Man of the match: Ben Cockayne – York’s first three tries which put them into a winning position all came from the stand-off’s attacking work.

Referee: Greg Dolan (Batley) – with no Super League fixtures this weekend, the full-time official dropped down to League One... but it didn’t seem like an elite performance.

Penalty count: 10-9

Half-time: 12-0

Weather: hot again.

Attendance: 981

Moment of the match: Crusaders looked sure to score a consolation try after breaking away down the inside left with only full-back Matt Chilton to beat, but Joe Batchelor turned on the afterburners as he chased back to not only haul down the pass receiver and likely try-scorer but force the ball to be fumbled. The clean sheet was duly kept intact before the Knights went up the other end to score their fifth try.

Gaffe of the match: York’s completion rate wasn’t the greatest.

Gamebreaker: North Wales never really looked liked threatening York’s early lead and, when their only try was ruled out on the hour mark with the Knights 24-0 ahead, any hopes of a comeback ended.

Match rating: the Knights have been involved in some crackers this season – this wasn’t one of them. Without the ball, the home team excelled, but with it they were scratchy.
