IF last weekend was Wibsey's final game of rugby union for a while, they certainly went out with a bang, scoring 12 tries against relegation-threatened Rotherham Phoenix in an 82-7 rout.

Ryan Smith set the ball rolling with a try in the fourth minute of the Yorkshire Division Three encounter, with Danny Belcher landing the first of 11 successive conversions.

Prop Alex Cerson was the next to cross in the 10th minute up the Northfield Road slope, and he was followed to the whitewash by No 8 Michael Kite four minutes later and scrum half Kyle Carter three minutes after that.

The visitors then employed keep ball for much of the next 20 minutes, but had their defences breached again by Smith and Carter in the 37th and 39th minutes respectively.

Leading 42-0 at half-time, the hosts showed little mercy in the second half, in what Rotherham Phoenix called an 80-minute performance, and further tries came for Carter - his hat-trick - in the 47th minute and forward Rob Greenwood seven minutes later.

A bout of fisticuffs then led to Harry Hall going into the blood bin, meaning that Wibsey had all five of their props on the pitch at the same time.

Kite got his second try in the 59th minute, Greenwood soon matching him, but Smith outdid them both by getting his hat-trick try.

A Rotherham Phoenix converted try in the 75th minute meant there was to be no clean sheet for the hosts, and Belcher then blotted his copybook by missing his only conversion, after man-of-the-match Hall scored in the 77th minute.

Hall was pushed for the honours by Carter, Smith, Greenwood and Cerson in a sixth successive victory, which lifted Wibsey up to sixth in the table.
