A SUPERB second-half team effort saw Heworth ARLC complete the double over close rivals Hunslet Warriors with a great 25-12 victory in National Conference League division three clash.

Hunslet edged the first half 8-6 despite the Villagers taking an early lead when stand-off Ben Dyson-Dent crashed over for George Elliott to add the extras.

The hosts retaliated with a touchdown from full-back Josh Mclelland, who went over under the sticks for Jordan Gale to convert and then add a penalty goal on the stroke of half-time for a narrow lead.

Showing great determination, Heworth defended their line well and worked their way up the field for Joe Deighton to power over for a good try, goaled by Dyson-Dent.

The Warriors hit back to level matters with a try from winger Nathan Clapham.

However, Heworth hit back in fine style with three unconverted tries from Elliott (2) and James Morland.

A last minute drop goal was added by the Villagers' man of the match Elliott.

The win over second-placed Hunslety Warriors leaves Heworth fourth in the table, four points behind leaders Woolston Rovers.

In the Yorkshire Men's League premier division, New Earswick All Blacks were beaten 26-12 at home by Siddal Academy.
