THREE tries from Jack Collins earned Hinchingbrooke a convincing victory against Longsands in the second round of the Daily Mail Cup.
Playing in weather conditions which hampered fast-flowing rugby, it was always likely to be down to the forwards to show their domination and they needed to give a tough, decisive performance.
After just six minutes, good forward play led to Collins crossing the line for his first try after brushing aside several opposition tackles.
Wayne Bradley kicked the conversion at the second attempt after the referee deemed an infringement on the line by a Longsands player.
More excellent forward play after 20 minutes saw Collins cross the line for his second try and again Bradley stepped up to add the points from the conversion.

Longsands nearly held out until half-time but conceded a penalty which enabled Bradley to find touch.
This came after a good passage of play in which Collins received the ball and evaded several challenges before crossing for the game's third try.
Once again Bradley obliged by kicking the conversion.
The second half was played in deteriorating weather conditions and despite the odd half-chance the defences of both teams came out on top as mistakes were made by both sides.
