HULL DOCKERS CRUISE TO PROMOTION VICTORY!
Hull Dockers will be locking horns with local rivals Skirlaugh and Myton Warriors in Division 1 of the National Conference next season after cruising to a 44-16 victory over Crosfield at The Willows. In front of a big crowd, Dockers never looked back after being gifted a try in the opening minute and a scintillating display of attacking rugby saw them go into the break with an unassailable 36-10 lead.
The visitors, who had come back from a big deficit to win in extra-time at Wigan St Judes the previous week, tightened up in the second period but never threatened a repeat and the Green and Whites proved far too powerful in both defence and attack.
The game petered out in the final quarter with both sides guilty of mistakes and tempers became frayed with veteran forward Jon Eccles in the thick of the exchanges but it was Dockers celebrating in style at the final whistle, very much looking forward to four local derbies next year.
