League One Sunday Review: Thunder boost playoff hopes, Haven stay clear at the top

North Wales Crusaders 12-48 Newcastle Thunder

It was the Welsh side who scored first here as Earl Hurst gave them the lead. Lewis Fairhurst converted to make it a perfect start.

But then the Thunder took control and scored four tries before the break.

Two tries for Lewis Young and other efforts from Jared Blanke and Michael Lewis. Three of which were converted by Lewis to put the Thunder 22-6 up at half time.

Three more tries to start the second half put the Thunder out of sight. Young grabbed his hat trick try, and other efforts from Keal Carlile and Joseph Brown put the visitors in complete control.

But the Crusaders didn’t lie down and grabbed another try through Ryan Smith with two minutes to go. Fairhurst converted to bring he home side into double figures.

The last word would go to the visitors though as Kieran Gill grabbed two tries on full time. Lewis scored one more conversion to assert a dominant performance for the playoff hopefuls.

Whitehaven 32-18 Coventry Bears

It was a fast start for the league leaders as Andrew Bulman scored within a minute and then added another try after 17 minutes to give them an 8-0 lead.

But the Bears, who have recently had stadium trouble, then rallied back and stormed into a shock lead at half time. Tries from Nick Newman and Sam Davis as well as two conversions and a penalty from Newman put the Bears in 14-8 up at the break.

However, Haven sprung into life in the second half as they ran in five unanswered tries to ensure they came through their first half scare unscathed.

Two tries for Sam Forrester and Jake Moore and another for Jason Mossop, as well as two conversions by Connor Holiday put Haven in control of the game.

The last word would go to the Bears though as Elliott Norman managed to score. It went unconverted, but at least the visitors had something to show for their second half efforts.
