Official Match Report

Thunder crush Scorpions

Jason Payne and Omari Caro both scored a brace of tries to help Gateshead Thunder hand a sixth straight defeat to South Wales Scorpions after a 50-16 Kingstone Press Championship 1 victory at Maesteg.

Payne opened the scoring with his first try in the 16th minute and moments later Matty Beharrell crossed with Jamie Rooney converting both for a 12-0 advantage.

Payne went over again before the hosts got on the board through a Greg Wilde try, bettered by Paul Emanuelli. A pair of tries from Chris Vitalini either side of the interval and another Emanuelli goal got them right back into the game at 16-16.

But Gateshead stepped up a gear to run away with the game from that point on as tries from Caro (two), Chris Heil, Rooney, Aaron Ollett, Sam Bowering and Kial Carlisle - along with three Beharrell goals - saw them home.
