A much-changed Blackbrook side came from behind following a wasteful first half to ease out as comfortable winners and extend their unbeaten run in this seasons league campaign.
Following the opening exchanges, it was Brook who took the lead in 8th minute when slick handling across the line created an overlap for Bobby Williams to score in the corner with Aaron Hewitt adding a superb touch line conversion into the wind.
Brook were hampered by early injuries to Mike Wynn and Jack Wilson however they should really have added further tries but a mixture of losing possession in vital arears and some excellent last-ditch defensive work from the home side.
As half time approached Brook conceded a penalty 25 metres out Folly Lane Prop Josh Henry took a quick tap and went under the posts to score a try against the run of play Cameron Baker levelled the scores with his conversion.
Brook got an even bigger shock when Baker scored himself from close range 4 minutes into the 2nd period to give the Swinton side a 10-6 lead.
The lead didn’t last too long the impressive Lee Dyas broke away from inside his own half he found Ben Legge in support who raced away to score leaving Hewitt with an easy conversion to restore Brooks advantage.
The visitors attack was much more fluent in the 2nd half Coach Ant Walker changed the shape of the attack the passes began to stick and the tries inevitably followed.
On 53 minutes a surge from Cameron Tunstall took play towards the Folly try line the ball was fed out to Dan Parkes he offloaded to Bobby Williams who crossed for his 2nd try of the game with Aaron Hewitt converting.
On the hour mark it was great pressure from Cameron Tunstall on the Folly kicker which resulted in Brooks next score his poor kick landed in the arms of Jordan McManus who drew the covering defenders before sending Dan Parkes away to score with Hewitt adding another excellent conversion.
Jordan Darwin added Brooks next try he raced in from half way following his one on one ball steal with Chris Springford adding the extras this time.
Five minutes later Brook kept the ball alive on the last tackle for Jordan McManus to force his way over for his sides 5th try of the Second Half.
Folly scored a consolation try on the final whistle when Damian Blake crossed with Jamie Holdroyd converting.
Jordan Darwin was selected as The Heatrek Man of the match with Lee Dyas taking The Tisdalls Players Man of the Match.
