DUDLEY Kingswinford were in devastating fashion to hammer Midlands Division Two West visitors Camp Hill 67-7.

In perfect conditions at Heathbrook, Camp Hill showed all the early initiative and DK were penned inside their own half for the first 10 minutes.

Centre Simon Edwards was narrowly wide with an eighth minute penalty before Dudley took the lead in their first attack of the game after 10 minutes.

A strong 40-metre break down the right touch from Jak Davies up to the Camps 22 was then spread wide left for Robbie Jones to cross in the corner.

Gareth Bown converted from the touchline for DK to lead 7-0.

A magnificent tackle back from Stefan Shillingford prevented what looked like a certain try for the visitors after 13 minutes.

At this stage DK were not at their best as they kicked away good possession time after time but some harsh words from head coaches Neil Shillingford and Mark Lockley the hosts hit form in fine style.

Firstly sharp breaks from Stuart Bratt and Jamie Ramsey proceeded a defence splitting break from Tom Weaver who sent in second-row Ed Parry after 24 minutes to make it 12-0.

Rampant DK scored again on 24 minutes.

After a couple of drives had been held up on the Camps line, prop Bratt neatly stepped through to the posts for his first senior try and Bown converted for 19-0.

On 30 minutes Andy McEwen erupted from a maul to make a break before passing left to Robbie Jones who cruised in from 30 metres to make it 24-0.

Another great break from Weaver set up DK’s fifth try after 32 minutes, he handed on to Bown who set up a ruck from which the ball was swiftly spun out to Stefan Shillingford who barged over close to the posts. Bown converted and DK were almost out of sight at 31-0.

Camps managed to stem the tide for a few more minutes until in stoppage time quick-thinking Tommy Huggins robbed the Camps scrum ball to send Shillingford away on a superlative run before sending in Bown under the posts, who converted his own try to make the half-time score 38-0.

DK increased their lead to 45-0 with another converted try after 45 minutes.

Bown changed direction from the open side to blind and gave the ball to Matt Taylor, who scored under the posts without a hand being laid on him for converted try.

There was a five minute stalemate on the Camps line before DK moved the ball wide for Taylor to cruise in for his second try to make it 50-0 on 64 minutes.

Taylor was in again making it 55-0 after 66 minutes for his hat trick after another break from Bown.

Camp Hill did get a momentarily respite after 68 minutes when a loose DK pass was intercepted by centre Simon Edwards who touched down at the posts and converted his try for 55-7.

DK eclipsed this hiccup with a 10th try on 72 minutes when the ball was spread left and then right for prop Al Francis to score an unconverted try to make it 60-7.

Finally a break from replacement centre Simon Fletcher sent replacement wing James Jefferson in for DK’s 11th try of the day.

Bown added the conversion to make the final score 67-7.

DK are at home to Whitchurch next Saturday (3pm kick-off).
