It took Brook half an hour to break down The Tigers resistance on a small pitch which stifled Brooks expansive style of play but once they did the visitors had too much pace and power for their hosts.
Following an even start to the game it was The Tigers who opened the scoring mid-way through the half when their best player on the day, Mike Benson scored from close range with Paddy Naughton adding the extras.
Tigers almost added to their lead minutes later however great cover tackling led by Mike Wynn forced wingman Mike Rendle into touch on the corner flag.
Brooks forwards led by Jack Wilson, who was brilliant on attack and defence throughout along with Jack Cottington, Cammy Tunstall-Muil and Ant Walker began to dominate the game.
Brook turned the game in their favour with three tries in the final 10 minutes of the first half. The Tigers were conceding too many penalties as they tired and following an indiscretion Lewis Gartland produced a neat offload for Jordan Darwin to score an unconverted try in the corner.
Five minutes later Brook went in front for the first time, it was soft hands from Ant Walker that found Jack Wilson who crossed beneath the posts with Jordan Darwin adding the extras.
From the restart Brook collected possession and spread the ball left where
Jordan McManus sent Bobby Williams away, Brook’s speedy wingman showed a clean pair of heels to The Tigers defence as he sped to the line to score with Darwin again adding the extra points.
Brook ran in four tries in a shortened second period. Player Coach Ant Walker broke clear deep inside his own half and he raced away down the slope to score beneath the posts with Darwin converting.
Jordan Darwin crossed for his second try soon after good work from Lewis Gartland sent McManus through, he chipped inside where Darwin collected to cross for his second try.
Jordan Darwin completed his second consecutive Hat-Trick when he collected a chip through on his own 20 metre line and jinked his way through a couple of defenders to find clear space and was unstoppable on his way to the try line.
Ian Honey completed the scoring with a try under the posts following good work from workaholic Recce Jackson. Darwin added his 6th conversion of the game.
Jack Wilson was selected as The Heatrek Man of the Match. The votes for The Tisdalls Players Man of the Match were shared out between Jack Wilso,n Ant Walker, Jordan Darwin and Ian Honey.
Brook bring the regular Season to an end next with as they host local rivals Haresfinch ahead of the play offs.
