Falcons are flying high.

Huddersfield RU's second team enjoyed a big win over West Park Bramhope.

The Falcons were 69-3 victors with two tries apiece from Howard Hanks, Tom Stubley and Mike Murphy.

There were also touchdowns by Nick Sharpe, Lal Chatha, Richard Doyne, George Hinchliff and Mark Lockwood, while skipper Mark Saltmarsh landed seven goals.

The Under 14s scored a 19-0 win over a physical Oldham side.

Much of the first half was played in the middle of the park with both sides only venturing into their opponents 22 after the ball was kicked.

The second period was far more entertaining with Huddersfield pushing forward from the off.

Chris Brook's quick tap penalty set up Joe Quinn, who caught the Oldham defence unaware and ran in under the sticks unopposed, with Brook adding the extras.

The second try was more of a team effort, with the ball being kept alive by some good offloads.

Winger Lewis Wroe passed inside to Brook, who held the last defender before passing out to Sam Dalby, who ran down the wing but managed to put the ball down by the posts, for another Brook conversion.

The final try came from a fine break by scrum half Tom Mason, who cut through to score in the corner.

Men of the match were flanker Luke Karolczuk and Wroe.
