ON a scorching Saturday afternoon at Horsfall, it was West Bowling who took bragging rights, as they managed to defeat great rivals Bradford Dudley Hill 32-18 in Group F of the National Conference League.

There were six different try scorers for hosts Bowling, with Ryan Smith, Nicholas Fontaine, Liam Darville, Daniel Halmshaw, Christopher Anderson and Jack Milburn all crossing the line.

Harry Williams managed four goals to add to their tally too.

Dudley Hill hit back with tries from Kyle Bateman, Kyle Carter and William Woodhead, while there were goals from Simon Sewell (2) and Callum Bacon.

The victory means Bowling have won both of their first two matches, and are second behind Thornhill Trojans.

Defeat brought Dudley Hill back down to earth after their superb win over Underbank Rangers the previous weekend, and they now sit third.

It was not just about the result of course, with the Lee Hunter Memorial Day taking place at Horsfall.

There were games throughout the day before the main event, special guests, entertainment, a raffle, and the auctioning off of rugby league shirts.

Raising money for the British Heart Foundation in Hunter's memory, Bowling raised over £6,000, while Dudley Hill's players helped out with a sizeable donation too.

Elsewhere in Group F over the weekend, Underbank bounced back from that defeat to Dudley Hill by beating visiting Bradford District side Drighlington 26-18.

Steven Meldrum went over for a brace, while Sam Thornton and John Gallagher also crossed for the visitors, but their efforts proved to be in vain.

It is is two defeats from two for Drig, who lost their opener to Thornhill the previous weekend too.
