“It was everything I hoped, I really enjoyed it” was one of the many comments heard as Hull Dockers Masters left the pitch after their first ever game of Masters visiting Oulton Raiders Masters last Sunday.
Oulton Raider, who themselves were playing only their third game of Masters, were excellent hosts and played a big part in making the game a display of true Masters.
The relatively young – by Masters standards – Dockers side started at a hundred miles an hour and through the ball around with precision and speed.
However, it was the standout try was scored after a 50 metre breakaway by Dockers red short player Dean Goodwin.
Scott Stephens, who played a Masters as a guest for Leeds Akkies Masters earlier in the year, has been tireless in organising the Dockers Masters team.
The sign of his success was to have the Dockers Masters arrive by coach and for 20 players to take to the field with a small army of spectators.
Masters is in good hands in Hull.
We look forward to going across to East Yorkshire in 2016!
