JACK SENIOR Bradford Cup holders Wibsey Warriors are on their way to another Odsal final appearance with a convincing 20-10 win at Clayton.

An error-strewn contest at the Lidget Green Oval saw the Warriors take full advantage of two second-half Clayton blunders to turn an evenly-balanced game in their favour.

Clayton started the game in fine style and were only denied when loose forward Simon Giles was pulled back for a forward pass after reaching the whitewash.

Wibsey opened proceedings when stand-off Brad Tattersall weaved his way through the sliding defence and Ratcliffe made no mistake with the extras.

The hosts then made full use of the favourable slope when stand-off Jack Bowman slotted a wicked grubber behind the line to allow centre Karl Spring to ground the ball with a feather-light touch.

Clayton, now with their tails up, camped themselves in the Warriors red zone but failed to make use of their possession monopoly of four sets of six count and should have added a further try, only to see hooker Luke Barnes held inches short.

Wibsey lost prop Alex Stephens to the sin bin for interfering at the ruck but they weathered the storm to finish 6-4 up at half-time.

Clayton took the lead for the first and only time when centre Ryan Wilkinson engineered a huge gap on the right flank to dive over and add the extras himself.

With the match evenly balanced at 10-6 in Clayton’s favour, Warriors wingman Joseph Newhall scampered over in the corner and centre Joe Ratcliffe slotted over the difficult conversion.

Clayton then made the cardinal error of kicking the restart directly into touch on the full and the Warriors took maximum advantage to put a towering penalty award just 10 metres from the home try-line.

Loose forward Adam Whitely was then able to sprint to the chalk for a game-changing 16-10 lead before the visitors rubbed further salt into the wounds when Ratcliffe slotted over two penalties in injury time.

Wibsey face Wyke in the Jack Senior Odsal final on Saturday, April 7 whilst Clayton meet Queensbury in the Hudson Foster Supplementary final, which is a curtain-raiser before the main event.
