Hunslet thrash Cougars to rise the table


Hunslet thrashed Keighley Cougars 34-0 at South Leeds Stadium to go into second place in League One.

It was a great start for the West Yorkshire side, as they took the lead after just two minutes as Ben Heaton got in and scored. However, the try was unconverted.

Then with 10 minutes gone,  they got another try as Nathan Chappell managed to get over and score. Once again though, it went unconverted.

Just before the half hour, the home side then grabbed another try as Gareth Potts got in on the act. Once again, it went unconverted, but they were two converted tries in front.

Then came the games turning point as the home side grabbed two tries in the final three minutes of the first half. Mike Emmitt and Duane Straughier both crossed the tryline and both tries were converted by Reece Dean to send the South Leeds club 24 points up at the break.

The second half was considerably quieter, with just two tries, one at each end of the second half.  First, Heaton grabbed his second, just a minute into the second half and then Zach Braham scored right on the full time hooter. Daniel Nicklas converted to add to ensure Hunslet ended the match on the right note.

It means Hunslet go into second in League One, having now played as many games as London Skolars. Hunslet welcome Doncaster next Friday.

As for Keighley, they remain rooted to the bottom of the League One table and still on a negative points standing. They are still without a win since sacking Craig Lingard. They travel to another promotion chasing side in Oldham next Sunday.
