TYLDESLEY 13 LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 48
Liverpool St Helens returned to winning ways in the ADM Premier Division with a convincing win over lowly Tyldesley, but on a calm January day and an unusually balmy climate, they made heavy weather of it, particularly in the first half.
A muddling first forty minutes saw LSH score three tries, two from Darren Wilson once again in supreme form throughout skilfully orchestrating his side, and one from winger Josh Lynch, interspersed with two from Tyldesley, and punctuated by random skirmishes amongst players on both sides, seemingly having something to prove after a three week lay-
The home side landed a penalty early in the second half to come within one score of LSH at 13-
This brought five more tries. The first from McBride after a quick tap penalty from Lynch; an opportunist score from Dan Webster after a quickly taken line out from Jamie Morris; a try for Morris himself bursting through the middle of the park; a blockbuster from John Arnold, nearly doing himself an injury with an exaggerated dive over the line and finally a second from Lynch, once again having another fine game. Two conversions from McBride made it 13-
