Scintillating Stourbridge put on an imperious performance against promotion contenders Huddersfield to leave the visitors wondering what hit them.

Stour were looking to bounce back from a miserable defeat to Fylde and they set their stall out early with massive scrums which delivered an early penalty score for Gareth Simpson.

On seven minutes the hosts produced a fluid passing move from inside their own half to give Simpson his first try after a break by Joe Heatley.

Huddersfield looked rocked by the early Stour onslaught but replied with a Chris Johnson penalty however just a minute later more slick passing gave Simpson a second try and he slotted home the conversion as well.

The superb scrum-half stole possession to feed Dan Rundle who danced through the visitors from half way for try, Simpson again added the extras.

Despite solid defending by Stour, Huddersfield found a way through on 26 minutes after a period of pressure and Lewis Workman touched down in the corner.

Stour hit back again, another Heatley break and long pass put Rundle in down the left for the bonus point try.

Huddersfield galvanised to apply pressure on the Stour line and Tom Owen scored the try, Johnson converted to make it 27-15 half time.

From the restart, Huddersfield continued to keep the play in Stour territory but the hosts' much improved defence held firm, eventually they cleared and another massive scrum ended with the ball fed to Rundle who again crashed over in the corner.

The flying winger came inside to collect the ball for his next try, he looked unstoppable as he charged over the line and Simpson's boot added two more points.

After a scrappy passage of play the ball was spun out of a ruck deep in Stour territory for Joe Green to dot down for the visitors and Johnson secured the conversion.

Nick Murphy answered straight away with a try for Stour to ruthlessly deny hope to Huddersfield, Simpson was once more on target with the kick.

Heatley got his reward for another fine run from deep with a try and Luke Veebel benefitted from more great work by Rundle for another five points which Simpson converted to make the final score 58-22.
