Perfect ten try show as Malton & Norton RUFC thrash Durham
9:51am Monday 11th February 2013 in Sport
Back to full strength, Malt switched Ian Cooke from full-back to partner Ryan Lonsdale in the centres and Tom Newitt from wing to full-back to accommodate new signing Kenton Leiataua on the wing. The changes paid off in a ruthless display.
Lonsdale cruised over for the first of his four tries in the opening minute and, on 13 minutes, winger Henry Newitt crossed in the corner for a 10-0 lead. Scrum-half Tom Boyle sent Henry Newitt over again on 23 minutes and Cooke converted.
Henry Barnes stole a loose ball at a Durham scrum and put fellow flanker Sam Triffitt over and Cooke made it 24-0.
Lonsdale broke and handed on to Tom Newitt, who breezed over, only for Durham to claim a try for a 29-7 half-time score.
Lonsdale got his second try after the break and after another Durham score, Cooke got a try and conversion.
Cooke also converted a Boyle try on the hour, before Durham scored a third touch down.
Debutant fly-half James Bulmer, on as a substitute, released Lonsdale for his hat-trick try and the centre’s fourth followed a brilliant break by Cooke, who converted both.
Pocklington edged a win at Darlington in North One East, coming from 15-3 down to win 16-15 with an injury time penalty.
Scrum-half Jack Fletcher opened the scoring for Pock with a penalty, but a Darlington try made it 5-3 at the break.
Pock conceded possession and Darlington countered for an 80-yard converted try. Pock then had a man sin-binned and leaked a penalty to trail 15-3.
Pock responded with two tries from drives up the middle, first for wing Billy Hardy to dive in on the right, and then full-back Pete Massie to plunge over on the left.
Fletcher missed both conversions and two penalties before kicking the winning goal late on.
