HUDDERSFIELD Ladies rugby league team are on the up after landing a new main sponsor.

The Slaithwaite-based side are being backed for the rest of the season by Elland-based haulage company RL Distribution Ltd.

The Lowfields Industrial estate business have stepped forward to replace the ladies well-worn kit, and helped provide a massive on-field boost in the process.

They immediately celebrated their new-look by securing a 28-22 triumph at Ovenden.

Tries were scored by Beth Neilson, Carly Crowther, Laura Dyson, Shelly Thomas and Cara Sutcliffe, with conversions added by Anna Simpson and Neilson.

It was a result which maintained Huddersfield’s fifth-placed spot in the Women’s ARLA Winter League, we are currently 5th in the table ahead of their trip to Leigh East.
