It was difficult to take much out of Furness Raiders' match against Huddersfield Giants Academy at Craven Park, as they swatted aside their under-strength and outgunned opponents with a landslide 112-6 victory.

The hosts ran in 21 tries in what was little more than a training exercise on Wednesday evening, as they gently got themselves back to winning ways following their first defeat of the season at Hull FC Academy.

Ethan Bickerdyke crossed the whitewash four times as part of a personal haul of 32 points, while Max Anderson-Moore helped himself to a hat-trick.

While it was never a contest, Raiders coach David Cairns was pleased to see his players play to their structure, rather than let their minds wander and throw ambitious miss passes or attempt flamboyant off-loads.

Cairns said: "It's easy to get carried away and for people to start taking things on they wouldn't normally do during a game.

"We do try to stick to a structure, but we don't want to stop the lads from playing. We didn't want to be disrespectful to them because we've still got to play to our structure and that's massive because when we come up against a good side we can't play that way.

"If you get into the habit of playing that way, then if you suddenly come up against a good side - like Hull were the other week - then you could find yourself in trouble."

It was 30-0 by the time 21 minutes had been played, as Shane Sanderson, Bickerdyke, Connor Terrill, Dan Hadwen, Max Anderson-Moore and Jack Newbiggin all went over.

Anderson-Moore completed his treble either side of Josh Holmes bagging his first of the night before Huddersfield scored their only try through Byron Weise.

Jack Crarey's try took the half-time score to 52-6 before Bickerdyke ran in his second and third scores within three minutes of the restart.

There was no let-up for the remainder of the game, as Holmes, Hadwen, Owen Bridle, Bickerdyke, Terrill, Billy Harrison, Sanderson and Charlie Emslie (2) made the most of gaping holes in the visitors' defence.

The final try, where Emslie followed up after Terrill was tackled, pleased Cairns, who said: "All we want is when we do make breaks is that we've got numbers either side and that's all about advancing our play, rather than just one man breaking through and scoring from 50 yards.

"It's better if I see there are two blokes alongside him who are supporting and then we can play off the back of that. Against a good side, a good full back will probably take them out and we can go again if there's support."
