Two outstanding tries capped Newark’s final home league game of the season.
Supporters' player-of-the-year Aloesi Waqalevu scores try in the 53-0 victory. (310312MW10-4)
Newark swept to an eight-try, 53-0, win over Leicester Forest to register win number 20 in an unbeaten league programme so far.
The home side took an early lead with a penalty from fly-half Matt Cox before centre Aloesi Waqalevu turned on the style.
His break from midfield first wrong-footed the Forest defence before he showed the pace that enabled him to outfox the rest of the defence.
Cox converted Waqalevu’s score before adding a second penalty in the 24th minute.
Newark scored another two tries before half-time to gain a bonus point.
Chris Coen grabbed the third after a neat pass from captain Chris Tate before wing Will Britten touched down three minutes before the interval.
A further penalty by Cox early in the second-half continued the flow of points.
But the rest of the second-half did not bring the good play of the first 40 minutes. In fact, the match descended into a wrestling match at times with both teams having players sin- binned.
Newark did score four more tries, three from forward drives via Lewis Cove, Freddie Tatham and Shaun May amid some bruising play.
However, the eighth and last try was a special one as wing Toby Edlin raced clear from a tap penalty.
Newark take an Easter break this week before returning on April 14 for a league game at West Bridgford.
