McColl Stars As Hull Hand Tynedale A Heavy Defeat

Hull completely dominated a one sided game scoring 10 tries to one against a Tynedale side who never stopped trying to play attacking rugby, but who could not match Hull’s forward power or clinical finishing.

Playing with the wind, Tynedale were first to score in the sixth minute with a penalty from Rodgers. Hull responded immediately and Mike Adlard was held up on the line after a sweeping Hull move. Moments later after a scrum deep in Tynedale’s ’22’ Hull’s number eight Will Hall scored Hull’s first try converted by off-half Simon Humberstone after 13 minutes.

Five minutes later, a good catch and drive by Hull saw captain Cameron Curry score a second try, this time unconverted. Adlard was next to score after a great handling move from backs and forwards after 23 minutes. The best try of the half came when Liam Regardsoe, Hull’s second row forward, stripped the ball in the tackle in his own ’22’ and Hull passed and backed up for 85 yards to see centre Isefo Turaga score a spectacular try after 28 minutes.

A late first half try for AdamTodhunter converted by Rodgers gave the scoreline an air of respectability at 22-10 at halftime.

Having had the wind in their favour, Tynedale found life much harder in the second period. Within 10 minutes of the restart, Hull had scored three more tries from full back Reece Dean, winger Keane Naylor and prop Ben Bootham with Humberstone converting two of them.

An interception try by Steve McColl  converted by Humberstone saw Hull past the 40-point mark. After 67 minutes, a thunderous break by back row man Latu Makaafi saw winger Adlard in again for a try converted by full back Dean.

With Hull now scoring at will winger Naylor romped over for another Hull try as the home side recorded their biggest victory of the season 60-10 and stay top of the league.
