DORA Creek continued its strong start to the Newcastle Hunter Rugby League B Grade premiership with a 54-8 rout of Carrington at Neville Thompson Oval on Saturday.

The new-look Swampies had too many attacking weapons for Carrington, running in 10 tries to two in front of an appreciative home crowd.

Dora Creek led 32-4 at the break, and withstood a brutal physical and verbal challenge from Carrington early in the second stanza, before running away with the contest.

Two Dora Creek players were sin binned, but they were followed minutes later by a Carrington player who was marched for fighting.

Dora Creek leads the ladder with a points differential of 62. There are no B Grade matches this weekend.

Meanwhile, Macquarie Scorpions, who were saving most of their top squad for a NSW Challenge Cup match at Leichhardt Oval on Wednesday night, rested about a dozen players in their 28-12 loss to Wests in the first grade trial at Lyall Peacock Field on Saturday.
