Keighley ruin Coventry\'s big day by beating them on Ricoh Arena debut

Keighley Cougars stayed in touch with the Kingstone Press League 1 pace-setters as they beat Coventry Bears 36-16 in the first rugby league match staged at the Ricoh Arena.

Tries from Adam Brook, Vinny Finigan and Charlie Martin gave Keighley a 14-4 half-time lead as James Geurtjens crossed for the hosts.

Ross Peltier scored a second-half brace and although Grant Beecham and Liam Thompson briefly got the home side within four points, Brendon Rawlins sent Paul White over following a 40-metre break and Hamish Barnes added some late gloss to the score.
