MARK Dunning has spoken of his delight at a ‘clinical and disciplined’ performance yesterday evening – where six debutants featured in the 50-6 win over Widnes Vikings.

The home side scored six tries in a dominant first-half display with Jayden Myers, Jacob Campbell, David Kamano, Oliver Scott, Marcus Green and Rafael Dias all scoring.

The second-half saw the introduction of a number of Under-15 talents who all impressed – with Myles Lawford grabbing a brace of tries in a 14-point haul.

Scholarship head coach Dunning admits he was pleased with the ‘side before self’ motto on show – insisting the future looks bright with the young talent on show.

“It was a really clinical, disciplined performance and before the game we set some targets on how they can develop on what they did last time out and I thought they answered them targets really well,” said Dunning.

“All the young kids that came on did well, there was six Under-15s on the bench who came on and acquitted themselves realy well so absolutely delighted with that.

“We set a challenge at half time to try keep the ‘0’ – you have got to challenge young blokes and they have got to accept it and front up to that challenge and I thought they did that.

“We spoke about the side before self motto before the game and some of the tries early on was really good skill and really unselfish too – it was a team game, a team effort and a team victory.

“The scary and exciting thing is some of the boys will go on in the Under-18s next year, some will stay in the Under-16s and the youth is in a very good state.

“As a club we need to keep moving forward and if we can continue with nights like tonight it will only benefit the club.”
