How Hull booked their place in the Yorkshire Cup final

A spirited Driffield side found Hull’s pack in uncompromising form with their scrummaging a key factor in what became a convincing 41-0 Hull victory.
Torrential rain fell throughout the match and both sides played their part in serving up an entertaining game for the large crowd.
Hull made the perfect start when after just five minutes, they forced their way into the Driifield ‘22’ and scored their first try scored through winger Callum Lancaster.
Driffield’s well-organised defence held Hull for 22 minutes thereafter but Hull’s scrum-half Harvey Harding’s neat kick through was followed up by Lancaster for his second try after 26 minutes.
With Hull now in the ascendancy a further try was added just before half-time when the scrum took control and number eight Joe Stafford forced his way over with off-half Stephen Johnson adding the conversion.
The second half saw Hull score four more unanswered tries. After 46 minutes substitute prop Wes Langkilde powered his way over from short range.
Fifteen minutes later substitute number eight Zak Poole touched down as Hul’s scrum surged over the line.
On 70 minutes Hull’s substitute backrow forward Will Hall was credited with the touchdown from Hull’s catch and drive from a lineout.
Hull’s final score was Poole’s second try of the match from another pushover by Hull’s powerful pack.
Johnson’s two added conversions in the second half saw Hull ease home comfortably in the end by 41-0 to advance to the Yorkshire Cup Final for the third time in their 25 year history.
