Your News National League 2 North review

Westoe came from behind twice to seal a 24-13 win at newly promoted Sheffield Tigers and maintain their perfect start to the season. Outside centre Tom

Banks crossed for a brace of tries with the visitors other scores in a second bonus- point victory of the season coming from wings Peter Phelan and Gareth

Kerr.

Otherwise it was a good day for the divisions newcomers with both Bromsgrove and Stockport recording impressive victories. Bromsgrove made it two wins

from two with a 13-28 success over a Harrogate side unrecognisable from their opening day win over Leicester Lions, while Stockport sent out a real

statement of intent by beating title hopefuls Loughborough Students at the Memorial Ground. Last seasons Three North champions took the game to the

Students from the start, laying the foundations for the 27-21 win by scoring 14 unanswered points inside the first 15 minutes.

Luctonians lie in second in the nascent league table, ahead of Otley on points difference. Fly- half Will Burton and veteran No.8 Paul Hulland both crossed

the Leicester Lions line twice in a 43-14 win for the Herefordshire side, while two tries from lively full- back James Twomey proved decisive in Otleys hard-

fought 20-15 win over Hull.

Elsewhere, Preston Grasshoppers kicked off their home campaign with a 27-15 win over Caldy, Nuneaton clung on for a bonus- point win over Kendal at Liberty Way despite a late comeback from the Cumbrians and Hull Ionians edged out Huddersfield in a fiercely competitive derby.
