Crusaders completed the double over a Beccles side determined to put on a good performance in front of a big crowd.

The deadlock was broken midway through the first half when from a penalty Crusaders drove a five-metre scrum over the line for Rob Dye to score an unconverted try.

Quick hands out to the wing earned them a second try when Jamie Dack unlocked the Beccles defence with a good touchdown. With Gareth Drewery's conversion falling short it was 10-0 at half-time.

Coach Phil O'Brien brought on Henry Mower to inject some pace and the youngster made an impact by scoring a third try with a determined run which Robert Loone converted. A late try from substitute Callum Reader then secured the bonus point.

Meanwhile Norwich Union won 24-7 at Norwich II in Eastern Counties 2N (Tries: Matthew Cook, Graham Hunt 2, Lloyd Davis. Conversions: Davis 2).
