A late Woods penalty saw the halftime score just 15-10 to Hull.
The second  period saw Hull use the slope well and after just four minutes into the half Joe Stafford, Hull’s number eight, stormed over for a try converted by Tamasi Tanumi.Sandals Wood pegged Hull back with a penalty but after fifty six minutes Hull’s Lee Birch scored the try of the game beating four defenders on a fifty yard run to the line .
Both sides scored a penalty goal before Hull’s man of the match Joe Stafford crashed over for another try to put the game beyond Sandal.
Even two late tries by the home side could not prevent Hull from winning again and go up to fifth place in the league.
