Another break by Egan was again initially well defended by York, but Beverley were now pouring forward and when the ball was released to the backs a loose pass was pounced upon by the arch predator Murdoch who went in for his second try this time kicked by Johnson.

Beverley’s final try came as a just reward for their hard working pack who picked and drove to York’s line with blind side flanker, diving over for a well deserved try.

This was a good 43 nil win for Beverley who’s handling in slippery conditions was at times outstanding. Their next game is the second round of the away against Doncaster, hopefully Beverley will be able to maintain their good start to the season.
