Alex Dolly inspires Doncaster Knights to nine-try rout of Cambridge
Scrum-half Alex Dolly scored a hat-trick of tries as Doncaster Knights made it two wins from two to start the Championship season. Doncaster notched nine tries in total as they ran out 61-14 winners at Cambridge backing up in fine style their opening win over Hartpury at Castle Park a week earlier.
Dolly also kicked eight out of nine conversions in a strong performance.
Steve Boden’s men had to wait 13 minutes before their third and Dolly’s first, but they added two more before half-time through Dolly again and Connor Edwards as they built a 35-0 lead.
There was no let-up after the break as Dolly completed his hat-trick and Joe Margetts touched down, either side of a converted Cambridge response.
Margetts with his second and a score by replacement hooker Cam Terry completed the rout as the Knights continued their relentless start to the season in the second tier.
