Hullensians show no mercy in eight-try demolition
HULLENSIANS started the New Year with a bang with an eight-try 53-5 hammering of Skipton to move up to fifth in Yorkshire Two.
They opened the scoring after five minutes when Mario Ellison picked up and burrowed his way over, with Clayton McCloud adding the conversion.
Skipton tried to take the initiative, but Hullensians broke from defence to attack and McCloud added a 30-yard penalty.
A Lewis Brown chip to the corner for Tom McCarthy just ran dead, before Chris Harding cut through to the corner for a try following the drop-out. McCloud added the conversion.

Hullensians continued to press, but an interception allowed Skipton to clear and work the ball for Alistair MacLean to come into the line to squeeze in for a try at the corner.
Hullensians took a 24-5 lead into the break when Tony Smith made a line-out steal for the ball to be whipped across the field for Adam Atkinson to muscle his way over for a try, converted by McCloud.
A clever kick-through by Chris Harding saw Chris Smith touch down for a try after the restart. McCloud added the conversion before Smith grabbed his second try, after Jordan Knapp picked up a pass off his boot-laces and some good ball skills from McCarthy.
Skipton won a scrum in their own 22, but they were slow making the ball safe, allowing Chris O'Leary to pounce for a try.
Hullensians moved the ball well again for Harding to slice through for his second try, converted by McCloud.
Andy Smith broke from a scrum to drive forward and recycle the ball for Brown to throw out a wide pass to Chris Smith, who unselfishly turned the ball inside for McCloud to go over for try number eight.
Skipton finished the game strongly, but Hullensians weren't in a charitable mood as they kept out their hosts with determined defence.
