13/14 1st XV. Old Crossleyans 32 - 13 1st XV

Northern started strongly and forward pressure from the kick off resulted in a try from Pat Power after just 3 minutes. Old Crocs responded with 2 penalties but a penalty from Donal Collins increased Northern's lead to 10 - 6. A try from Old Crocs just before half-time took them into a 3 point lead. The score was leveled soon after half-time with another Donal penalty. At this point injuries to key players and use of all Northern's replacements allowed Old Crocs to score 3 further tries and obtain a bonus point. However it was not all one-way traffic as Northern had the majority of possession and territory and were camped on the Old Crocs 5 meter line for long periods but were held back by excellent defence.
