NESTLE Rowntree RUFC notched their first Yorkshire Four win in four attempts as they beat bottom side Sheffield Oaks 29-26 - thanks to a remarkable last-minute try.

Trees pressed straight from the kick off and, after just three minutes, had their first points on the board through hooker Ryan Roodt who crashed over following a five-metre lineout.

However, complacency seemed to set in and Oaks pressure around the 10-minute mark yielded reward as they drove forward and notched a converted try.

Nestle centre Zak Hardy crashed over after 20 minutes, and Dave Harder added the extras, but again Oaks came back, feeding off the possession Trees gifted them, and levelled at 12-12.

From the restart, Oaks conceded a penalty that Harder converted before Oaks' scrum-half showed his ability, running upfield and recycling the ball for a converted try to see Oaks go into the break 19-15 up.

Although Trees saw a lot of the ball in the second half, they failed to put much together meaning that - combined with unnecessary infringements - the Oaks line remained untroubled until the 78th minute when Stuart Dickinson raced in at the corner following good passing. Harder converted from the touchline.

Incredibly, Trees kept possession for a further seven minutes and an inside ball allowed centre Dave Straker to race in and Harder to convert.

Elsewhere in the division, York RI sit third after gaining their fifth win on the bounce with a 13-11 victory at Stocksbridge.

Stocksbridge - for whom that was their fifth defeat on the trot - are the visitors to Nestle Rowntree on Saturday, while RI host sixth-placed Stanley Rodilians.
