The trial match saw both provinces field their full training squads with over 30 players from each side taking part.

The match ended in a draw, with both sides scoring five tries, but the result is not as important as the development of the players and the experience they gain from playing at this level.

The trial is part of a series of matches between the provinces and is used to test players' skills at a high level.
