Phil Campbell crossed in the corner to give Hemsworth a commanding 22-0 lead at the break.

Centre Paul Hewitt marked his first team debut in style, breaking through to cross under the posts and Joe Thompson added the goal.

Jake Thompson went over in the corner again for an unconverted try and the scoring was completed when Hewitt broke through from a line out to score, Rob Taylor adding the extras.
