Hutton registered their first win in four matches with an emphatic 12-try success

away at Newton-le-Willows. The visitors ran in six tries in each half with nine different players crossing the tryline.

Despite the home side only starting the game with 12 men, Hutton struggled to seize the initiative in the early exchanges with a few handling mistakes disrupting the start. Hutton began to find their feet, and took the game into opposition territory for the first time. A succession of penalties kept the pressure on the Newton line and after winning clean ball, scrum half Michael Gordon darted through a gap in the line to score under the posts for a converted try. Minutes later, and Hutton had scored again. After a scrum in midfield, Gordon broke down the blindside to feed winger Greg Baron on the overlap. Baron evaded the defence to score in the corner to give Hutton a 12-0 lead. The restart was proving to be Huttons Achilles heel as they fumbled a number of high balls that allowed Newton to regain possession. However, the home side struggled to mount any serious attacks, and were cut open by Adam Wood who scored Huttons third try of the afternoon with a long range effort after good handling. Wood added the conversion to his try to extend the advantage to 19-0. This was proving to be a good passage of play for Hutton as Christian Ash scored their fourth try of the game from Kev Stranges quickly taken tap penalty. A fifth try followed soon after as Jim Goulden made the line break to find Strange in support and the Number 8 crossed. Wood added the extras for a 31-0 advantage. As Newton found themselves with a full complement of 15-men, Hutton added their sixth try when Goulden intercepted on halfway and showed great pace to run clear to score under the posts.

The second half began in a similar fashion to the first as a number of handling errors disrupted the flow of the game. Hutton used the breeze well and forced Newton back into their half, but had to be patient as they tried to find a way through the home sides defence. Their pressure paid off when full back Craig Dootson showed good strength and footwork to avoid the tacklers and dive over in the corner. Hutton cleaned up the restart and began to assert their authority on the game once again. With the scrum and lineout proving solid, Hutton were able to win clean ball which set up the platform for further scoring opportunities. The eighth try of the game was scored following good support in the backline. Wood offloaded to find Andy Tobutt in support and the fly-half broke clear to score under the posts. Woods conversion brought up the 50-point mark. With Hutton in complete control of the game, they added another try minutes later with Wood on the end of a good handling sequence to make the scoreline 57-0. The try of the game was scored with fifteen minutes remaining, after winning ball on the left wing, Hutton passed along the line. With forwards and backs combining, Stranges final offload found Baron who finished well in the corner. The scoring was completed when Tobutt broke through the line and evaded the full back to slide in under the posts. Wood added his seventh conversion of the day to complete a 74-0 victory.

A morale-boosting win for Hutton who will go into next weeks game against St Edwards Old Boys in a confident mood.
