WEST HULL 42 THORNHILL TROJANS 0
AT WEST HULL COMMUNITY PARK
Thornhill Trojans produced another battling performance but it simply wasn’t enough against title chasing West Hull. With several first team regulars missing due to other commitments, the ‘A’ team players brought in to enable this fixture to be fulfilled did very well but the gulf between the top of the NCL Premier and the bottom was clear to see. The West Hull team had pace in abundance which they used to good effect and when they broke, their support play was exceptional.
It was great support play which helped West Hull build up a 20-0 interval lead. It was a misplaced kick on the last from Thornhill which set up West Hull’s first try of the game. The kick went straight to a West Hull player and suddenly Thornhill were on the back foot. West Hull broke up field but were eventually held short of the try line. A quick play the ball and swift handling resulted in Jamie Leigh going over for an unconverted West Hull try.
Play continued and it was from a scrum down that West Hull scored their next try. Good handling from West Hull had Thornhill back pedalling and Jack Lazenby finished the attack with a try. Ryan Wilson converted.
The third West Hull try came as a result of good handling as the ball was worked along the attacking line. The Thornhill defence became over stretched and Ryan Langton went over for an unconverted try out wide. The goal attempt bounced off the posts.
Thornhill best spell in the first half came on the half hour mark. Good play by Jake Wilson and Zach Johnson helped to take Thornhill forward. The good work looked to have resulted in a try for Thornhill but Joe Buggle couldn’t hold the ball with the line at his mercy.
But just before half time West Hull scored their 4th try through Sam Cator. From close range the ball was passed out to Cator who beat a Thornhill defender to go over for a try out wide. Scott Spaven converted to make it 20-0 at the interval.
Straight after the interval Jack Lazenby broke up field to score a 60 meter long range try. The Thornhill defence had no answer for Lazenby’s pace. Scott Spaven converted.
After this try tempers boiler over with Thornhill’s Declan Tomlinson having a difference of opinion with a couple of West Hull players. Players rushed in to held Tomlinson settle his differences. Once order had been restored the referee sent West Hull’s Josh Wood and Oscar Ellerington to the sin bin along with Declan Tomlinson and Jake Wilson.
Play continued and Jack Lazenby once again used his pace to devastating effect to tear Thornhill apart. A pass on the 10 meter line picked out Lazenby and he raced the remaining distance evading the attention of several Thornhill defenders. The try was unconverted but it did enable Lazenby to complete his hat-trick.
West Hull continued to test Thornhill and with their next attack they kept play alive basket ball style. The ball was switched inside and Matty Plummer went over for a try which Wilson converted.
Thornhill’s best spell of the second half came when man of the match Casey Johnson took play forward. Declan Tomlinson lofted a pass out to winger Liam Ward who came within a whisker of scoring.
The scoring was completed when West Hull registered their 8th try of the game. Scott Spaven cut inside and beat the Thornhill defence to score a try between the posts. Wilson converted as Thornhill ended their second successive game without scoring.
