11:18am Monday 28th October 2013 in Sport
York RI RUFC notched their first Yorkshire Four win of the season beating visitors Hessle 26-13.
RI started well contesting fiercely and holding possession despite being against the wind.
But it took 20 minutes before the breakthrough with a superb practiced move in the backs seeing Tom Greaves score under the sticks. Ten minutes later Andy Brentnall scored out wise.
Hessle countered with a try and a penalty to cut the deficit at half-time to 14-8.
The second half saw a fantastic display from the forwards dominating, particularly in the scrum.
Frazer Land and Ewan Metcalfe both crossed, each try converted by Baptiste Brui.
Hessle bagged a late try but RI comfortably saw out time with Alec Webster man of the match.
