Kesteven bounced back to winning ways with a monster home victory over Retford.
Notts Pennant League
Kesteven 2nd 105
East Retford 2nd 0
Following the defeat to HMP Ranby two weeks ago and the no show of Belper last week, the Kesteven second team were eager to prove that the Ranby result was a mere blip in the season, and stand-in captain Doug Hayward certainly rallied his side.
Posession was never going to be an issue with the selected pack and Hanson, Coghill and the marauding back row of Jinks, Richard Dolan and Midgeley revelled in the open spaces available.
It was Midgeley who opened the scoring following a bullocking run from Jinks for a score under the posts. Hanson was next to score from close range following good work from Midgeley, supported by Morgan.
Rupert Jordan streaked through from full back to score the first of his five tries. The tries flowed with Tom Price, Ollie Hughes, Rob Windsor and Brad Jepson adding to the tally. With several excellent conversions from Price, the half time score was an immense 64-0.
Jordan Smith and Ian MacAllister joined the Retford ranks for the second period as the game took its toll on the visitors.
Replacement Jordan Hughes scored with almost his first touch after another line break from Jinks, ably supported by Jordan and Jepson.
It would have been a travesty had the impressie Jinks not made the scoresheet and following a midfield break, he outsprinted the defence cross the whitewash. Further scores were to follow from Charles and Jepson, with Price completing a well deserved hat trick for a fine all round display.
Kesteven: T. Smith, Hayward, King, Hanson, Coghill, Jinks, R. Dolan, Midgeley, Morgan, T. Price, Windsor, Burton, Jepson, O. Hughes, R. Jordan. Reps: Hughes, Charles, Cunningham, J. Smith, MacAllister.
