Old Rishworthians gained a losing bonus point from a game they should have won as they went down 23-18 at home to West Park Leeds.
The Copley side out-scored their Yorkshire II rivals three tries to two, but were unable to kick their goals and it was a five-minute period either side of half-time which put paid to their chances.
It ended a frustrating half for the home side, who seemed to be able to do little to please the referee and received two yellow cards and, down to 13 men, they conceded two tries either side of the break.
They home side had chances in the first half, but as the break approached they had one successful Joe Billing penalty to the visitors’ two.
They found themselves on the defensive and both flankers, Tomasi Tuivunilagi and Fraser Swarbrooke, were yellow carded.
Unable to withstand a forward drive they conceded a converted try, and soon after the restart a visiting flanker broke loose.
Rishworthians dominated the rest of the game and their forwards drove over, with Swarbrooke touching down an unconverted try.
The home side got a second unconverted try in identical fashion – No 8 James Clarke touching down.
Rishworthians were then penalised for a high tackle and a long range effort was successful.
Rishworthians were not finished and came back with forwards Frank Watene and Richard Turner powering through before the ball went wide for Billing to touch down in the corner.
In Yorkshire I there was a setback for Old Brodleians as they were beaten 31-22 at home by Doncaster Phoenix.
