Celtic put in relegation-worthy performance away at St Judes

DEWSBURY CELTIC were annihilated 62-0 by eighth-placed Wigan St Judes in National Conference League Division Two.

Considering just one place separated the two sides, this was a convincing win for Judes - led by man-of-the-match Barry Rothwell.

The writing was on the wall for Celtic as Judes ran in five tries in the opening 20 minutes.

Connor Parkinson crossed for the first with just two minutes gone and added another on 16 minutes with one from Nathan Jones inbetween.

Gareth Thomas and Darrion Ball added the others and with Jones’s second and four Scott Robinson goals it was game over at the break at 32-0.

Judes added five tries in the second half from Rob Collier, Barry Gregson, Rothwell, Joey Brady and Leon Harber.

The thumping loss leaves Celtic in ninth just one point above Salford City Roosters.

The green and whites will hope to extend that margin with a win over league-leaders Hunslet Club Parkside (Saturday Aug 20, 2.30pm).
