Ripley Rhinos finished their season with their traditional friendly against a Derbyshire Police XV on a perfect Mill Hill evening, winning the fixture 31-12.

The Rhinos side certainly had a Barbarians feel to it as a number of Ripley players who moved onto other clubs came along and turned out but all had played for Ripley Rhinos previously, many for years.

Skipper Craig Culshaw led his men up the slope in the first half. The first ten minutes were end-to-end stuff with both sides butchering chances to score.
