CORBRIDGE Cenutrions turned on the style as they ran in 13 tries on their way to a comfortable 75-22 victory at Gosforth Phoenix.

The blend of experienced forwards and talented, young three-quarters proved the perfect combination as they ran away with the game.

Charlie Rutherford got the ball rolling following a break from Ollie Hillary, passing the move on to Rory Craney who was held up just short after a strong run.

Zak Pearce then finished an excellent move started by Ewan Morrell, who linked with Ryan Laverty and Peter Southern, and he was again on the scoresheet when he powered his way upfield from the halfway line.

Gosforth reduced the arrears with a well taken try, but Corbridge went into the break 29-5 ahead as brothers Kieran and Andy Adams both showed power and strength to cross from close range.

The home team started to tire in the second half, and the Centurions took full advantage with Jake Sloan finishing off a move instigated by Andy Harvey on the halfway line.

Next over was Peter Southern who lived up to his nickname Bullet as he showed a fine turn of pace to score a 40-metre solo effort.

Mark Smailes chased a Morrell kick and was rewarded with a nice try despite the attentions of several defenders, while a good run from Laverty saw him immediately cancel out a second try for Gosforth.

Pearce quickly scored his third and fourth tries of the day before Reuben Oliver marked his return from a lengthy injury by following a Robbie Nixon catch and drive to add another touch down.

There was still time for Gosforth to score their third and final try, before Rutherford was on hand to grab his second just before the final whistle.

While kicking was difficult in the windy conditions, Oliver slotted four conversions and Pearce one throughout.
