LOCK LANE bounced back from 18-6 down against Leigh Miners shortly before half-time to win 30-22 in their Division One game in the National Conference.

The Castleford side built on Craig Jones’ opener with tries for Tom Sowerby, Craig Savage, Luke Tagg and Adam Rothwell after the break when they turned the tables in great style.

Connor Land was successful with five goals from as many attempts to help Lock Lane make it three wins from five matches so far in the Conference this season.

The Miners, who had led through a try and three goals by Josh Ward, with Todd Fenlon and Joe Digby also crossing, had to settle for a late consolation try thereafter by Ward, who had spent a spell in the sin-bin for dissent.

The win moved Lock Lane up to fifth place in the table and they will be looking to build on that this Saturday at home to Ince Rose Bridge.

Featherstone Lions’ scheduled Division One game at home to Skirlaugh was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

They slipped down a place to third with the inactivity, but have a game in hand on the two teams above them, Milford Marlins and Thornhill Trojans.

After the better weather this week the Lions will be hoping their pitch has recovered as they are due to host Oulton Raiders this Saturday.
