Huddersfield march on

Ben Cooper scored four tries for Huddersfield
Northern Ford Premiership leaders Huddersfield cruised to their 25th win of the season on Sunday with a 42-4 victory over Dewsbury at the McAlpine Stadium.

But the Giants suffered a blow ahead of the play-off semi-finals with the loss of full-back Paul Reilly with a broken ankle.

Centre Ben Cooper led the way for the Giants with four tries.

Marcus St Hilaire also grabbed two tries in his second game for Huddersfield since leaving Leeds.

The heavy defeat leaves the Rams in tenth spot on points difference behind Oldham, who did not play on Sunday.

Second-placed Leigh overcame the sending-off of captain Adam Bristow to chalk up an 11th consecutive win with a 60-14 success against Swinton at Hilton Park.

The Centurions ran 11 tries past the struggling Lions, with Andy Isherwood crossing for a hat-trick.

Matt Long scored a late winner as third-placed Rochdale snatched a thrilling 40-36 win over play-off rivals Doncaster.

In a dramatic climax to the game, the Dragons finally looked to have claimed victory when Dean Colton went over and Jonny Woodcock converted in the last minute.

But Long's second touchdown in injury time won the match for the Hornets.

Three tries in eight minutes either side of the break proved enough for Workington as they secured a hard-fought 24-18 win at Keighley.

Late tries from Danny Fearon and Olly Wilkes brought Keighley back into the game but Town held on to win with scores from Hitro Oksene, Carl Sice, Gary Charlton and Stuart Hoyles.

Jamie Rooney set a new Featherstone record as he took his season's points tally to 396 with 21 more in his side's 45-20 success over Barrow.

Richard Newlove also impressed with two brilliant long-range tries in a dominant Rovers display.

Whitehaven Warriors enjoyed a 52-25 home victory over Chorley, despite a Sarfraz Patel goal in the first minute.

Aaron Lester ran in a first-half hat-trick to put the result beyond doubt.

Alastair McClaren scored two touchdowns as Hull KR outplayed Hunslet 34-12 at South Leeds Stadium.

Bottom side Gateshead crashed to a 52-18 loss at Batley.

Long-serving Bulldogs stand-off Glen Tomlinson scored a hat-trick to move within one of setting a new club try-scoring record.
