Diss withstood a determined fightback from Holt to win the annual clash for the Harrison Cup 38-28 at Mackenders. Diss romped into a 24-0 lead before Holt’s Ollie Wastnage got a great try on the stroke of half-time. He got another early in the second with a fine solo effort, using his pace to outstrip the Diss defence. Ashley Woods then took a quick tap penalty to crash over under a pile of bodies before Rob Gray bulldozed his way through to give Holt a four point lead. Diss then put a stranglehold on the game to get a deserved win. Tom Harrison led out Holt’s team while his father Chris presented Diss with the trophy.
