A Chris Beaumont try, converted by Mark Young, gave them a 7-0 half-time lead.

In the second half, Mark Young, Steve McHugh, Robert Craine and Greg Danes all crossed for Nomads with Young converting to make up the total.

Ramsey’s try came courtesy of Daniel Murray with the conversion from Chris Clague.
