Winger Jack Torkington scored four tries as Furness ruthlessly demolished a depleted Wigton Wanderers 99-34 in Cumbria Division Two last Saturday.

The division’s bottom side arrived at the Strawberry Grounds with just 12 players, leading to the hosts to lend three of their own to make up the numbers.

Unfortunately, after they in fact kicked the game’s first points, that’s exactly what Wigton did, as Furness scored six unanswered tries before the basement boys could reply and by half-time the score was already 45-10.

Furness’ scoring rate only increased in the second half, as they fell just short of racking up three figures, although it is to Wigton’s credit that they fired a few shots of their own to come away with a try-bonus point.

Windermere were the winners in the south Cumbria derby held at Wilson Park, as 14 points from fly-half Bertie Hodgson helped them see off Millom 19-12.

Hodgson slotted a couple of penalties, as Millom’s early discipline let them down, but the visitors then got on the wrong side of the referee, with the hosts eventually making their pressure tell with an unconverted try.

Hodgson then ran in with half an hour played to put Windermere 11-5 up at half-time, only for Millom to score almost straight from the restart to claim the lead.

Brad Askam put the visitors back in front when he was driven over before Hodgson sealed victory with his third penalty.
