Man of the match

Deakin at inside centre was among the scorers while outside centre Tim Elliot ran in two tries and his brother Tom Elliot, on the wing, another.

Phoenix had got off to a good start when blind side flanker Dan Morris touched down between the posts with Dan Storey converting, but in the windy conditions stand-off Storey managed only one penalty goal before converting his own try which rounded off the scoring with ten minutes to go.

Elsewhere, Rotherham Clifton won 16-10 over Wensleydale in Yorkshire Five with fly-half Brian Lewis scoring their try and Sam Parker kicking the conversion and three penalties.
