Your News Colne & Nelson 0 - Hutton 66

Hutton took to the muddy fields of Colne and Nelson looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season and consolidate top spot in the league table. Captain Kev Strange and Craig Cameron returned to the starting line-up.

Playing uphill in the first half, Hutton began at a lively pace looking to run the ball at every occasion. It didnt take long for the visitors to register their first try of the afternoon, when scrum half Phil Caslake broke from the scrum and raced clear to touch down under the posts, Andy Tobutts conversion making it 7-0. The forwards were on top of things in the scrum and set the platform for some good handling moves from the backs. The second try came following some quick handling down the blindside, James Swarbrick scoring in the corner, and with the conversion missing, Hutton led 12-0. Hutton were dominating territory and didnt let the home side out of their own half, and crossed the line for their next try when Craig Cameron made a midfield break and evaded the tackles to score, the conversion was off target, 17-0. The boggy underfoot conditions were testing, but despite this, Hutton kept the ball alive well and were rewarded when Craig Cameron went over in the corner for his second try, Tobutts conversion made it 24-0. Hutton ended the half with their fifth try, Phil Caslake breaking through the home defence again to get his second try, Tobutt added the extras to make it 31-0 at half time.

Leaving the heavy conditions behind, Hutton attacked down the hill in the second half and despite an early period of pressure from the home side, Hutton held firm. The 6th try of the afternoon came when Caslake raced clear to complete his hat-trick and with Tobutts conversion, Hutton led 38-0. Not to be outdone, Cameron then completed his hat-trick with another lightning fast break; touching down under the posts and the conversion made it 45-0. Caslake then went one better, scoring his fourth try of the game with an excellent solo effort following a dummy and break. The ninth try of the afternoon was a good team effort with some good offloads and support play, allowing Andy Maher to score under the posts, conversion added 59-0. Slick handling down the wing presented Hutton with their final try of the afternoon and Cameron crossed for his fourth try, Tobutt added the conversion, 66-0. The final quarter of the half proved to be a scrappy affair with the home side losing their discipline at times, but Huttons defence resisted what Colne & Nelson threw at them.

This was a comfortable victory and the points haul strengthens Huttons grip on top spot and points difference. Next Saturday attention turns to cup action when Liverpool Collegiate visit HQ for the EDF Energy Vase 4th round tie.
