NOT for the first time this season, ill discipline contributed to a defeat for Bradford Dudley Hill.

They led 20-16 at half-time at home to leaders Thornhill Trojans in Kingstone Press National Conference League Division One but suffered four sin-binnings in the second half as they were beaten 52-22.

Neil Wall saw yellow twice – once for persistent abuse and once for foul and abusive language – and Ryan Dickinson joined him in having ten minutes, also for persistent abuse.

Trojans, meanwhile, had Martyn Holland sin-binned in the second half, also for foul and abusive language.

Tries by Elliot Cousins, Martin Southwell, Wall and Lewis Evans, plus two goals from Simon Sewell, had given basement boys Dudley Hill hopes of an upset win.

But the shortage of players on another hot day eventually told, as did Hill's inability to cope with interchange and man of the match Zach Johnson.

There was no joy either for West Bowling, who are second from bottom in Division Two and went down 44-10 at fourth-placed East Leeds.

"We got a bit of our attitude back," admitted new Bowling coach Ryan Hunkin, who has replaced Glenn Barraclough, "but if this match had been played in winter it would have been called off as the ground was so hard."

Leaders Stanningley beat bottom-of-the-table Leigh East 44-18, courtesy of try braces by Dean Parker, Jack Sykes and Adam Benn, plus singles from Jordan Walker, Stephen Welton and Callum Smithson, with Welton (2) and Smithson (2) adding goals.

Ninth-placed Drighlington also made home advantage count, defeating Askam 40-16, with Gary Smith (2), Daniel Cahill, Jake Dearden, Daniel Sanderson, Ryan Burton and Andrew Kilbride crossing the whitewash.

In the Yorkshire Men's League, Odsal Sedbergh beat leaders and visitors King Cross Park 36-14 in Division Two, but Halifax got their revenge when Boothtown Terriers triumphed 38-12 at Wibsey Warriors.

Brighouse Rangers made it six wins out of six in Division Three by putting 40 points past cellar dwellers Birstall Victoria without reply.

Jordan Sild cashed in with four tries, and Lewis Taylor, Callum Heseltine and Mathew Bailey also made the chalk, with the reliable Karl Frankland adding six goals.
