Joel James slots over late penalty to claim win for Coventry

Joel James\' last-gasp penalty snatched Coventry Bears a 30-28 victory over North Wales Crusaders in the Kingstone Press League 1 Shield.

The home side were leading 18-12 at half-time but the Bears pulled level shortly after the restart.

They then took the lead as Jamahl Hunte ran the length of the field to score but a missed conversion allowed Crusaders to regain the advantage at 24-22 before another try stretched their lead to six points.

However, Richie Hughes\' try and a successful conversion tied the game before James\' 35-yard penalty stole the win for the Bears.
