Unfortunately it’s been a difficult week for most of our teams but there have still been some positive results. Here is this week’s roundup.
After two important home wins Hull City travelled to the Etihad Stadium looking for their first away win under Marco Silva. They ran into an impressive Manchester City side and were well beaten 3-1 despite getting a late consolation goal.
North Ferriby United are now staring relegation full in the face after a disappointing home performance against Boreham Wood. The visitors capitalised on some sloppy defending to score 4 easy goals. The 2-4 defeat leaves Ferriby on the brink of being relegated over the Easter weekend.
In contrast Hall Road Rangers completed their regular home league games for the season in some style as they battered Nostell Miners Welfare 8-0. If they win their final two games of the season they will be promoted as champions! Good luck to the Hall Road lads in their final two games.
Hull FC were given an embarrassing thumping by Salford Red Devils on Friday night. A first half blitz by the Devils set the tone for a 18-54 defeat as the visitors ran in 10 tries. Hull’s defence was poor all game and that must be addressed before the visit of Leeds on Good Friday. Lee Radford will be hoping to have some of his key players back for that game and he certainly needs them.
Hull KR’s imperious Championship form continued as they came from behind to easily beat Swinton Lions 52-18. Zach Dockar-Clay made an impressive try scoring debut for the Robins who made it 9 wins from 9 to comfortably top the Championship.
There were mixed results for our Amateur sides this weekend. Skirlaugh were 27-4 winners against Pilkington Recs while Myton Warriors were impressive in beating Wigan St Pats.
West Hull and Hull Dockers didn’t have such good weekends. West Hull lost narrowly 18-16 at Kells while Dockers were hammered 60-0 at Underbank.
Hull Ionians edged a tight game 30-29 away at Rosslyn Park while Hullensians were beaten 39-32 at Scarborough. The most impressive result of the weekend came from Hull RUFC who racked up 50 points for the second consecutive game. They were 59-15 winners over Doncaster Phoenix after also registering a half century of points in their Yorkshire Cup Quarter Final a few days earlier.
