Northern Division North One East
Driffield 36 Alnwick 5
Alnwick were unable to start another winning streak with a tough game in Yorkshire.
Driffield made it hard work for the Northumbrians and took their first unconverted try on the ninth minute.
This was shortly followed by another and then a converted try before Alnwick managed to get some reward for their endeavours.
Full-back Bird scored the try but it was unconverted.
Driffield took another converted try before half time to make it 24-5 at the break.
The home side continued to attack throughout the second half to win.
