Local lads help Cougars sink Navy

SOUTH Cumbria trio Chris Warren, Jack Sutherland and Danny Morrow were all among the try-scorers in BARLA Great Britain Cougars’ 38-16 victory over the Royal Navy.

LIONS ROAR: From left to right, Jack Sutherland (Barrow Island), Chris Warren (Millom), Danny Morrow (Walney Central) and Dan Sayle (Dalton)

The game – part of the build-up to the GB under-23s’ trip to Jamaica in June – was a physical clash of styles that brought the best out of the BARLA side.

It was Millom full-back Warren who gave the visitors a third-minute lead and provided the platform to build an impressive advantage of 16-0, before the Navy responded. Walney’s Morrow got in on the scoring act 12 minutes into the second half when he raced 40 metres down the right-hand side brushing off defenders to score in the corner to make it 20-6.

An exchange of tries kept the Navy within range until late in the game when substitute prop Sutherland (Barrow Island) added his name to the list of try scorers and Dalton’s Dan Sayle, who took over the goal-kicking duties, added the extra points. Man-of-the-match and skipper Davey Jones (Widnes West Bank) rounded off the victory with the final try.
