Lock Lane rounded off their league games in good style and headed for the play-offs in good spirits when they ran in eight tries to beat East Hull 40-16 in the Premier Division of the National Rugby League Conference.

It was never as easy as the final score suggested as East Hull were only four adrift at 14-10 at half-time, but Lane’s extra class told in the end as they ultimately ran away with the contest.

Craig Duncan and Luke Tagg both scored twice for the Castleford side with Jimmy Cryer, Chris Siddons, Adam Garlick and Phil Lythe also adding their names to the score sheet and Cryer (three) and Garlick kicking goals.

Carl Puckering scored a try and kicked two goals for East Hull with Lee Hall and Jamie Edwards also crossing the line.

Despite the win Lock Lane have finished in third place in the table, behind Thatto Heath Crusaders and Wath Brow Hornets on points difference.

In a tight finish to the regular season all three teams at the top finished level on points, collecting 38 from their 26 matches.

Lane now face a home game against Egremont Rangers, who finished in sixth place, in the first round of the Conference play-offs this Saturday (kick-off 2pm).
