KENDAL returned to the field and saw an impressive win over Broughton Park.

Having previously played four away games, Kendal sought to restore the form that took the team to four wins at the season’s beginning.

Although there was a narrow loss at Waterloo two weeks before.

The visitors came into the game having yet to claim a win but faced two of the top three and picked up losing bonus points in the other two games.

Despite the advantage, Kendal had a faulty start and a handling error gave Broughton Park the ball back from the kick off.

A penalty put them on the attack and they came at Kendal as hard as they could.

Reece Tomlinson came close to stealing the lineout ball, but it came back on the Broughton Park side, and they put Kendal under pressure in the twenty-two.

Ben Dixon took Broughton Park ball close to his own line and set off on a length of the field run. He out ran his pursuers he managed to go in under the posts, with Chris Park adding the conversion for a most unlikely lead of seven.

Kendal’s lead increased again to 14-0 after the 15-minute point, when James Gough and Glen Weightman’s team work claimed the points, plus another kick from Park.

Former Kendal player, Rory Blakeney-Edwards, who had re-joined Broughton Park after getting work in Manchester, opened his teams scoring after twenty-five minutes with a penalty.

However, Kendal was later awarded a penalty after Glen Weightman used one of the new laws to roll a kick from just inside his own half, into the Broughton Park twenty-two to give Kendal an attacking lineout.

Reece Tomlinson gathered the throw and the pack drove for the line.

With the referee already playing advantage, when Broughton Park players came in to stop the move on the line, the referee awarded a penalty try to make it 21-3.

After another try from Broughton they increased their score to ten, and Kendal added three more points with a kick.

Chris Park extended the Kendal lead with a penalty after twelve minutes.

After twenty minutes Broughton Park added a second try which came thanks to Josh Maddock going over, with Rory Blakeney Edwards adding the conversion to put his team on 24-17.

Broughton were able to catch up and claim five more points leaving Kendal needing to increase their original lead even further.

After being awarded a penalty, Weightman put a kick in the corner and once again James Gough was able to cross the line. Another kick put Kendal back comfortably ahead on 31.

They were able to hold out for win on 31-17.

Greg Wrathall was named as man of the match for Kendal.
