Doncaster Phoenix produced another dominant display to maintain their lead in Yorkshire One and make it 13 wins out of 13.

Hullensians, 11 places below them in the table at the start of play, offered little to trouble the visitors as they cruised to a 29-19 victory.

It was the home side who opened the scoring but Phoenix were soon ahead when Ryan Peacey ran through to score their first try and James Steadman added the extras.

Winger Lee Wallace scored the second Phoenix try before Steadman added a penalty to make it 15-5 to Phoenix at the break.

Further tries from Oli Rothwell and Tom Battye in the second half were enough to win the game for Doncaster and although Hullensians scored two tries late on, they never really threatened.

Wath on Dearne slipped to a 32-15 defeat at the hands of Old Brodleians in Yorkshire One, despite sitting five places above them in the table.

Wath struggled with availability with key players out through injury but the squad members that took to the field gave their all.

Number eight Jason Wignall, winger Ed Melmoth and outside centre Steve Mason all touched the ball down for tries but they were punished for their mistakes as Old Brodleians took the win.

A try scored in the last play of the game with Wath chasing points produced a final score that flattered the hosts.

Thornensians were beaten 23-18 at Old Grovians in their latest Yorkshire Three clash.

Rossington Hornets were also beaten, going down 5-22 at home against Hessle in Yorkshire Five.
