Hull's perfect 10 too hot for DKs.

HULL 62 DUDLEY K'FORD 0 DUDLEY Kingswinford suffered their 20th defeat of a demoralising campaign in National Two North as they crashed at fellow strugglers Hull.

The Heathbrook side had shown great improvements in recent weeks, especially against league leaders Darlington Mowden Park, but any hope of survival is all but gone.

The hosts ran in five tries in the opening 40 minutes with full-back Jamie Barnard bagging a hat-trick and No 8 Santiago Socino adding two. Greg Lound kicked two conversions.

Hull continued to pile on the pressure after the interval and flanker Max Argyle was driven over for a converted score on 51 minutes.

Clarke added try number seven eight minutes later before Joe Stafford raced home on 62 minutes.

Argyle bagged his second of the match with time running out, while Bright made it a perfect 10 for the hosts, who saw prop Harrison Lloyd dismissed late in the second period.

With a visit from fellow strugglers Bromsgrove, who have lost their last nine matches, next Saturday, DKs will be hoping that they secure their first morale-boosting win.

While relegation to National Three Midlands is extremely likely, Shaun Perry's side will be keen that they go down fighting.
