But it was Mullins who possibly made as big an impression as the hat-trick hero. He posed a constant threat to the Whites defence, scored a second half try and received the biggest ovation of the evening when he was replaced in the dying minutes.
The Whites opened the scoring with a try from Kieron Dawson after five minutes but trailed 19-5 at the interval and they needed a piece of individual brilliance from Tyrone Howe on two occasions in the second half to save themselves from a bigger defeat..
