Doncaster thrash Raiders

Doncaster have kept their good run of form going with a 54-0 win over West Wales Raiders.

Two tries from Jason Tali and Menzie Yere and individual efforts from Matty Chrimes, Matty Beharrell, Connor Bower, Watson Boas, Jordan Howden and Sam Doherty earned the big win for the Dons

Hunslet win playoff battle against Newcastle

Hunslet survived a second half comeback to win a vital game at Newcastle Thunder.

They went ahead thanks to two tries from James Saltonstall and another from Nathan Chappell.

Chappell got his second try just after the break, but then the Thunder pulled two tries back through Kieran Gill and Alex Clegg.

Another try for Saltonstall stretched Hunslet out further in front but the Thunder responded again with Lewis Young.

The South Leeds side then wrapped the game up with a try from Gareth Potts.

North Wales win at Coventry to pull away from the bottom

North Wales Crusaders won at Coventry Bears to pull away from the bottom of the table.

The Bears took the lead early on through Reece Rance, but fell behind through tries by David Eccleston and Ken Baker before the break.

The two teams then started tit for tat in the second half with Rob Massam twice putting the Crusaders two tries ahead, but twice the Bears responded with tries from Lewis Taylor and Elliott Hall.

But further tries from Warren Thompson and Karl Ashall won the game for the Crusaders.
