WEST HULL were confirmed as Minor Premiers after a 20-10 home win over THATTO HEATH CRUSADERS.
Centres Daniel Parker and Tom Radley both touched down inside the opening 32 minutes to give the home side the advantage, and when Josh Hart improved Scott Howlett’s 37th minute effort Wests were 14-0 to the good at half-time.
Thatto – who are already guaranteed a play-off place – rallied in the opening exchanges of the second period with tries from Adam Hesketh and Chris Frodsham, with Shaun Quinn adding the extras to the first effort.
However, that proved to be the end of their comeback as Wests made the game safe when Hart improved Ian Kerman’s four-pointer just before the hour mark.
The final quarter of the game saw defences dominate meaning West Hull’s seventeenth win of the campaign made sure they would finish the regular season on top of the table.
WIGAN ST PATRICKS made sure of top-flight survival with a 34-26 win on the road at EAST LEEDS.
The sides shared 10 tries in an end-to-end contest with the goal-kicking of St Pats scrum-half Brad Smith proving the difference.
The marksman landed five conversions and two penalties compared to Easts Nathan Conroy who could only land three goals to his sides cause.
Ryan Smith (2), Aaron Forshaw, Phillip Glover and Liam Gannon were the men to cross for a St Pats side which had led 16-12 at the break.
The hosts replied with two tries and three goals from Conroy, and other efforts from Ashley Stephenson, Tom Sheldrake and Kyle Quinlan.
