Official Match Report

Hawks hammer Thunder again

Hunslet routed Gateshead once more with a 45-6 success to keep up the pressure on the Kingstone Press Championship 1's top two sides.

The Hawks thrashed the Thunder 52-6 back in May and the north-east side never looked like exacting any revenge as tries from Danny Maun, Liam Hood and Luke Stenchion gave Hunslet a 18-0 half-time advantage.

Andy Ballard crossed early in the second half and converted all eight of his team's tries to give him a personal total of 20 points. Ballard added the second-half extras to tries from Jimmy Watson, Liam Mackay and Michael Haley while James Coyle put the icing on the cake with a last-gasp drop goal.

Gateshead ensured they would at least make a contribution to the scoreboard, though, as Jordan Meads went over, and kicked the conversion, just after the hour.
