WIBSEY not only made it five successive wins in Yorkshire Three with their 35-12 triumph at Hemsworth but, as the match was a double-header, also booked a home tie against Ripon in the quarter-finals of the Yorkshire Vase.

In a game where both sides had more possession up the slope, Wibsey went ahead in the eighth minute, via a Kyle Carter try that was converted by Danny Belcher.

Five minutes later it was 14-0, as Ryan Smith scored a try and Belcher, playing for the first time since before Christmas due to work commitments, popped over the goal.

Rob Greenwood, Wibsey's man of the match due to his control of the pack, was sin-binned in the 37th minute for being offside at a maul, but it mattered little as the visitors scored in the first minute of the second half.

That try came via Smith again, with Belcher again adding the extras.

Hemsworth rallied with a pushover try in the 54th minute and scored a converted try 16 minutes later, immediately after Wibsey's Michael Kite was yellow carded for a high tackle.

Then, from the 71st minute to the 76th, the game was all about Wibsey winger Bruce Mpofu.

Firstly he kicked infield to no-one to spurn the chance of a try, then tried to kick the ball but missed it and fell into touch and, in a separate incident, was then tackled into touch.

All this prompted Wibsey's team manager Steve Brooke to say: "If I had a winger on the bench he would be off."

However, 30 seconds later, Mpofu scored a try after three forwards had done the donkey work.

Belcher converted that try and also that of Carter in the 80th minute, which came from a five-metre scrum near the Wibsey line.

Tim Hall, father of Harry, urged his son to boot the ball clear, but instead he passed it to Smith, who fed Carter, who ran almost the length of the field for the try.

That stunning score prompted Brooke to say to Hall senior: "That is why we are not coaches."

Wibsey, who last tasted defeat against Baildon in mid-January, remain seventh in the table but could finish as high as fourth with their games in hand.
