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 Park’s fine run of form at the Northern Echo Arena. Broadley’s 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.

Westoe’s 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 Otley’s five tries to take his tally for the season to 23 – one behind the division’s 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.
