All Blacks are back in business.

A RE-ORGANISED Meltham All Blacks returned to winning ways with a 40-16 Division V triumph at King Cross Park.

The visitors were soon into their stride, with Ben Moorhouse opening the scoring with some powerful running down the left and, from the resulting kick-off, the position was created for Gareth Atkinson to step a couple of defenders to score under the posts.

Kings Cross Park responded with a try of their own, but the All Blacks hit back positively, with Rob Lewis finishing off a good flowing move before Ross White added try No4.

The good work continued at the start of the second half as Lewis broke away and fed White to finish off.

Although the home side then added to their tally, Meltham were quickly back in the groove when Gareth Atkinson stole the ball in a one-on-one tackle and stepped over for the simplest of tries.

Again, Kings Cross found a response with a confusing penalty try, but the All Blacks had the final say as Lewis took the ball on the halfway line and broke four or five tackles to score under the posts to round off a solid Meltham performance.

Gareth Atkinson converted all but one of Meltham's tries.
