Phoenix had been pushing for promotion earlier in the season but with a couple of losses at the end of the season any hopes of silverware rested on the cup competitions.

The men struggled to find their usual consistency of passing and some tired looking blocking contrived to give the Spartans a straightforward win on the day.

Training starts again in September after a well earned summer rest.
