YORK City Knights Ladies thrashed Warrington Wolves 62-0 on their return to action in the Beftred Women's Super League.

York had been out of action since their 34-6 defeat to St Helens in the Beftred Women's Challenge Cup final at the start of June.

League matches against Wakefield Trinity, St Helens and Bradford Bulls were all either postponed or forfeited, leaving the Knights with a long wait to get back on the field.

Despite the lengthy lay off though, Lindsay Anfield's side showed no sides of rustiness in a clinical display at the Asics Stadium.

York raced into an early lead, with Sinead Peach and Tamzin Renouf both crossing inside the first ten minutes.

Renouf sealed her double before half-time and immediately after the restart Katie Langan extended the Knights' advantage.

Player-of-the-match Rhiannon Marshall and Alisha Clayton get themselves on the scoresheet afterwards before Peach bagged her second try.

Before the finish, Emma Hardy - who scored nine goals - Kelsey Gentles and Grace Field all got over the whitewash for York, who are now fourth in the table.
