HUGO ELLIS’ hat-trick saw Rosslyn Park to a storming 47-14 win against a competitive Canterbury at the Rock.

Craig Holland grabbed two tries while Ben Howard finished off the win with a debut score.

It was Canterbury who took the early lead, Dan Smart finishing off a move from the line-out four minutes in.

Put Park were level four minutes later through Dan Laventure’s drive, Harry Leonard converting.

And the home side were leading on 16 minutes, Ellis leading from the front to finish a blistering counter-attack.

Holland got his first try at the Rock in style on 20 minutes, running around Canterbury’s defence.

And his second came with two minutes to half time from Jack Gash and Joe Munro’s quick thinking at a penalty.

Canterbury repeated the first half by getting the first score after the restart, Jamie Dever finishing a maul on 50 minutes.

But the momentum did not last long, Ellis working with Holland with some quick hands for his second try two minutes later.

And the captain’s hat-trick was complete on the hour, eluding the visitors’ defence at the scrum.

Canterbury dominated the last 10 minutes after sin-bins for James Freeman and Harry Leonard, who was involved in a spat with sin-binned Royce Cadman.

But Howard’s counter-attack try left the visitors with nothing to take home.
