Teachers taught a lesson

Mariners made it back-to-back wins in the Bermuda Rugby Football Union Men's League after cruising to a 50-24 victory over Teachers.

Having pulled off an upset by toppling league-leaders Renegades in a hard-fought 32-26 win last time out, Mariners built on that momentum with another impressive display.

Avery Williams, Rory Dublin, Chiquon Smith and Mikle Dill all got on the scoresheet for Mariners, while Janeko Francis, Corey Boyce, Aldo Campbell, Conor McGowan and George Peets added the Teachers points.

Elsewhere, Renegades failed to arrest their dip in form slipping to a second-straight loss, going down to a narrow 20-1 defeat at the hands of Police.

Stephen Smith crashed over with two tries while Spencer and grabbed another and Jayde Albertze added the extras to guide their side to victory. Delacruz Coetzer, Peter Dunkerley, Cedric Ennis and David Wheatley scored the Renegade points.

In the Women's League, tries from Deneka Borden, Nya Heyliger, Anthi Xipoila, Gina Newson and Amanda Swan helped secure a 25-15 victory over Teachers. Lauren Rothwell and Cerise Woodley got on the scoresheet for the opposition.

Meanwhile, Renegades eased to a 29-10 win over Police as Ashley Godek, Maeve Dillon, Melissa Franklin and Jessica Cassidy all crashed over for tries with Laura Mulligan and Amy Harvey adding the extras.

Mika Tomita and Kierra Smith scored the points for Police.
