In men’s action, Police took on a much improved Mariners team lead by Rory O’Kelly-Lynch, who accounted for 10 of the 15 points for the team. O’Kelly-Lynch scored a try, knocked over a conversion and a penalty to complement burly prop Dustin Archibolds try.

Police responded with tries from Chiquon Smith and Stephen Smit with the deadly boot of veteran Michael Kane leading the way with two penalties and a conversion. A tense see-saw encounter saw the Polcie eventually edge out Mariners 18-15.

Winger Corey Boyce scored one try and a good day by Conor McGowan saw the standoff score a try,a penalty and two conversions taking his personal tally to 12 points.
