Skipper Craig Drew was well supported by flanker Gavin Crothers and lineout jumper Gareth Stacey in the Hartridge pack, but St Julians were well led by flanker Nathan Kelly, whose pack included Wales Deaf lock Richie Watkins and former Newport stalwart Sean Duggan. Hartridge were better behind the scrum with Paul and Mike Wrench always alert, while scrum-half Ryan Gerrish was a battler for the losers.
Drew gave Hartridge the lead with a try converted by wing Leon Trezise, but Spencer replied with a penalty, before lock Gareth Berry stormed over, though another Spencer goal pegged it to 12-6 at the interval.
Centre Mike Wrench ended good combined Hartridge play with a try that Trezise converted, but Spencer landed two more splendid goals for 19-12, only for Wrench to score another good try that Trezise again converted.
