Harding On The Scoresheet As Hull Maintain 11 Point Lead

Hull were looking to make sure last week’s hard fought victory against Rotherham did not take any edge from their game. A further victory was important to keep themselves 11 points clear at the top of National 2 North and it took just two minutes for Hull to make their mark with an unconverted try by back row man Latu Makaafi. 

Wharefdale matched that early score when Harry Bullough went if for a try to make it 5-5 after just seven minutes.

That certainly gave Wharfedale some heart, but any expectations were short lived as Hull started to dominate in all phases and rattled up a further 28 unanswered points by halftime to effectively end the game as a contest.

Hull’s scrum-half Harvey Harding, touched down after 16 minutes and then flanker Ali Thompson added his name to the scoresheet after 22 minutes with a further try. Winger Keane Naylor went in after 20 minutes and number 8 Will Hall on 32 minutes completed the first half try fest. Off Half Simon Humberstone converted all the tries to see Hull in compete command at half time leading 33-5.

The second half saw Hull wrap up another maximum points performance with a penalty from Simon Humberstone after 51 minutes. A try on 69 minutes by Wharfedale’s Hamilton converted by Tom Davidson was something of a consolation for a lot of hard work by the home side who had not been able to halt Hull’s long running winning sequence. A late try by winger Mike Adlard converted by Reece Dean sealed a 43-12 win.
