Celtic feel Premier champions' class

DEWSBURY CELTIC fell at the first hurdle as West Hull ran in nine tries in a 46-10 win on their way to the second round of the Conference Challenge Trophy.

The tie proved a mis-match as the high-flying Premier Division outfit crushed their division one opponents in a one-sided tie.

The Premier champions scored nine tries on their way to victory at Crow Nest Park and Mark Hewitt’s men rushed to an 18-0 lead after scoring four tries in the first quarter of the game.

Scott Partis started the scoring with only two minutes gone before centre Dan Parker got the first of a brace.

Sam Cator, who was sent off later in the game for exchanging punches with Celtic’s Connor Mease, then got in on the scoring action on 11 minutes before Josh Hart added the extras to Callum Windley’s effort.

Before the break, the home side did manage to find a response when Tom Norris touched down in the 39th minute.

The game was put to bed in the second period as the Wests scored five back-to-back tries.

Parker completed his double three minutes in before Chris Whinn and Louis Crowther claimed four pointers.

Lee Roberts was next over for the Green and Golds before Carl Pickering got the ninth and Hart slotted over his fifth place kick of the afternoon.

Pat Foulstone got a consolation for the hosts in the last minute but was unable to add a second conversion of the afternoon.
