NEWLY-PROMOTED Henley Hawks got their National Division 1 season off to a flying start with a resounding victory over visitors Tynedale at Dry Leas on Saturday.
The Hawks played with the same flair that earned them the Division 2 South title last season as they scored seven tries by six of their backs.
A crowd of 625 saw the Hawks run out 51-17 winners with two tries from Tom Allen and one apiece for Martin Nutt, James Comben, Alan Awcock, Danny Wells and Tommy Haynes.
This Saturday the Hawks travel to Esher.
