A perfect rugby day saw Workington Zebras travel to Carlisle for only the second time.
A brisk start showed the Zebras as a well improved outfit taking the game to Carlisle from the off. Both sets of backs passed the ball well throughout the game looking to use the width offered by the first team pitch. The first breakthrough came to Carlisle as Harry Grant picked up a lovely pass and headed over the line for the first of his hat-trick.
Zebras pushed back hard however the pace of Sam Windess set him free for his debut try. This was followed by Elliot Baines’ try and then Ben McKean getting his first try for Carlisle despite valiant tackling by the visitors. James Spencer got a conversion to give a half time score of 22 – 0 but a bright start to the second half saw the Zebra’s pressure pay off as Daniel Hilland dodged the defence to score a well deserved try. This evened the play for a while until Harry Grant broke through the centre for his second try and Sam Windess also got a second as he used pace and strength to good effect. With only a few minutes left some good hands saw a move finished off by Elliott Baines for his second. James Spencer added two points to finish the day with a good result for the home team.
Result: 44 v 5
Half time score: 22 v 0
