WITH the title already secured, Hornets went into their final league game of the season aiming to retain their 100 per cent home record against a stubborn Gordano team.

It was the visitors who were first to score on 12 minutes, but after a series of penalties and line-outs, captain Mike Long orchestrated a levelling opportunity for leading try scorer Aedan Coleman. Jack Osborne kicked the conversion for a two-point lead.

Matt Cates made a cameo appearance on the Gordano wing when they were temporarily down to 14 men and had a hand in their try just before the break to make the score 14-10.
