CALLUM Morris' second try of the game proved decisive in Lymm's 26-24 win at Stockport.

Table-topping Lymm, who recovered from 7-0 and 12-7 deficits to lead 21-12 at the break, were never able to shake off their hosts who scored their final converted try with the last play of the game.

It meant Morris' sprint to the line from a quickly taken penalty 15 minutes into the second half not only earned his side's attacking bonus point but the return to winning ways as well, following the previous week's home defeat to Macclesfield.

Lymm were not able to kick on and add to their score through a mix of bad choice of and execution of kick, poor possession retention and a lack of vision.

Director of rugby Adam Fletcher said: “The character the lads showed to bounce back from a really tough loss the previous week was excellent. We weren't at our best but found a way to get the five points.

“I thought our scrum was excellent all game and gave us a good attacking platform. We scored some excellent tries but also left a couple out there. When we kept hold of the ball for multiple phases our attack caused them problems but we just lacked a bit of execution.

“Another big week ahead with the focus on improving our execution and skill set ready for Saturday's trip to Manchester."

Centre Joe Watson made his 100th appearance for the Lymm first XV, with Alex Pantechis and Harry Martin getting their names alongside Morris on the try sheet.

Lymm, 1-18: Gavin Woods, Rob Makin, Matty Hand, James Yates, Sam Dickenson, Joe Watson, Harry Saxton-Martin, Rhys Lilly, Cal Morris, Tom Shard, Jame, Ben Thompson, Ben Simpson.
