MK Wolves are heading for the play-offs after an emphatic 71-4 victory over Kings Lynn on Saturday.

In just the club’s second season, reaching the East RL Premier Division play-offs is a real achievement, though they’ll face a stern challenge in reigning champions North Herts Cruisaders.

Scott Aspinall got Wolves off the mark with an early converted score and then kicked a drop goal before before pacey winger Kelvin Dwumfuo ran in a length-of-the-field try.

Some great defensive work from MK set the platform for the next Wolves try – with commanding forward Kyle Boad breaking the Kings Lynn line before feeding talented hooker Kai Muroi who raced 50 yards to score.

MK continued to turn the screw with further first-half tries from centre Arran Perry, another from Kai Muroi, wing Kimo Kirby and a 70-yard breakaway try from athletic prop forward Ed Kilby giving Wolves a commanding 39-0 lead at half-time.

Kings Lynn got their sole try early into the second half, but having been on the wrong end of heavy scorelines earlier in the season, a hungry Wolves side were keen to round off the season by proving they could dish out ruthless results too.

Gav Whitehead added another try, while prolific scorer Oli Fountain added another as Wolves ran riot.

Further MK tries followed, with Fountain and Muroi completing their hat-tricks, and Kelvin Dwumfuo scoring a second to bring the final score to an impressive 71-4, and MK Wolves making the play-offs in only their second ever season.

Wolves travel to Letchworth on Saturday to take on North Herts Cruisaders in the play-off semi finals.
