Hull KR duo Will Dagger and Will Oakes featured for the Knights on dual-registration. The crowd was 1,399 thanks to some clever marketing by York as well as a good travelling contingent from Workington.

Dane Chisholm kicked seven goals and also crossed for a try. Papua New Guinea front-rower Wellington Albert featured for Crusaders on dual-registration from Widnes.

Hemel Stags claimed their first win of the season thanks to a 48-12 scoreline against West Wales Raiders at Stebonheath Park. The Raiders are still looking for their first win and RFL interim chief executive Ralph Rimmer was in attendance.

Newcastle Thunder claimed a crucial 30-22 victory over Whitehaven at Kingston Park. Lewis Young and Tuoyo Egodo both bagged a brace. Egodo featured for Newcastle on loan from Castleford, while Liam Cooper and Josh Eaves played for Haven on loan from St Helens.
