Yorkshire 56-6 Lancashire
Yorkshire made a mockery of the pre-match odds as they crushed a star-studded Lancashire team in the Origin Game at Odsal.
The White Rose side ran their much-fancied opponents ragged as they scored 10
tries to relieve Lancashire of their title with an emphatic win.
All seven of the Yorkshire backs crossed the try line to give the majority of an 8,258 crowd plenty to cheer on a gloomy evening in Bradford.
Yorkshire (30) 56
Tries: Senior 2, Calderwood, Thorman, Hodgson, Horne, Ellis, Diskin, Pryce 2
Goals: Thorman 8
Lancashire (0) 6
London Broncos star Chris Thorman proved Lancashire's chief tormentor, claiming a try and kicking eight goals while Keith Senior and Leon Pryce touched down twice.
Lancashire had controlled the majority of early possession but were 30-0 down at the interval after conceding five tries in a dreadful first 40 minutes.
The visitors went behind when Kevin Sinfield's stray pass was coolly intercepted by Leeds team-mate Senior, who raced 80 metres unchallenged to touch down by the posts.
Lancashire were exposed again when Mark Calderwood took a quick-tap restart and showed a clean pair of heels to score.
Winger Brian Carney was given a torrid time by his opposite number, Wigan club-mate David Hodgson, who burst clear to set up the third Yorkshire try.
Play was quickly shifted to the middle where Thorman chipped through and then
followed up to score.
Lancashire were again sliced open on 29 minutes as Gareth Ellis and Senior combined to put Hodgson over.
Thorman again converted and his work for the first half was not completed as
he was called upon to add the extras to a try from Richard Horne.
Lancashire were missing the creativity of Paul Sculthorpe, who was forced to withdraw from the game late on due to a hamstring injury.
They finally managed to get themselves on the scoreboard immediately after the restart when Paul Deacon broke clear and put Sean O'Loughlin over.
Andrew Farrell converted but normal service was soon resumed when Hudson burst clear for Gareth Ellis to score.
Hooker Matt Diskin then wriggled through several challenges to add a seventh White Rose touchdown before Pryce ensured all the Yorkshire backs had got on the scoresheet.
Yorkshire wrapped up a fine night's work with two tries in the last three minutes, Senior touching down in the corner and Pryce claiming his second of the match.
