Brook showed no mercy by scoring 16 tries in their demolition of lowly Peterlee.

Stephen Parkinson started the scoreboard ticking with two tries in the opening five minutes.

And, in the next 15 minutes, Brook were already out of sight courtesy of tries from Joe Bate, Sean Richardson and Aaron Hewitt - who finished in the corner following a sparkling move involving Greg Hale and Sam Long on his debut following a pre-season injury.

Hale then made the break for Mark Webster’s try and minutes later the Brook skipper helped himself to a try as Brook kept the ball alive on the last tackle.

Darren Forshaw spotted a gap in the defence to race away for a solo try and just before the half time whistle Danny Parkes lofted a kick into the corner for Hewitt who leapt the highest to collect and touchdown.

The home side went in at half time with a 50-point lead.

Plucky Peterlee found some resistance and held Brook at bay for the opening 10 minutes of the second half however Long broke the deadlock with his first try for the club following a break from the ruck by Danny Fairhurst.

Two minutes later Dave Scott sent Parkinson over for his hat-trick.

Parkinson then made the breaks for Brook’s next two tries - sending Hewitt over for his hat-trick before a carbon-copy move sent Hale racing away for his second score.

Hale completed his hat-trick in the 70th minute and crossed for his fourth try just two minutes later.

With five minutes remaining prop Josh Glynn created the space for Jordy Welsby to stroll over for Brook’s final score, with Parkinson converting his 13th goal of the afternoon to equal his club record of 38 points in a game.
