Dayne Craig hat-trick inspires Newcastle win

Dayne Craig scored a hat-trick as Newcastle Thunder ran nine tries past South Wales Scorpions in a 50-16 demolition in Kingstone Press League One.

It was one-way traffic right from the start for the visitors, with Jason Tali touching down before Matt Barron followed suit in the opening 10 minutes.

Tom Capper, Craig and Matty Beharrell crossed the whitewash before the Scorpions got on the board through tries from Barrie Phillips and two for Jonny Leather.

However Charlie Wabo restored the comfortable lead after half-time to make it 30-16, before Craig (with two) and Tali wrapped up the win.
