Warrington Wolves man scores four against Scotland as Hull KR men shine and former Leeds Rhinos man scores for England Knights

Scotland’s preparations for the World Cup weren’t what they would have wanted as they lost to Paul Anderson’s England Knights.

The Knights made a few changes to the side who beat France B last week with the likes of Harvie Hill making their debuts.

Jack Broadbent moved to the wing as Ellis Longstaff moved to centre and on the wing the former Rhino got the first try of the game.

It came from a lovely sweeping move with Olly Russell’s grubber kick paving the way for him to score in the left corner.

Not to be left out, fellow winger Josh Thewlis of the Warrington Wolves got in on the act as he dummied from acting half on the last tackle to duck over for a simple try.

Thewlis got a second for the afternoon thanks to lovely play from Mikey Lewis. The Hull KR half picked Thewlis out on the edge to make it 12-0 at the break with no conversion nailed in the first 40.

In the second half, Thewlis wasted very little time in going in search of a hat-trick and it came for him via a probing kick from Lewis which waited in the corner for Thewlis to score.

Three wasn’t enough for the Warrington winger as he backed up a bust from Will Pryce and support from Deon Cross to score in the corner to make it 22-0.

The final two tries of the game went the way of Hull KR men but one for either side. Kane Linnett got Scotland’s only try of the game chasing a grubber kick and grounding before two men from rival clubs combined at the end to round off the scoring.

A brilliant run and offload from Jordan Lane enabled Jez Litten to go over for a deserved try as Hull KR players enjoyed an impressive outing.

As for Scotland, it’s not the result they would have wanted going into the World Cup as they lost 28-6 to the Knights.
