"It was the best performance of the season in the first half," said Goaman.

"Our second half was not the best to be honest.

"Alex Priest had an outstanding game at seven. He was a live wire all afternoon with massive tackles on the opposition.

"There is lots to work on in training, but we were delighted with the bonus-point win."
