Scarborough turned in perhaps their best performance of the season at Old Brodlieans last week, ending the Halifax-based outfit’s unbeaten home record and earning a bonus point with a four try 32-13 win. Fly-half Tom Harrison ran in a couple of tries with Flanker Devin Ibanez and fullback Tom Ratcliffe bagging one apiece; centre Graeme Hogg added a further twelve points with the boot. This was Scarborough’s fourth win at Brod’s Hipperholme ground in as many years.

TOM HARRISON BAGGED TWO TRIES IN LAST WEEK’S 32-13 WIN AT BRODS

The Seasiders are in action tomorrow at Silver Royd with Heath RFC their opponents. The west Yorkshiremen have had a poor start to the season and currently lie third bottom in Yorkshire One. However their fortunes took an upturn last week when they won their second game of the season 20-10 at Hullensians. Heath’s only other win was at bottom club Acklam (23-12) earlier in the season. However they have had more than a few tight games and have earned six losing bonus points so far this season. A losing bonus point is earned if a team loses by seven points or less.

Coach Lee Douglas has included all three of last week’s try scorers tomorrow as well as ‘semi-retired’ fullback Graeme Jeffrey. Isaac Faamau who has missed the last couple of games with injury is doubtful as is Graham Hogg. Heath won their only game at Silver Royd only weeks after the club moved from Newby scraping home 30-29 in February 2009. Games between the clubs have in general been close run affairs home and away except four seasons ago when the west Yorkshiremen were trounced 79-10 at Silver Royd.
