Phoenix suffered a heavy defeat in their Yorkshire Two derby clash at Shaw Lane.

They were 20-13 behind at the break with right winger Jonny Stuart having kicked two penalties and converted a try from scrum half Joe Watts.

After the break wing forward Joe Horrocks pulled back a second try for the vistors.

But it was not enough as the home side ran in six tries, three in each half.
