Comprehensive victory for Hornets Colts

Hornets Colts started the league season with a comprehensive victory over St Marys.

HORNETS Colts welcomed St Marys to The Nest for their first league match of the season and put down a marker for the rest of the year, with an outstanding performance.

From the first kick of the match, perfectly placed by Humphris, Bate caught the ball and quick hands by the backs saw Turner scamper over with only 45 seconds on the clock.

From the restart, Aplin retrieved the ball and the forwards marched up the field with a series of quick rucks, directed by Solomon, before Bate entered the line at pace to crash over, converted by Humphris.

Superb interplay with the forwards and quick hands by the backs saw Solomon finish in style, converted by Humphris. Richardson, Locker and Dover were dominant in attack and when St Marys had the ball, Hornets knocked them back.

Three more tries were scored in the first-half, with Coleman, Dolcezza and Keano all touching down.
