13/14 1st XV. 1st XV 3 - 17 Morpeth

This was always going to be difficult with Northern missing 5 regular 2nd-row players. Thanks are due to Barry Blackburn and Lee Archer for stepping into the engine room. From the start Northern found it difficult to get out of their own half and a penalty and converted try from Morpeth took them to a half-time lead of 10 - 0. A drop goal from Donal Collins early in the second half gave Northern a glimpse of a revival, but that is what it was, just a glimpse. A second try from Morpeth gave them a deserved win.
