Darren Robinson’s try, shortly after, increased the away side’s advantage to 12 points as Holmes tagged on the extras.

Wyke then bagged their only try of the game as Ash Hutchinson crashed over from close range.

On the stroke of half time, Trojans captain Jake Wilson was sinbinned for dissent after being summoned by the referee.

However after the break, Thornhill hit championshipwinning form and completed victory with tries from Sam Ratcliffe, Wilson (2), Liam Morley and Robinson.
