Pennine League 11-a-side Division: Worth Village 24 Methley Royals 14

WORTH won their first home game since making the switch to the new 11-a-side division.

Royals started well, scoring within the first few minutes, but Village were not disheartened and came back with some great running by Steven Woodhead and Richard Lundy, who was playing his first game of rugby league.

Worth kept the pressure as Jake Feather was held up over the line. The hosts put together a great set play to get near the line before Steven Duffy stormed his way over from acting half to level the score.

Anthony McNulty turned on the speed to get close to the whitewash for Feather to finally cross for a try, putting Worth in front.

Methley came back with some strong running but Jason Barnes picked up an interception and ran 80 metres, leaving Methley stood watching to score under the post as Village finished the first half 18-4 up.

The second period was largely an even contest until man of the match Quinton Sneyd came from nowhere to score near the line.

This didn't stop Royals replying with two tries close to the line in the last five minutes.

Village host Castleford's Lock Lane on Saturday (2pm).
