Kyle Trout crossed for two tries and veteran Paul Sykes also claimed a touchdown – as well as critical two-pointers to keep Rams on the Raiders’ shirt-tails before and after the break.

Jarrad Stack (2) and Josh Johnson, who also landed a penalty conversion, claimed the four-pointers for the hosts, while Lewis Charnock waded in with conversion points.
