Hollinwood (H)

Clayton secure seventh successive win, with 12 try hammering.

Clayton secured a seventh successive victory against brave visitors Hollinwood, initially grinding out a sizeable lead down the slope before cutting loose towards the end and running in some impressive tries. Coach Scott Pendlebury was back in charge, along with several other changes from last weeks hard fought success at Newsome. Clayton had beaten up Hollinwood in the reverse fixture, setting a marker down for the season in a 60-12 success. When Hollinwood initially arrived with 11 players, a similar victory was anticipated. They did start the game with 12, which became 13 after 25 minutes, but those initial efforts with a reduced set appeared to take its toll towards the end of the game. The opening period was a good physical encounter, Hollinwood giving their all, playing up the hill. At times, Clayton seemed to lose sight of the gameplan and on many occasions were guilty of overplaying rather than applying pressure and completing sets of six. The deadlock was broke by returning packman Christian Wooler, who took a great delayed ball by Devon Gurney to stroll under the posts. Ryan Wilkinson added the first of what would be ten successful conversations in an outstanding individual display. Hollinwood to their credit came back well though. After a couple of needless penalties were conceded, the ball was shipped wide and somehow the ball was planted down, despite looking short of the try line on initial viewing. Perhaps this was the wake up call Clayton required, as they quickly bounced back from this setback. Ryan Wilkinson brushed past 3 would be tacklers to score straight from a scrum set move, before Devon Gurney profited from hesitation in the away defence to pounce on a loose carry and walk over unopposed. Clayton had quickly switched back on and Gurney added another try shortly after, supporting a break by Wooler to sprint away past the covering tacklers. The final act of the half was a further try on the back of a scrum, Elliot McElroy this time brushing off the would be tacklers out wide. Despite leading 28-4 at half time, it was clear more could be done and if Clayton became more clinical, a real one sided scoreline was a possibility. Coach Scott Pendlebury warned Clayton that if they come out with the wrong attitude, Hollinwood would battle back into the game. Fortunately, this was not the case. Full back Josh Lanfear quickly added a further score, after a great long ball by Jimmy Waddington. Another long ball, this time by Kyle Newton resulted in a walk in try for Connor Mahoney, with Clayton utilising the full width of the pitch well throughout the second half. Half chances were becoming four pointers and Clayton were in no mood to slacken off. Ryan Wilkinson made a great break from a good line ball and unselfishly laid the ball on for Lanfear to touch down. Another try followed for Jimmy Waddington, before Hollinwood had their best spell of the half, which resulted in a score under the sticks. That was as good as it got though and Clayton really cut loose over the closing 15 minutes. Ryan Wilkinson broke the line once more, this time laying the ball onto the supporting Phil Redgrave, before Redgrave had his second in as many minutes, again supporting a break before handing off several would be tacklers to race in from 40 out. The final say was left for one those three players on a double. Josh Lanfear, who had re-entered the field at prop, somehow caught a missile of a kick in his stride, before showing great pace to race over from 80 out. Clayton really got going the last 15 and in the end it was a shame the game finished when it did. Hollinwood deserve great credit for manfully battling away against the odds and hopefully they take heart from the great first half effort they showed. Next up for Clayton is a tough looking challenge away at Worth Village next week.
