Gateshead Thunder 4-46 Rochdale Hornets
Hornets sting Thunder
Wayne English ran in two tries as second-placed Rochdale Hornets cruised to a 46-4 victory at Gateshead Thunder in Kingstone Press Championship 1.
English scored the first try of the afternoon after 14 minutes and that was swiftly followed by another from John Cookson.
Adam Swift and Dom Speakman added further tries before the break to put the visitors firmly in command at 24-0.
It was more of the same after the break as English added his second try before Gareth Langley went over to score in the 50th minute.
And after Michael Ratu and Dayne Donoghue got their names on the scoresheet, Gateshead gave their fans something to cheer as Chris Heil grabbed a consolation try.
Paul Crook had seven goals for Rochdale.
