Holt pile up the points

Holt powered to a 58-8 victory over struggling Thurston, with the result never in doubt from the moment Rumsby crossed for an early try and Allen converted.

Three minutes later Holt executed one of their lethal driving mauls for Hill to touch down.

The visitors then reduced the arrears with an unconverted try but Holt swept downfield again for Wright to finish off another driving maul.

Holt felt the game was there for the taking at the break and Graham Ilsley scored from another maul to increase the score to 22-5 moments after the restart.

Holt were now well and truly calling the tune and Such and Jarry-Ryan added their names to the scorers with two unconverted tries in the next few minutes.

Thurston were up against a determined side who were throwing the ball about well and it was no surprise when Mears scored midway through the half and then Ilsley scored his second try two minutes later. Both were converted by Young, giving Holt a comfortable 46-5 lead.

Loane, who had come on a scrum-half replacement for Girling, added his name to the scorers with 10 minutes remaining, with Young converting.
