With more possession and gaining in confidence Royston rallied in the second half and only conceded one more try.
In game two Royston were much more confident and were strong in defence.
They were a lot more dominant in the rucks and mauls while James Meecham and man-of-the-match Rhys Redrup were standouts for Royston.
They were ably supported by Ben Ireland's good kicking, solid hit ups and roaming defending by Maxwell Ayliffe and scrimmaging by Jake Boyce.
Royston conceded just the one try when they were caught short on the blind side when the backs were caught in the ruck and lost 1-0.
