West Hull end Knights' run | NCL round-up

By Ryan Booth

Last weekend provided another round of shocks and dramas across the four tiers of the NCL - here we take a look at how teams got on this time around.

Premier Division | West Hull 34-0 Normanton Knights

West Hull continued their fine form after condemning Normanton Knights to their first defeat of the season.

The hosts headed into the game after pushing table toppers Hunslet Club Parkside to the limit seven days prior.

Jack Watts' treble alongside further scores from Nathan Hill, Josh Nicklin, Louis Crowther and Raymond Brown ensured Wests ran out deserved 34-0 winners at West Hull Community Park.

Ryan Wilson claimed two goals whilst Scott Partis added a further two points to cap off a fine all-round display.

Division 1 | Featherstone Lions 43-26 Oulton Raiders

Jake Perkins claimed an exquisite double as Featherstone Lions leapfrogged Oulton Raiders to cruise into joint-first in the NCL Division 1 table.

Alongside Perkins’ brace, Ian Jackson, Richard Williams, Ben Mawson, Daniel Glassell and James Beckett all got themselves on the scoresheet to secure a 43-26 victory - Jackson also added six goals and a drop goal.

The Raiders responded with tries from Adrian Holdsworth, Halam Day, Joshua Murray, Lawrence Dibb and Thomas Lunn along with a trio of goals from Jordan Gale but the Lions hung on to claim a crucial two points.

Division 2 | Stanningley 22-6 East Leeds

Stanningley prolonged their lead at the top of the Division 2 table after a comfortable 22-6 triumph over East Leeds at the Arthur Miller Stadium.


Jordan Walker’s double alongside scores from Benjamin Selby and Dean Parker ensured the high-flying hosts emerged victorious - Liam Copland added three goals to cap of a fine afternoon for Stanningley.

Jack Norfolk replied with a late consolation for the visitors but that was about as good as it got for the visitors.


Division 3 | Salford City Roosters 28-27 Waterhead Warriors

Salford City Roosters clinched the points from the hands of Waterhead Warriors in what proved to be the most dramatic fixture across the NCL this weekend.

17-year-old Kegan Brennan shone for the Warriors, the youngster claimed a try, three goals and a late drop goal in what was a truly stunning individual performance.


Scott Owen, Jamie Mayall and Sean Garrett also crossed for the visitors but Salford responded with a hat-trick from Damola Lowo and further tries from Paul Morgan and Andrew Muscat to set up a tense finish.

Morgan then landed the last of four goals with the last kick of the game to snatch a dramatic victory for the Roosters - much to the amazement of the Waterhead players and supporters alike.
