Early bath as Wibsey Warriors maul Ackworth Jaguars
Wibsey Warriors 42, Ackworth Jaguars 0
Wibsey Warriors coasted into the fourth round of the Pennine President's Cup following a tranquil victory over Ackworth Jaguars at Northfield Road.
The tie lasted just an hour as referee Richard Dyson took pity on the visitors.
The Jaguars gave no sign of the mayhem about to unfold when they camped in the hosts' red zone from the kick-off, and only stout scrabbling defence kept them at bay before Wibsey clicked into gear.
A rapid run down the middle from stand-off Ryan Smith paved the way, and he handed on to centre Nick Fontaine for the opener.
Full back Mike Derrick then made the extra man from a scrum to slice through the visitors' flimsy rearguard before Fontaine claimed his brace by being in the right place at the right time following a break by loose forward Henry Hall.
Former centre Nick Walker, now operating in the second row, picked up a dropped pass near his own line when the Jaguars made a rare incursion into home territory and raced downfield at a leisurely pace, only to see Smith drop the ball with the posts in clear sight.
The half-back, however, made amends for his infrequent lapse when he collected from the kick-off to scoot 80 metres to the uprights, leaving scrum alf Simon Sewell - who never missed a conversion all afternoon - to add his fourth extra to put the Warriors into the sheds 24-0 up.
Ackworth were clearly struggling with no substitutes and a number of players carrying injuries.
It was fitting that Walker should crown a towering display with a touchdown on the restart, and Hall will never score an easier try than when he waltzed over from a set scrum without a hand being laid on him.
The referee gave both sides the nod that the game was being brought to an early conclusion and Ackworth responded with a brief attack that forced Wibsey prop Mike Kite to kick the ball dead under pressure.
The last action of the tie came just before the final whistle when prop forward Chris Vogel barged his way to the chalk,endorsing an early bath for all concerned.
