Wyke went to Hull side Skirlaugh with 6 changes from there previous win against Wakefield Hawks and came away with a 48-34 win.
Wyke started slowly but when Tevin Campbell acrobatically dived in at the corner and with Brad clarkson adding the extras they took a 6-0 lead. From the resultant kick off the referee decided to penilise the Wyke side for dissent to him and the result proved catastrophic as they conceded from that penalty and then from the kick off. With further slack tackling from Wyke the Hull side went 18-6 up. Wyke sides of old would have thrown the towel in at this point and slipped to a heavy loss however Wormald and Barraclough’s men do not know when they are beat and decided to step up and take control. First Clarkson drove over after great approach play from Jordan Myers and then a training ground move payed dividends when man of the match Calvin Barker went through to feed captain Jordan Payton to go in under the sticks allowing Clarkson to add the extras to the latter to go in at half time 18-16 down. The second half saw a precession if tries. First super sub Sam Kittsen dived over keeping his try scoring tally ticking over and then another acrobatic effort from Campbell was followed by a cheeky ball steal from Payton to score his second of the game. This put the black and whites up 32-18 with Clarkson kicking two of the three conversions. Back came the Hull side with two tries either side of a James Cullen effort to keep the game on a knife edge at 36-28 and when the hull side scored again after Ckarkson was wrongfully sin binned it was game on at 36-34. After some stiff words behind the sticks from the players they re-grouped and rallied. Props Robinson and Grocock took control of the game to leave skipper Payton to first feed Gary Worley to hit Alec Williams for a try out wide and then put Barker through a huge hole to score under the sticks leaving payton 2 more easy conversions to leave Hull with a victory. Wormald said after the game “we travelled light today with the 17 players myself, Baz and only a handful of supporters to what will be one of our toughest games. I would like to thank the people who came as it’s a long journey and the bulls Leeds game was on. The game was tough and we didn’t play well but I always believe this side can beat anyone. They have more try scoring prowess than any team I’ve ever been involved with, which means on a bad day we concede too many but still score 48 points with a few kicks missed. So all in all I think it’s a good day in the office for us as a team. We have two home games this week and we need players to step up and play for both teams”.
