OLI Higginson was in fine form as Lymm brought their three-match losing run to an end on Saturday.

The number eight had a hand in three of his side’s four tries at Beechwood as they secured a bonus-point victory over York.

Kurt Riley, Cormac Nolan, Steve Pilkington and Nathan Beesley all crossed the whitewash in the 28-12 win, with Nolan also adding a conversion and two penalties.

Higginson’s display was one of those picked out for praise by director of rugby Adam Fletcher post-match along with Riley, James Yates and Ed Morris.

However, Fletcher stressed the need for continued work on discipline, with his side heavily penalised once again.

“Another game where the conditions played a huge part,” he said.

“I thought we managed them really well, especially in the first half.

“To go in at halftime with a 10-poin lead after playing into the wind gave us a lot of confidence.

“There was some huge efforts with Oli, Kurt, Yatesy and Ed Morris putting in outstanding performances.

“It was great to have Joe Senior and Nathan Beesley back, it gave us a threat on the edges.

“Johnny Leota was influential again, especially with some of the shots he put in.

“Discipline is still work in progress but overall I'm very happy with the five points.”

Lymm play their final game of 2021 on Saturday as they welcome Rossendale to Beechwood.

Meanwhile, the seconds and thirds made it a perfect weekend of results for the club’s senior teams as both recorded convincing victories.

The seconds won 56-14 away at Burnage while the thirds were 57-0 victors over Newcastle (Staffs).
