Captain and flanker Sebastian Morales punched in a score moments later, capitalizing on the handwork put in by 8-man Griffin Gonzalez who had a long break on an pickup play off the base of the scrum. Morales would finish the day with three tries in total. Hooker Matt Hickey crossed the try line in support moments later. Rhatagan broke through the game line to finish off the first of his two tries. Captain and flyhallf Hunter Musson added another try on a breakaway.
