SSE National Two North leaders Stourbridge turned to their forward power to mount a comeback against Preston Grasshoppers and keep their title hopes on track. Hoppers led by 17 points to 10 at half-time, but two second-half penalty tries and a 69th-minute effort from Sam Baker saw the Saxons to a 32-22 home victory.

Second-placed Hull Ionians are five points off the pace but with a game in hand after grinding out a 17-11 win at Leicester Lions.

A hat-trick from Sheffield Tigers Jamie Broadley helped end Darlington Mowden Parks fine run of form at the Northern Echo Arena. Broadleys treble added to a first-half penalty try and 11 points from the boot of Tom Outram saw the Tigers win 31-28.

Dudley Kingswinford opened up an eight-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone after a timely 14-12 win at Luctonians. Centre Gareth Bown struck three penalties to add to a try from flanker Joe Carpenter.

Westoes chances of avoiding the drop suffered a setback after they went down to a 33-24 defeat at the hands of Otley in west Yorkshire. Winger James Twomey scored two of Otleys five tries to take his tally for the season to 23 one behind the divisions top finisher Drew Cheshire.

Stockport are all but certain of an immediate return to National Three following a 37-25 loss away to Hull. Hull scored tries through flanker Anthony Maka (2), James Wigglesworth, Jamie Clarke and Dan White.

Richard Mahony racked up 18 points in a 43-5 win for Bromsgrove over bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield. The victory puts the Midlands club level on points in mid-table with Caldy who lost at home to Birmingham & Solihull. The Bees scored five tries inside the first 46 minutes to lead by 20 points. But Caldy rallied in the final quarter to score two tries and take a losing bonus point from the fixture, which ended 36-30 to the Bees.
