WYKE, who had a Pennine League Division Two Central encounter postponed two weekends ago at home to Eastmoor Dragons because a visitor had mud in his eyes, have had another game cut short.

They were trailing 30-4 in a fiery clash at Woodhouse Warriors when the referee abandoned the match an hour in after the latest of several brawls.

Wyke had all the early pressure but couldn’t capitalise against a solid defence.

Woodhouse then hit the front with two tries in as many minutes after some weak defence out wide from the visitors.

The visitors hit back but a loose carry by Brett Gray after taking a high ball meant that his effort was disallowed.

Sam Kittsen then had an effort ruled out for being held up, despite the referee’s initial decision to award a try.

Woodhouse scored again down Wyke’s right flank but Danny Worby responded for the Bradford outfit by finishing off a fine sweeping move.

On the restart, three separate altercations broke out, causing the referee to warn the Leeds outfit that any further issues would result in the game being abandoned.

Wyke struggled with a number of blood injuries and Woodhouse capitalised fully by extending their lead.

But when a further fracas broke out, the referee decided that he had seen enough and the game was abandoned with 20 minutes still to play.

* The draw for the Jack Senior Memorial Bradford Cup has been made and, as always, there are some mouth-watering games to look forward to.

Odsal Sedbergh take on Queensbury, while Wibsey entertain Birkenshaw.

Wyke and Clayton have received byes.
