Cinderford Prove Too Strong For Hull

What a difference a week makes. After last Saturday’s battling performance in a 19-12 loss to third placed Sale FC, this weekend’s game at Cinderford was a stark contrast. It was Hull’s first ever visit to Cinderford in the Forest Of Dean, Gloucestershire.

The game also marked Ali Heard’s magnificent 200th appearance for the club. In the cold and with incessant drizzle throughout the match, the conditions were poor, but that didn’t hinder the hosts too much. They started strongly and after tries from Haly, Forrester and Hendy and two conversions from the impressive Austin, the home side were 19-0 up after 18 minutes.

Conceding points early has been a common problem for Hull all season. Aided by a number of questionable decisions from the officials, Cinderford secured their bonus point try in the 26th minute when Haly scored again.
Nine minutes later, Austin raced through to score their fifth try and added the extras himself to lead 31-0 at the break.

Hull only managed to get into Cinderfords ‘22′ on a handful of occasions throughout the match but seven minutes into the second half, Angell scored the home side’s sixth try to add to the misery. A further unconverted try by Taylor stretched the lead to 43-0 with 11 minutes to go.

With the last play of the game, Taylor scored his second and Cinderford’s eighth try of the game. Austin added the extras to make the final score 50-0.
