A YOUTHFUL Heworth ARLC proved far too good for National Conference League division three basement side Peterlee Pumas as they won 50-6 at Elmpark Way.

The Villagers, superbly orchestrated by stand-off and assistant coach Danny Allan, led 26-6 at the break and they racked up ten tries in an emphatic victory.

The hosts opened their account after three minutes after some slick handling put centre Adam Withington over in the corner.

Nine minutes later, the Pumas scored their only try of the game through hooker Junior Sullivan and full-back Leigh Wheatley added the extras.

Heworth second rower Steve Scott forced his way over close to the posts for Allan to add the conversion.

On 19 minutes Scott registered his second touchdown from a defence-splitting Allan pass, who also tagged on the extras.

The Villagers posted two further tries in the final five minutes of the half through winger Lewis Hartley, after another Allan pass, and the stand-off crossed after a 30- metre break by impressive scrum-half Josh Poulter. Allan's third conversion made it 26-6 at the break.

Centre Chris Varley touched down for an unconverted score after only two minutes of the second period and five minutes later Allan jinked his way over to make it 34-6.

Allan then made way for young debutant stand-off Billy Sturdy, who had an immediate impact, putting loose forward Jack Smith through a gap to score and Hartley kicked the conversion.

On 56 minutes, Poulter burrowed his way over from acting half next to the posts and Hartley added the extras.

Eleven minutes from time, Withington completed the scoring with his second touchdown following a great off-load by Scott.

Poulter took the man of the match award, with Hartley and second rower Mark Hayes also catching the eye.
