St Dominic’s were on another level against Hunter SHS, blasting their way to a 56-6 win.

The next generation of Penrith Panthers stars ran riot as St Dominic’s College out-muscled Hunter Sports High 56-6 in Round 2 of the NRL Schoolboy Cup.

Luke Hansen, Keagan Russell-Smith, Ryley Smith and Liam Ison formed a clinical spine and orchestrated St Dom’s second victory in the prestigious competition.

“It was good to have an away trip and come away with a pretty dominant win, makes the the bus ride back home a lot batter,” St Dom’s coach Kyle Churchill said.

“(Ison and Smith’s return) definitely helped, but I was probably more pleased with the way we played. We were humming better than we have been over the last couple of weeks in our school comp, you can see the confidence come back quick. Those senior players stepping up obviously help as well.”

Hunter SHS threw everything at their opponents and prop Kade Youlten always looked dangerous, but they simply couldn’t match it with the boys from Penrith.

St Dom’s forwards Mason Teague and Lachlan Whitehouse were formidable through the middle for and managed to tire the homeside early.

Undefeated St Dom’s will face their biggest test of the Cup in Round 3, when they take on a fierce St Gregory’s College side.

“Greg’s are probably going to be our biggest battle, they’re winning games in MCS, they’re always hard to beat in the Schoolboy Cup” Churchill said.

It took just three minutes for St Dom’s to strike. The visitors created an overlap out left that saw flyer Joshua Debritt stroll over to open the scoring.

Minutes later, the school’s right winger Bayley Brothwick touched down, cleaning up an awkward grubber courtesy of halfback Keagan Russell-Smith.

The No.7 crossed next, thanks to a brilliant line-break by fullback Liam Ison.

The courageous Hunter boys kept fighting and Youlten was eventually rewarded with a four-pointer of his own. But nothing could stop the barrage of St Dom’s tries as Baley Brothwick, Kobi Brothwick, Lachlan Blackburn, Lachlan Squires and Russell-Smith each crashed over in the second stanza.
