WYKE earned another confidence-boosting win ahead of Saturday's Bradford ARL Cup final against Clayton as they thrashed Stainland Stags 48-6 at home in Yorkshire Men's League Division Two.

Coach Ian Wormald rang the changes with prop Ben Kelly, loose forward Nathan Marchant and influential half-back Gary Worley all welcomed back.

The opening try was scored within five minutes and was arguably the try of the game. Swift hands eventually found Cameron Foster who beat his winger and, having gone 30 metres, he put a neat cross field grubber kick for the in-form Alec Williams to collect and score under the sticks.

After both packs pounded each other, Calvin Barker was put in a hole, beating the full back to score under the sticks again. Both tries were converted by Bradley Clarkson.

The onslaught continued when great work by the forwards, and particularly prop Luke Robinson and Marchant, in a well-executed move ended with Tevin Campbell scoring in the corner.

Barker stepped up again and beat three defenders to take the score to 22-0, Clarkson adding another conversion. After a flare-up between Clarkson and Stainland giant prop Gaz Nicholson, the latter met his match when Robinson defended his team mate, which resulted in both props correctly being shown a yellow card.

The second half started with a well-worked Stainland try but Wyke’s front row were in no mood to give them another.

Substitute hooker Sam Kittsen scored under the sticks, then put prop Ben Kelly over for his first for the black and whites.

Robinson completed a front-row hat-trick by scoring from 40 metres out before Campbell scored his brace.

The final say went to man of the match Jordan Payton when a superb cross field kick found winger Foster for a well-deserved try. Clarkson added two more conversions and Payton one.
