But Five Acres scored an incredible Fiji-esque try, showcasing brilliant team handling and offloading throughout the team, which left the home side at sixes and sevens.
However, JK replied with a well-worked try of their own, using great support play and communication from Rosie Simpson and Layla Beard, which was finished off by the speedster on the wing. In the end, John Kyrle proved too strong for the visitors and ran out well-deserved winners by 75-20.
