Doncaster Mustangs remain undefeated after a comfortable 28-6 derby win at Yorkshire Rams.

Jeremiah Jordan raced 84 yards to score the opening touchdown, with Rob Mills adding the extra point to give Doncaster a 7-0 lead at the end of a tight first half.

Graham Lightfoot found Martyn Lee in the corner for a second score and Mills again did the honours.

A couple of missed tackles allowed Adim Irozuru to reduce the deficit for the hosts.

But the Mustangs stretched their lead in the final quarter, full back Tom Moxon rumbling into the endzone, with Jordan adding an extra two.

Lightfoot then fired a bullet to rookie receiver James Myers to seal a comprehensive win.

Mustangs sit top of Premier Division North with three wins out of three.

Their next game is at home to Birmingham Bulls on May 12 at Wheatley Hills RUFC (kick-off 2.30pm).
