Five tries from Workington Town mean they have the upper hand at the break against visitors West Wales Raiders.

Town are in the driving seat as they look to add another two points to their League 1 tally as they look to consolidate their play-off place.

Town were quick off the mark to get their visitors on the back foot from the off. In just the second minute they were down and pressing on the West Wales line.

It was Sean Penkywicz who saw the opportunity as he whipped the ball out wide to winger Jonathan Walsh and he strode over the line, with Carl Forber adding the extras from the touchline.

Just minutes later it looked as though Penkywicz had done enough to dummy his way through the defence but as he looked to pass out of the last tackle the ball went astray and the Welsh side gratefully scooped it up.

But it was Town who were caught out close to their own line as Philip Cowburn got on the end of a kick to dart over and added his own conversion to level the scores.

Danny Tickle put Workington back ahead when he burst over the try line near the posts, leaving Forber an easy conversion.

Workington were despondent when Stevie Scholey dropped the ball close to his own line but West Wales mirrored the mistake moments later and Town capitalised.

Penkywicz picked the ball up and set off a move involving two or three players that saw Russ Bolton hare off up the touchline. He showed a great turn of pace to outrun the visiting defence and touch down, with Forber again on target with the goal.

On the half hour mark Gordon Maudling got on the end of a nice kick from the boot of Doran to race over the line, with Forber converting.

And the half-back got his fifth goal of the afternoon when he tagged it onto the end of a Caine Barnes try just before half time, the powerful forward taking several defenders over the line with him as he scored.

And that meant Town had the advantage at the break, going in 30-6 ahead of their visitors.
