The Tigers then made a break through Matt McCarthy and the ball went through the hands to Luke Turner, who ran a perfect support line to touch down for a converted try.

In the second half was much of the same, the game was back and forth. Cantabs pulled ahead with two unconverted tries.

The Tigers fought hard in dying minutes of the game and Scott Paul darted in the corner for a converted try.

In the last play of the game the Tigers made it to the twenty-two before knocking-on the ball to end the contest.

Final score: 22-20 to Cantabs.
