Thunder enjoy big win at Hemel
Evan Simons and Matty Marsh each scored hat-tricks as Newcastle Thunder hammered Hemel Stags 58-12 in Kingstone Press League 1.
Simons opened the scoring early on and had completed his treble by half-time, with Ali Blair helping himself to a double and Matty Beharrell and Dayne Craig also crossing.
Six successful conversions by Beharrell gave the Thunder a 40-6 lead at the break and Marsh\'s hat-trick rounded off a hugely satisfying afternoon for Newcastle, who have now won five of their six matches in 2015.
Michael Brown and Derrell Olpherts scored converted tries for Hemel but it was otherwise an afternoon to forget for the Stags.
