CLECKHEATON turned in their best performance of the season, with a nine-try demolition of West Hartlepool seeing them to a 59-15 home win in North One East.

After Dale Breakwell found touch from an early Cleck penalty, James Wilson was stopped short. But Ollie Depledge was on hand to wriggle over, before Breakwell added the tricky extras.

Cleckheaton added a second try almost immediately. The ball was moved left and a superb delayed pass put flanker Joey Carley in for a converted score.

Wests kicked a simple penalty to make it 14-3, but from a five-metre scrum, Breakwell took a reverse pass from Matt Piper to score under the posts, before converting his own effort.

On 29 minutes, Jack Marshall got the ball deep inside his own 22 and combined with Depledge and Mikey Hayward to take the return pass on halfway and race away for a fine converted try.

Breakwell then got his second and although his conversion sailed wide, it was 33-3 at half-time.

Wests failed to secure the kick off, allowing Hayward to put Marshall in for his second try. Hayward was then on hand to pick up the ball after a huge tackle by Brad Marsden to cross for an unconverted score.

Hayward sliced through the defence again soon after, as Breakwell converted to make it 52-3.

West Hartlepool centre Peter Youll went over to make it 52-8 before Ben Thrower touched down for another converted Cleck score.

Wests' Stu Waites then crossed at the last, before converting his own try to complete the scoring.

Cleck will need to be on top form again next week, as they are on the road for a tough encounter at York.
