West Bowling are this week's rugby-league.com Club of the Week, after they were crowned champions of Yorkshire on Saturday.
A stunning debut season in the Yorkshire Men's League saw the Bradford club finish top of the Premier Division, before they saw off Beverley, who are coached by 2016 First Utility Super League Dream Team member Scott Taylor, 36-14 in the semi-final.
That set up a Final clash with Doncaster Toll Bar, who finished second in the league, at Featherstone Rovers' Big Fellas Stadium over the weekend.
Though Shaun Roberts bagged all of Toll Bar's points, including a hat trick and three goals, Bowling full back Max Trueman notched a treble of his own to help the Lidget Green side to a 26-18 win.
Liam Coe rounded off the scoring with an interception try and five goals, including this impressive effort…
Then the celebrations could begin!
And congratulations came in from across Rugby League… including Bradford Bulls-bound Leon Pryce
