New Earswick ARLFC made it a hat-trick of Pennine League Championship wins when they defeated Bradford side Queensbury 16-12.

Prior to the match, All Blacks paid their respects to club stalwart Dennis Harrison who passed away over the festive period.

Queensbury took the lead after nine minutes, going further ahead five minutes later with a converted try.

All Blacks narrowed the gap when centre Andy Fletcher powered over from 20 metres with half-back Adam Caddie converting.

A smart move saw substitute prop Jack Stearman power over after Caddie’s inside ball narrowed the gap to two points before half-time.

After the interval, All Blacks hit the front when prop Carl Barrow surged over from close range with Caddie converting.

The game was end to end with both sides unable to capitalise on their chances. However, the win edged All Blacks up to fifth in the table.

All Blacks man of the match was stand-off Jack Hodgson, who was backed up well by second rower Carl Smith and Stearman.
