Hornets though showed in no uncertain terms that they were the superior side stinging the Yamaha Caribs team with regular tries and conversions which proved very frustrating for the Caribs side.

Mc Kenzie led the way with three tries while Christopher Singh, Troy Bascomb and Elwin Chase supported with a try each while Ryan George made four conversions.

For Yamaha Caribs, Butts scored two tries and Henry and Walter George one each while Henry scored the lone conversion.
