Dewsbury Moor Maroons face West Hull in Shield semi-final
Dewsbury Moor Maroons progressed to the National Conference Shield semi-finals without stepping out onto the pitch at the weekend.

The Maroons will now travel to play West Hull this Saturday with a place in the final against either Kells or Rochdale Mayfield up for grabs.
