Bishop had home advantage for the second week in a row playing host to Yarm. Bishop started the game on the front foot and continued this tempo for the full game competing for every ball and looking to put last week's narrow defeat behind them.

With good early pressure from the forwards Bishop scored their first try from a driving maul with lock Jack Tindle claiming the try which was converted by Fly half Tim Tombling 7-0 Tombling was in fine form and kicked intelligently all game constantly pinning Yarm back into their own half. From such a kick Bishop stole the ball from the lineout Tindle drove forward off loaded to Tombling to score the try which he then converted 14-0. The Bishop players were now hungry for the ball and looked like scoring every time they went forward.

Bishop were now putting together some good phases with second row John Sayers taking the ball forward off-loading to flanker Edwards who fed winger McNeillie to comfortably score the try which was converted by Tombling 21-0. Bishop were now rampant and following a well-rehearsed move from the scrum flanker Gareth Edwards drew the defender to leave the way open for winger Steve McNeillie to outpace the Yarm full back and score his second try which Tombling converted 28-0. With the bonus point secured Bishop didn't take their foot off the gas but still had a tendency to commit silly penalties. The Bishop backs were now heavily involved in all the moves something that they have been desperate for and winger Mike Halladay took the ball at pace and neatly stepped the Yarm full back to score in the corner which Tombling converted 35-0. With Bishop pressing all the time winger Halladay out muscled the Yarm backs to score his second try which Tombling again converted to take the score at half time to 42-0. And cap an excellent first half performance.

Bishop were never going to let Yarm into this game and soon added to the scoreboard following a good run by full back Zac Hole down the wing who fed Edwards who offloaded to hooker Leigh Cox to score the try which Tombling converted 49-0. With Bishop utilising their subs inside centre James Stronach was replaced by Gwyn Evans who was soon in the action using his strength to drive forward and score the try which Tombling converted 56-0. The final try of the game was scored by open-side Flanker Michael Beach who after giving a tireless performance showed what a fine athlete he is by intercepting the ball in his own half and out pacing the Yarm players to score under the posts which Tombling converted taking the score to 63-0 at the final whistle.

An excellent team performance to score nine tries unanswered. Tombling capped a fine individual performance by kicking nine conversions and scoring a try amassing 23 points in the process.
