BURTON Under-13 Bulldogs recovered from an early deficit to put Burntwood to the sword.
After loaning the under-strength opposition enough players to start Bulldogs showed no mercy in an early scrum.
They put the shunt on before Niall Collett shipped the ball out to Ben Acton, who went to ground, and then secured the ball before Jake O’Toole went over for an unconverted opening try.
A Niall Collett break came to nothing with no players in support before Burntwood claimed an uncoverted try of their own.
And almost stright from the kick-off the away side ran in their second of the day to forge into the lead.
Burton’s response was immediate, as O’Toole somehow came away with the ball after Burntwood attempted to secure possession before claiming his second try of the day.
It got better for the hosts when Pete Grainger ran under the posts for a fantastic try converted by Niall Collett for a 17-10 lead at the break.
In the second-half, O’Toole completed his hat-trick with a try converted by Harry Roden.
Millar Pride was next to get in on the try-scoring act.
Burntwood then got over the line to keep in the contest at 29-15 down, but an excellent Ben Acton score, converted by Roden, increased the gap.
Ben Acton bagged the final try as Bulldogs once again ran under the posts. But the cruel wind prevented Roden from adding the extras, giving a final score-line of 41-15 in Burton’s favour.
A Burton Bulldogs spokesman said: “A fantastic match played by all the Burton lads, well done.”
