Pennine Way, Hemel

The English Lions cruised to a comfortable victory over the Irish Wolfhounds at Hemel Hempstead on Friday night.

Two tries each for Scott Glassell and Dean Hunt, plus eight goals from the boot of Gary McClelland did most of the damage, whilst Nathan Kitson, Liam Gannon, Nathan Batty, Sean Garrod and Chris Siddon also touched down.

The hosts powered to a 30-0 lead by half-time and despite the visitors battling bravely throughout they closed the game out with a further 22 unanswered points in the second half.

The result sets the Lions up nicely for their clash with the Scotland Bravehearts on Sunday September 15 at Wath Brow Hornets.
