Wetherby RUFC pulled off another big-margined victory over bottom club Hornsea to remain unbeaten at the top of Yorkshire Four.

The Reds have now scored 567 points this season after a 12-try assault on Hornsea saw them return 76-0 winners.

Wetherby went straight on the attack and at the first scrum they shunted the hosts back 30 yards to set up the first pushover try.

The second try on 10 minutes was a beauty. Tom Hicks picked up a loose ball and broke through before handing to Rob Adair. His chip was fielded by Myles Oates, who when tackled, found hooker Steve Hoather in support to run in from 20 yards.

Five minutes later a lovely move by the backs enabled David Adair to squeeze in at the corner. They repeated the move soon afterwards and Adair got his second try. Connor Sheriden converted and then two minutes later scored a converted try himself.

The Reds pack again caused havoc with the Hollismen scrum and Connor Sheriden, travelling at speed rounded the home defence to score again and added the goal.

At half time Wetherby were 38 points up but they didn’t let up. From their own line, Connor Sheriden off on a 50 yard run and found Tom Hicks to finish off the move. The goal was added.

The procession continued when Wetherby took a Hornsea line out and their rolling maul enabled Alex Hills to score his first try for the club.

On 54 minutes George Gilbert scored another push over try. Then the improving Will Jefferson got on the end of a passing movement to force his way over which Alex Dus converted. Wetherby finished the game with two further tries by Rob Adair and the evergreen Nick Oates.

The Reds are without a game this week before a home clash with neighbours Knaresborough on November 29.
