Queensbury determine not to be niled got their rewards just before the interval with an unconverted try.
Rovers hit off the second half in the same blistering form and looked red hot with ball in hanf and even though the result was in never in doubt the margin was. Rovers clinical finishing from Carl Saville, Sean Emblem, Dale Potter with Lee Maskill and Gareth Davies rounding up their hat-tricks forcing the referee to call half to proceedings with 10 minutes left on the clock.
Points from the boot came from Ferris 6, Hill 3 and Miles and Hick both chipping in with a goal a piece.
With such an outstanding performance Gordie Long and Lee Bettison will have a real headache with a full squad available for selection for one the biggest games of the season when they make the trip to Drighlington for the semi final ties of the Yorkshire Cup, Kick off 2pm.
