Thirty points without reply in the second half earned St John Fisher the trophy in this all-Yorkshire affair, which up until that point this had been a closely-fought contest.

The Dewsbury outfit opened the scoring when Castleford coughed up possession near their own line and Caitlin Beevers went over for a try, which she also converted and was to be the start of her incredible 36-point haul.

Castleford replied with a try from Mia Churm but St John Fisher extended their lead when they ran the ball on the sixth tackle and Lameeyaa Noor went over in the corner.

The conversion by Beevers made it 12-4 and she was on target minutes later following her own brilliant long range try.

Just before half time Mia Stephenson kept Castleford in touch with a try which Lauren Harvey converted to make it 18-10 at the break.

A short kick off to start the second half enabled them to regain possession and they took full advantage with Courtney Pointon touching down, Harvey’s conversion bringing them to within two points.

But that was as good as it got for them as St John Fisher took control of the game.

Beevers ran in a further three tries with Isabel Bibby collecting two and Beevers converting all five to earn the Player of the Match award.
