HIGH-flying Malvern piled more misery on rock-bottom Old Yardleians as they racked up 13 tries in an 85-7 mauling in Midlands Two West (South).

Conor Giggle had a day to remember as he struck four times while Ieuan Mustow bagged a hat-trick and Rob Cook and Adam Dixon both notched braces at Tilehouse Lane.

There were also tries for Sam Thomas and Richard Hobbs as Malvern registered their six straight league victory to remain at the top of the table.

Cook’s side, who host struggling Silhillians on Saturday (2.15pm), were without both of their first-choice props and captain Tom Hale due to injury and illness for the trip to Old Yardleians.

But after a messy first 10 minutes, the visitors crossed the whitewash as Dixon found Cook who rode several tackles to score and convert his own try.

The floodgates then opened as Giggle went over before making a break and passing inside to Mustow to stride in.

As Malvern turned up the heat, it was Mustow who broke with Cook on his shoulder to receive the scoring pass for the bonus point try. The former Gloucester man added his fourth conversion to extend his team’s lead to 28-0.

Yards responded by taking the ball to Malvern’s line, but suffered a further blow when a quick tap penalty was taken and Giggle was sent on an 80-metre burst up the wing to score.

Luke Milton then got in the action as he broke from full-back before Thomas touched down in the corner.

Leading 40-0 at the break, Malvern started to ring the changes but they remained firmly on the front foot.

A quick tap penalty saw Dixon stroll through with a classic dummying break before Cook put Giggle away for his hat-trick try.

The Lakelander then got involved again as he sent Dixon in for his second which was converted by Cook.

Yards tested the Malvern defence but were forced into knocking the ball while Malvern continued to convert their chances. Hobbs used his forward power to burst through and go over. Cook added the extras.

It was then Mustow's turn to show his class with a turn of speed from 70 metres out to score.

Giggle added to his tally before Mustow sped through to score, with Cook's kick ending their scoring for the day.

A spirited period of play saw Yards camped on Malvern's line in the dying minutes of the game and they finally got on the scoreboard with a converted try.
