Sean Long made his Preston Grasshoppers debut one week earlier than anticipated and the 35- year- old wasted no time in making an immediate impression

in Rugby Union. League legend Long, playing at outside centre, crossed the Stockport line after just five minutes for the first of three tries in a 30-20 success

for ‘Hoppers. Preston’s other Sean – full- back Taylor, scored the two other tries.

Loughborough Students are still in command at the top of the table despite a below- par performance at home to Sheffield Tigers. Dave Morris’s men failed to

take maximum points, scoring just two tries against the promoted Tigers, but they still boast a five- point lead over second- placed Caldy, who were one try

shy of the four required for a bonus point in a 36-29 win over Westoe.

Luctonians had no problems crossing the whitewash, a five- try win at Otley putting them level on points with Caldy. Fourth- placed Huddersfield made it two

Yorkshire derby wins in as many weeks after storming to a 49-13 success against Harrogate – their fifth win at Lockwood Park.

The weekend’s other fixtures were all tight affairs, none more so than at Lutterworth Road where Leicester Lions and Hull shared 38 points. A late try from

scrum- half Nicholas Dangerfield was enough to earn Lions the draw that extended their unbeaten home run to five games.

Elsewhere, Billy Coxon celebrated his 400th appearance for Kendal with a 14-3 win over Bromsgrove and Nuneaton edged out fellow strugglers Hull Ionians
