shares

WITHIN two minutes, Ipswich’s Tim Hopkins crossed the line for a try, converted by Craig Burrows.

What followed was a highly-entertaining half of rugby by quite easily the best opposition the home side have faced this season.

Scrum half John Lasbrey went over on 14 minutes taking the score to 12-0.

Holt replied with the first breach of the Ipswich line this season with a converted try.

Tim Lloyd then got in on the action with a try on 24 minutes which Burrows converted.

However Holt promptly replied with an unconverted one of their own.

The next score was critical. Brad James went on one of his close-range bullocking runs and scored an unconverted try.

Holt narrowed the gap before half-time to make the interval score 26-15 to the hosts.

In the second period, Ipswich had too much fire power in nearly every position.

Sides of lesser mettle than Holt would have collapsed.

By 54 minutes Ipswich had scored two converted tries through Lloyd and Josh James.

Further tries followed from Brad James and local boy Aquila Toro to make the final score 52-18
