Dewsbury Moor’s newly formed Under-18s produced a fine display in only their third game, as they recorded an impressive 56-10 victory over Myton.

After a narrow defeat to Hunslet in their first game and a 19-18 win over Hull Wyke the previous week, Moor showed how well the team are gelling.

After conceding an early try, Moor dominated and Diskin put Jake Butterfield through a gap to equalise.

Strong running from forwards Walker, Cooper, Brooks and Watson helped Moor gain field position and Connor Barraclough was tackled just short but from the next play Matty Race dived over for the first of his four tries.

Hartley and Burland produced good runs and, from a set piece, Diskin put Scriven through to score.

Coaches MoM Alex Hirst then sent Race over for his second try just before half-time.

Moor continued to control the game after the break with Dawson, O’Neill and Lappage making a big impact from the bench.

Hirst scored at the side of the posts and Barraclough then produced a fine dummy and step to race over for an individual try.

Opposition MoM Jackson Walker put Burland through a tiring Myton defence for a try between the posts, while further scores from Hirst and two more from Race sealed the impressive win in a fine all-round performance.

Shaw Cross Sharks Under-10s switched their game to Oulton as their own pitches were unfit and it proved another close, competitive match.

Opposition MoM was awarded to Bailey Woods, parents player went to Seb Jeffers, the coaches award for defence went to Liam Littlewood, coaches award for the all-round performance was given to Teddy Dawson, while most improved went to Finlay Gaal.

Great support and team work came from Isaac Redgwick, Ellis Peake, Harvey Cavanagh, Max Tune, Alfie Law, Charlie Tilford, Casey Hirst, Edan Gleadhill, Francis Appleyard, Ethan Brereton and Karsten Glover.

The young Sharks travel to Castleford Panthers this Saturday.

Birstall Victoria Under-10s welcomed Normanton Knights to White Lee last Saturday and both sides produced some impressive rugby despite the heavy ground.

Joint opposition MoM winners William Wilkinson and Harrison Stevens worked tirelessly.

Stevens led his team around the field from acting half-back and was a constant threat, while Wilkinson made good yards and produced an impressive 23 tackles to top the count and he also scooped parents player of the match.

Coaches MoM Cameron Charles broke his scoring duck with two tries from the wing.

Coby Doyle, Caleb Rhodes and Harley Trapps drove the Vic forward, while fellow forwards Jack Pickles and Max Grinhaff also made good ground and were both rewarded for their efforts with tries.

Alfie Davison, Alfie Watson and Archie Walker helped keep the opposition chances to a minimum, while Harley Aston was a threat with the ball in hand and produced some dangerous kicks in an entertaining encounter.
