Holt completed the double over Ely to hang on to third place in Division One.

The hosts made the early running and Mears put them in front after nine minutes with a penalty. After 20 minutes, Watson scored his first try for the club, following a good blind side move to increase the lead to 8-0. Six minutes later Brown made a good run down the touch-line to add another try.

With five minutes of the half remaining, following more good inter passing, Rumsby added his name to the try scorers with another unconverted one, making the score 18-0 at the break.

Holt were in no mood to relax after the break and acting captain Woods intercepted a pass at least 30 yards from the Ely goal line, to power through for another unconverted try.

Watson scored his second try of the match, which again was not converted, as Holt ran out comfortable winners.
