ON-TOUR Malton & Norton Under-14s battered Oswestry and Shrewsbury.

The former were put to the sword 77-5 as Malton’s forwards dominated possession - led by a back-row effort from Albert Pollard, Archie Johnson and Thomas Atkinson.

With good quick ball, Danny Scorfield was able to launch his runners and, despite excellent tackling, Malt notched four tries for George Austin-Thompson and a hat-trick for Iain Oakley.

Further tries followed from Lawrence Blades, Ronan Fenwick, Johnson, Joe Browne, Pollard and Matthew Jefferson. Joe Browne landed six conversions.

They then beat Shrewsbury 36-10.

Keeping the opposition pinned in their own half, the pressure told as pacy pair Browne and Austin-Thompson each crossed twice.

The second half was more even. Shrewsbury scored twice, but tries from Austin-Thompson and Blades kept the visitors clear. Oakley made three conversions.

Man of the tour was Rob Firby.

Malton & Norton U13s prepared for their tour of Scotland with a 43-7 win over Ripon.

It was not as easy as the scoreline suggests.

They trailed 7-0 and would have been further behind but for last-ditch tackling from Fabien Marras. Malton had some luck before half-time, when Josh Britton picked up a loose ball and showed a great turn of speed to split the defence to tie the scores at 7-7.

They upped their game in the second half, playing great attacking rugby, Oliver Kelsey, Peter Hudson and Ben Edwards making good runs.

They took the lead through a penalty try, after Benjie Wilson was stopped with a high tackle, and extended it when Jacob Head out-paced the defence.

Jack Thomas scored after Edwards was tackled short and Charlie Blackburn raced round the blind side to cross. Head and Marras completed the scoring. Adam Finlinson kicked four conversions.

Malton & Norton U12s dominated Hull Ionians 49-7 in a friendly.

Saimone Tobeaweni (3), Corey Palmer (2), Alastair Keen and Conor Saxby scored tries.

Malton & Norton U7s took a depleted side to Hull Ionians. Although they lost all three games there were some fantastic tries by Alex Thompson.
