York enjoy 11-try demolition of Hemel Stags to stay perfect

York City Knights maintained their perfect start to the season with a 60-6 victory over Hemel Stags at Pennine Way.

A superb attacking display saw the visitors run in 11 tries to claim their seventh straight win in the calendar year.

York got off to a flying start as tries from Ed Smith, Richard Wilkinson, Jordy Crowther, Adam Dent, Tyler Craig and a brace from Kriss Brining saw the visitors race into a 38-0 lead at the interval.

Josh Tonks' converted score early in the second period extended their advantage before Pat Smith stretched over to make it 50-0.

Ben Stead raced the length of the field to score a consolation for Hemel but York responded with a try from Wilkinson as Danny Nicklas scored his eighth conversion of the afternoon.

Brining crossed the whitewash for his hat-trick late on as the Knights eased to their third consecutive win in Kingstone Press League 1.
