Full Time Report

Danny Ansell edges Hunslet past Newcastle

Danny Ansell scored a late try to earn Hunslet Hawks a 28-24 victory over Newcastle Thunder in Kingstone Press League 1.

Matt Carbutt added to Ansell's early effort to put Hunslet in control and they went into the break with a slender advantage after Richie Barnett responded to tries from Thomas Reudinger and Vincent Rennie.

The Hawks crossed through George Flanagan and Ayden Faal either side of scores from Derrell Olpherts and Jared Simpson to remain in charge but they fell behind with 12 minutes remaining when Rhys Clarke went over.

Thunder appeared set to hold on for a hard-fought win only for Ansell to convert his own try two minutes from time as Hunslet edged to their first league triumph of the new season.
