Kurt Haggerty‘s successful penalty snatched the points with the last kick of the game.

“Not many teams have come to York this year and won.”

Premier Sports Try of the Week – Callum Phillips (Workington Town)

In-form Workington playmaker Callum Phillips finished off a flowing Town move for a crucial try in their 22-6 win over Dewsbury Rams.

Town were just six points ahead going into half-time when they broke from deep inside their own half.

Joint coach Gary Charlton said: “From our own 20, Adam Lawton fed Andy Morris to get away on the outside.

“He drew the full-back and offloaded to Lawton who was backing up. We he was caught he passed to Phillips who raced in beside the posts.”
