Your News National League 2 North review

Bottom- of- the- table Hull Ionians pulled off the biggest shock in National Two North at the weekend with a 29-18 win at Preston Grasshoppers. ‘Hoppers,

who handed Rugby League legend Shaun Long his home league debut, boasted a 100 per cent record at Lightfoot Green before the game, but they could

have no complaints about the end result after falling well short of their usual standards.

Harrogate came close to producing an upset of their own at home to league leaders, Loughborough Students. ‘Gate trailed 16-0 after half an hour but they

battled back magnificently to earn a well- deserved bonus point from the game, which ended 24-17 to the visitors. Caldy stay second in the table after a hard-

fought 29-19 win away to Sheffield Tigers.

Huddersfield leapfrog Luctonians into third thanks to an impressive 28-9 win over the Herefordshire outfit. Skipper Nick Sharpe weighed in with two of his

side’s four tries, all of which were converted by the deadly boot of fly- half Chris Johnson, as ‘Field shrugged off the handicap of two yellow cards to come

home with the points.

Westoe recorded the biggest win of the day and moved up one place in the table to fifth as a result of their 40-9 victory over Kendal. Elsewhere, there were

home wins for Hull, Nuneaton and Bromsgrove, who edged out Leicester Lions. James Curgenven’s secured the narrowest of victories for Bromsgrove with a

last- minute penalty to settle an edgy Midlands derby.
