Last time out

Workington travelled the short distance to Whitehaven and recorded their third consecutive victory over their West Cumbrian rivals. Elliot Miller starred scoring a hat-rick. Jarrod Sammut and Iain Thornley also got themselves on the scoresheet.

London travelled to Dewsbury and despite being 12-0 down early on, they looked to be in pole position when Dewsbury were down to 12 men after Ryan Fieldhouse was sent off in the 20th minute.
