WEST Bowling seem to be benefitting from their licence to thrill.

They were drawing 18-18 at Hunslet Warriors in Kingstone Press National Conference League Division Two only to run in four tries in the final 15 minutes to triumph 38-18 as the ninth and tenth-placed teams swapped places.

Delighted that his charges had stuck to the game-plan, Bowling coach Ryan Hunkin said: "We want the forwards, the middles, to play with more freedom and ask different questions, and not just engage in a physical battle.

"Also we looked after the ball a bit better, and that gave us more energy late on when we scored those tries."

Olly Bartle, Chris Watson, Chris Anderson and Jack Milburn were at the heart of the visitors' excellent display, and Hunkin added: "Chris Watson got the chance to start, and took it with both hands, while Ollie mixed up the physical battle with skill so that the opposition did not know what he was going to do."

Bartle, Jake Green and Richard Lumb scored first-half tries for Bowling, with three Liam Coe conversions giving them an 18-14 interval lead, and Liam Darville, Ben Heald, Green and Adam Reardon finished off the Warriors with those late tries, two of which were converted by Coe.

Ninth-placed Drighlington were outscored by four tries to three but still won 22-20 at home to second-placed Dewsbury Moor Maroons.

Tom Moorby (2) and Andrew Kilbride crossed the whitewash for Drig, whose goals came from Michael Sanderson (4) and Moorby.

Leaders Stanningley ran in nine tries in a 50-16 home romp against Hull Dockers, with Liam Copland and Jack Sykes bagging braces.

In Division One, Bradford Dudley Hill's task at Shaw Cross Sharks became infinitely harder after second-row forward Elliot Cousins was sent off for a head butt.

Hill didn't really play in the first half and only managed an Aiden Batey try that was improved by Simon Sewell in the last minute.

The Shaun Squires-inspired Sharks had already scored 24 points by that time and went on to win 36-18, although Hill shared the second half 12-12.

Kyle Bateman and Seb Russo scored tries in the 59th and 80th minutes, both of which were added to by Sewell.

"We knew how dangerous Shaun would be as he has been at Dewsbury Rams and Batley Bulldogs in recent seasons," said Hill's first-team manager Steve Wright.

Squires scored 20 points from two tries and six goals.

Birkenshaw Bluedogs, perhaps given energy by their gala in memory of player Max Blakeley, handed leaders Dewsbury Celtic their first defeat of the season in Yorkshire Men's League Division Five.
