Newcastle 10-43 Heaton Moor Junior Colts

Heaton Moor Junior Colts continued their recent good form with victory over Newcastle-under-Lyme in the Conference League.

Right from kick off Moor showed their intent with some incisive breaks, Asa Bottomley crossing to score the first of his four tries after only five minutes.

The same player then turned provider with a great break after brilliant work by Joe Kilbride to set Angus Boothroyd through for an impressive score.

Bottomley then doubled his tally, giving Moor a healthy 15-point lead after just a quarter of an hour.

The remainder of the half was more about keeping their opponents at bay with some fantastic work by Evan Coffey and man-of-the-match Babak Soufain as the forwards completely dominated their opponents.

Although Newcastle did pull a try back on the stroke of half-time after some decent rugby of their own to give them a bit of hope for the second half.

It turned out to be a short-lived hope with Heaton Moor totally dominating the second half, playing probably their best rugby of the season.

Bottomley scored two more tries but he also played role of provider, his tireless work assisting Sam Sheppard to grab two more, all of which were converted by Nick Tenney.

Also, an honourable mention to outside centre Joe Kilbride, some of his passing and skills an absolute delight to behold.

Newcastle grabbed a consolation try but the day was all about a magnificent display by Heaton Moor, a comprehensive victory which will give them some impetus for the visit of Blackburn next weekend in what will be a dress rehearsal for the cup final later in the season
