KENDAL Rugby Club saw another impressive win when they took on their old rivals Firwood Waterloo.

Two changes had been made to the squad since the Penrith game last weekend, with Matt Houghton being injured while Ben Leacock was preferred to Liam Hayton.

The early waves of attack were fairly even between the two sides before Kendal’s maul was stopped over the line, to give their opponent a chance to clear their lines.

The Kendal defence held up against the power of Waterloo and their progress was slowed.

The opening score came after twenty-three minutes. When Ben Dixon went forward with Lewis Kincart in support to go over for the try.

After a string of penalties, Waterloo had the lead a conversion to make it 5v7.

Waterloo pressed their advantage and secured a 14-5 lead after another try and a conversion.

Dane Blenkharn came off the bench to replace Greg Wrathall at the start of the second half.

During the second half, Kendal fought back.

The ball reached Ben Dixon who again did the hard work, before getting the ball away to Dan Shorrock, who finished weaving through the Waterloo defence for the try, which Chris Park converted to make it 12-14.

Waterloo later made it 17 points after a kick.

After several waves of attack, Reece Tomlinson managed to pass the ball to Kris Bratton, who went over to tie the scores.

Chris Park converted off the post to give Kendal back the lead. 19v17 after nine minutes into the half.

Kendal was able to take control by securing yet another good try and a kick thanks to team work from Danny Barker, Dixon and Weightman.

Barker went forward and covered a lot of ground before reaching Dixon who gave it to Weightman who finished the job.

Waterloo was still able to mount an offensive and later took a penalty to make it 26-25.

After reaching 33 points, Kendal finished the game with an impressive try from Ben Dixon which made it 38-25.
