THORNHILL Trojans remain within a point of early pace-setters Hunslet Club Parkside in National Conference League Division Two following an easy 36-4 win over Leigh East at Overthorpe Park.
Leigh were unbeaten before the clash but tries from Jake Wilson and Danny Ratcliffe, plus two Andrew Bates goals made sure that stat was in jeopardy.
Further tries from Anthony Harris and Danny Ratcliffe in addition to Sam Ratcliffe’s two goals gave the hosts a 20-point cushion at the interval.

Easts battled hard but weren’t helped by the yellow card shown to Lee Rowley for dissent.
