SEDGLEY Tigers put in a stirring second-half display to see off promotion-chasing Chester in some style at Park Lane on Saturday.

After the two sides went in level at 7-7 at half time, the hosts blitzed National Two North’s second-placed outfit in the second period with five unanswered converted tries to win 45-7 and move up to fourth.

The Tigers have just two games to play, starting with a final away trip of the campaign at Fylde on Saturday, and assistant coach John Livesey admits they may have left their good run too late to snatch a play-off spot.

Nevertheless, he has been mightily impressed with recent results that has seen them rack up six successive victories.

And he wants the season to end on a positive note with two more wins.

Livesey said: “When you look back there are five games where you think if we had been in the same vein of form as we are now, we would have won and could have been right in the mix.

“But we will keep going to the end to hopefully finish on a high.”

Richard Lepori gave Sedgley the lead last weekend with a try converted by star man Steve Collins – one of six conversions and a successful penalty for the kicker.

They were pegged back but then the second half saw another for Lepori, two for Andy Riley and one apiece for Matt Riley and Oli Glasse in a stunning display.

Livesey added: “The first half was nip and tuck against a good team but the second half was a fantastic all-round performance from our lads.

“To score 38 points without reply is amazing.

“Steve Collins was the star man with some great kicking, but everyone contributed.”
