IMPROVING Waterloo move into 9th place in National Three North following a 26-11 win at home to Bradford and Bingley.
Forced to make six changes from their regular starting line-up and giving Jacob Allen his first start of the season, the home side went behind to a try early in the opening half.
A penalty from Liam Reeve reduced the deficit but with Waterloo turning the visitors over in a scrum ten metres out Tom Holloway sprinted over to give his side the lead.
A penalty by the Bees levelled matters before a break by Freemen Payne put the supporting Allen over in the corner to restore the home side's advantage.
Penalties were exchanged, Reeve for Waterloo with Reeve knocking over a third for 19-11.
Waterloo were now well in control and from great interplay between backs and forwards off a break by Jack Weir, Liam McGovern went in for the third converted by Reeve to seal the win. This Saturday Waterloo are away to third placed Sandal.
