Hunslet Hawks 52-6 Gateshead Thunder
Hawks extend league lead
Hunslet secured a two-point lead at the top of the Kingstone Press Championship 1 table following a 52-6 victory over Gateshead.
With York losing to Oldham, the Hawks sought to cement their place at the summit with victory at the South Leeds Stadium, and they did so emphatically.
The home side ran in 10 tries, with Lee Brickwood helping himself to a hat-trick of tries, while Andy Ballard and Aston Wilson each crossed the whitewash for two touch downs. Liam Hood, Danny Grimshaw and John Oakes also scored tries, while Ballard bolstered his match tally to 20 points with six conversions.
Jason Payne scored Gateshead's consolation try, which Matty Beharrell converted.
