WATERLOO eased concerns at Blundellsands to move up to eighth in National Three North following a bonus try 28-13 win at home to Kendal.
The Cumbrians took the early lead with a penalty from Chris Park but Waterloo hit back with a try from Alix Croft, the captain driven over from a rolling maul.
Using the blind side to good effect from a ruck close to the Kendal line, Tom Holloway went in for the second with Dan King adding the third, finishing off some scintillating 15 man rugby before Andrew Trotter rounded off the opening period with a penalty for an 18-3 advantage at half-time.
Park slotted a second penalty for the visitors but with Kendal reduced to 14 men due a red card, Waterloo turned on the pressure and Anthony Harvey found space to go over for the bonus point. Although Alistair Thompson pulled a try back converted by Dan Rayson, Waterloo were not to be denied as James O’Brien ran a kick out of defence breaking through the Kendal rearguard from 35 metres out.
