WYKE scrum half Jordan Payton continued his impressive early-season form to prime the black and whites to a sparkling 40-10 home win against Beeston Broncos in the Pennine League.

With the slope in their favour, the hosts took the game by the scruff of the neck with a piece of pure skill as Payton threaded one of his customary grubbers behind the defence to see wingman Danny Worby make the chalk.

Payton then dummied his way to the whitewash, which was followed by another corker when former Victoria Rangers debutant Oscar Woodhead sprinted over to wreak further damage before the interval.

Packmen Phil Oliver and Johnny Fawthrop were instrumental in ensuring the Wyke pack dominated the Broncos six on the restart, providing the platform for centre Calvin Barker to cross for a brace.

Another Payton effort, plus an absolute belter from hooker Sam Kittsen, ensured a seven-try haul to round off their best display of the Division Two Central campaign so far.

Clayton centre Karl Spring helped himself to a hat-trick in his side's high-scoring 54-28 success against bottom side Wakefield City at the Lidget Green Oval.

Both teams decided attack was the best form of defence as the scoreboard rotated at a frantic pace, with the Villagers adding further touchdowns from Karl Robinson, Danny Priestley, Jimmy Waddington, Devon Gurney and Simon Giles.

Centre Ryan Wilkinson also scored a brace of tries to add to his seven conversions.

Brighouse Rangers took their second big scalp of the Championship campaign with a 28-6 home win over Upton.

The Pontefract side, who have bossed the top flight for many seasons, soon found themselves behind when centre Jordan Sild crossed for the first of his two tries.

The try of the half came when half-back Ben Drennan picked out second-row forward Matt Bailey's well-timed run that saw him blast through and hand off the opposing full-back en route to the chalk.

The Rangers right-wing combination of centre Pete Lopag and wideman Joe Campbell tormented the visitors on the restart, which resulted in hooker Anton Ambler scurrying over from a Bailey offload.

Ambler returned in kind when he found Bailey for his brace and Upton's infamous reputation for indiscipline came to the fore when their scrum-half was sent off bang on the final hooter.
