half-time lead. Creighton came out more determined in the second half and held their line for the first 20 minutes.

Then a quick tap and a good drive gave Sam Slinger a well deserved try as he was one of Cockermouth's top performers on the day.

A sixth try was added by the pacey Ben Swift and the scoring was completed when good forward play, followed by good handling by the backs ended with Will Gate unselfishly putting Peter Wood in at the corner.
