The blue and golds got back to winning ways in this encounter which saw a strong first-half setting them up for victory.
With Jack and Bobby Howdle on duty for Hull FC reserves and Lewis Poskitt away on holiday some re-shuffling was forced upon Scott Taylor.
Lewis Straw took the pivotal number 7 jersey and Peter Starling was recalled to the centre and Sam Coleman to the second row. The bench also saw recalls for Will Wallis and Bradley Kirkby.
Beverley were quickly out of the traps. After 2 minutes, Lewis Straw intercepted from deep in his own half to step inside the chasing cover defender to score and convert himself. Tom Moor added another try from dummy half after 8 minutes again converted.
Shaw Cross quickly replied when Cameron Benson returned a kick to race away and score despite a determined chase. Sam Otwell converted. After both sides traded attacks on each other’s line, Beverley stretched their advantage.
A Lewis Straw bomb saw possession re-gained and Sam Coleman’s quick thinking sent Alex Starling over wide out for another Straw conversion. Very shortly after a penalty gave the home side a repeat set and Alex Starling quickly added his second from close range. Straw converted and soon after he added a penalty to give Beverley a commanding 26-6 lead at the break.
Eager to press on in the second half, a penalty rolled the hosts on. The resulting set saw Will Wallis score his first try for the club at senior level. The extras were not added but the game looked to be put to bed. The visitors were in no mood to capitulate and the final quarter of the game saw them dominate possession and territory.
Cameron Benson and Ben Ripley touched down for them with Otwell converting one of them. Beverley’s defending was put to the test and there was one outstanding try-saving tackle by man of the match Peter Starling who had to switch to full back due to Billy Riby limping off.
This was an important two league points which will see Scott Taylor feel all the better. He had to head off early to join his Hull FC teammates on their journey to the capital for Sunday’s game against the London Broncos.
