The half-time introduction of the bench helped to turn the screw in the control of the game and Leon Counsell finished off a good team try. A line-out was won by Ash Locker, who set up the rolling maul which enabled Jacob Swain to peel off and score the bonus point.
Gordano finished the game strongly, scoring a late try and pushed hard for another. Oli Coppage was named as the Phoenix Autobody man of the match.
