Full Time Report

Thunder storm Scorpions defence

Tom Reudiger ran in four tries as Newcastle Thunder claimed a comprehensive 50-12 victory over Kingstone Press League 1 strugglers South Wales Scorpions.

Newcastle held a 16-6 advantage at the break thanks to Reudiger's brace and Jason Payne's try. Sion Jones' converted try kept South Wales in the contest but the Thunder ran riot in the second half.

Benn Hardcastle would convert two of his six extras as Derrell Olpherts and Josh Kittrick extended their lead before Reudiger completed his hat-trick after 57 minutes. Reudiger grabbed his fourth try of the afternoon before Olpherts scored his second.

Tries from Jamie Murphy and Alex Davidson would prove to be consolations for the Scorpions as Mikey Wood wrapped up victory with a try late on.
