City Knights stun Rovers

York pulled off an upset in the Kingstone Press Championship with a 24-16 win over title favourites Featherstone.

Rovers, who began the season with six straight wins, never recovered from the shock of conceding three tries in the first 22 minutes as they slipped to back-to-back defeats.

Former Rovers three-quarter Nat Browne was the City Knights\' hero with two tries on his debut, while York\'s other tries came from Matt Nicholson and Kristian Brining.

Ben Hellewell, Greg Worthington and Andy Bostock scored tries for the visitors.
