Featherstone beat rivals Sheffield
CHAMPIONSHIP: Featherstone Rovers cruised to a 40-6 defeat of Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Eagles on Saturday.
Two tries each for Anthony Thackeray, Ian Hardman and Josh Hardcastle – plus a touchdown for Luke Briscoe – saw Rovers to a comfortable win.
Hardman also chipped in with six goals.
All Sheffield had to offer in response was a Shaun Pick try, converted by Cory Aston.
Yesterday, Dewsbury Rams slipped to a 58-12 home defeat to Leigh Centurions. Tries in each half from Aaron Brown and Robbie Ward were all Dewsbury could muster – both goaled by Paul Sykes – as Leigh replied with 10 touchdowns.
