Dean scores 28 as Hull ease past Huddersfield YMCA

A ruthless Hull side dominated from the first whistle to score 12 tries to one and progress to the next round of the Yorkshire Cup where they will meet Bridlington RUFC in an East Riding derby.
Hull’s superiority was evident as Tom Hicks powered his way through a clutch of Huddersfield players to score under the posts in the sixth minute leaving fly- half Reece Dean the simple task of adding the conversion.
After 12 minutes Hull released pacy winger Mike Adlard to outflank the opposition to go in for an unconverted try.
Huddersfield then regrouped and held Hull at bay until the 24th minute with some resolute defence.
The game then ended as a contest when, firstly Hull’s winger Stephen Hihetah powered his way past five would-be tacklers to score an unconverted try in the left hand corner.
Then moments later a Huddersfield prop was sent off for abusive language.
Hull made good use of the resultant penalty and their field position as Hihetah went in for another try converted by Dean after 33minutes.
From the kick-off, the ball was shipped to Hihetah who scored his third try of the match which Dean converted
Hull then played five minutes of near perfect rugby and a move from deep in their own half saw back row men Oliver Dynan and Rupert Kay score under the posts for two excellent converted tries to see Hull in an unassailable 45-0 lead at half-time.
The second half saw Hull introduce all their subs and it took just four minutes for one of them, fly-half Tomasi Tanumi to jink his way over from 10 yards out for an unconverted try.
Winger Adlard showed his pace and skill 10 minutes later when he ran 60 yards collecting his own chip ahead to score a converted try.
Dean then scored 14 points in just four minutes when he ran in Hull’s tenth and eleventh tries in the 64th and 68th minutes converting both.
Hull saw Huddersfield winger Hyde get a consolation try after 74 minutes but Hull had the last word as they burst out of their own half and scrum-half Harvey Harding backed up well to ease past the last defender before touching down under the posts for Dean to convert bringing his personal points tally to 28 points and see Hull home by a massive 78-5 margin.
