Crusaders put successive defeats behind them with a hard-fought win in Suffolk.

An early uncoverted try gave Woodbridge the perfect start but the visitors were soon back on level terms after an impressive display of agility from second row Alex Widdrington, who spun on a sixpence to touch down in the corner.

Woodbridge responded with their second converted try and a penalty but Crusaders got it back to 13-10 with Jamie Dack touching down after a pass from George King.

Crusaders went in front for the first time after the interval when a break from the back of the scrum by Robert Loone opened up the defence and the ball was moved wide through several pairs of hands for Lewis Kenworthy to touch down.

Crusaders increased their lead when their forwards drove over for a bonus point try that went uncoverted. Woodbridge responded with a penalty but Crusaders held on for a win that delighted skipper Louis White.
