OTLEY remain 10th in the National Two North table after being downed 47-19 against Sedgley Park.

The away side found themselves 14-0 down early on after two tries from Oliver Glasse were followed by Stephen Collins' conversions.

Despite Henry Roberts reducing the deficit shortly after, Adam Cheshire and Jamie Harrison extended the hosts lead before the break to 23 points.

Sedgley Park added another two tries to their total through Matt Gallagher and James Harper at the beginning of the second period.

Dan Openshaw's effort was sandwiched between a couple of excellent finishes by the visitors, Adam Malthouse's touchdown before Roberts added another.

It was an afternoon dominated by the boot of Collins, who scored six out of seven attempts to couple with his side's excellent try-scoring display.

The result means Otley need to start recruiting points if they do not want to drift down the table with rivals Wharfedale hot on their tale.

The Zebras have a tough challenge next up hosting second-placed Flyde on Saturday before visiting strugglers Scunthorpe the week after.
