Queens scored a well deserved bonus point with their victory over Navan in the AIL to keep their promotion hopes alive with a well deserved win.
Queens scored six tries – three were scored in the first, in the opening 17 minutes with scores from Jonny Shiels, Ian Porter and Michael Pyper. Porter converted two to give Queens a 19.0 lead at half time.
Navan had put Queens under severe pressure in the last quarter of the first half and the opening quarter of the second half, but the defence held firm in a physical game with conditions made difficult with a greasy ball.
Queens then added three more tries, two from that reliable stalwart Michael Ferguson and Shiels got his second with Porter adding two conversions.
Navan scored a consolation converted try to give Queens a deserved 38.7 victory.
