Hull Wasps made it four straight wins by storming to a 107-48 victory at Mersey Tigers II on Sunday afternoon. The Wasps were dominant from tip-off and never looked back from an opening 24-12 quarter. The Wasps were even more dominant in the second with a 29-8 run which gave this visitors a 53-20 half-time lead to all but kill off the game.

The Wasps dominance continued and showed no signs of slipping up even without key players in James Rayner, Chris Cummings and John Brignell. They closed out the game with Matt Brutnell top scoring with 22 points, Adrian Blatherwick scoring 20 and Miles Anderson scoring 17.

Following the game, player-coach Matt Fawcett said: "It's another excellent result for the team today, once again showing how hard work pays off.

"We never let up for a minute and showed how good a squad we have. We have just three games left now to finish the job. Hopefully we'll get other results going our way too."

Next weekend, the Wasps have time off in the schedule with Cheshire Jets II pulling out of the league. The next game for Wasps will be away at Liverpool on Saturday 3 March.
