Ten minutes later Luke Tong got his reward for another solid display when he tapped home following a Mullen free kick.

Veteran striker Andrew Guest was brought on for the last 20 minutes and got himself on the scoresheet when he hit one of the sweetest strikes of his long career, rather than choosing to run closer to goal and inevitably get robbed of the ball.

Jack Greeves was the standout player with another great display of leadership in the heart of the defence.

Attention now goes to Saturday when SJR host league leaders Dearne & District and they are hoping for a big crowd to see them take on the best team in the league.
