A hard fought win in the last home game saw Stanley Rangers beat Waterhead Warriors 20-18 in the last home game of the season.
Stanley began brightly with a Sam Swire try on the 12th minute, successfully converted by Danny Grice. This was followed by a Danny Grice try which he also converted giving Stanley a 12-0 lead. Waterhead Warriors replied with a try by Danny Hurley converted by Jamie Mayall. Stanley went into the interval 16-6 ahead.
In the closing stages of the game Stanley were 20-12 ahead thanks to further tries from Swire and Grice but Waterhead fought back with a Scott Owen try and in a tense finish the visitors added a last-minute try for Jamie Aspin, converted by Jamie Mayall giving the final score 20-18 to Stanley Rangers.
