STANNINGLEY ARE guaranteed a place in the National Conference Division One play-offs after snatching an 8-8 draw at Myton Warriors.

Liam Copland booted a penalty goal in the final seconds to salvage a point and guarantee the Leeds side – promoted last year – a top-six finish. Niall Murphy scored Stanningley’s try, converted by Copland.

Stanningley’s Jamaine Ruan was sin-binned in the first half for an alleged crusher tackle.

Milford, who will also be in the play-offs, crushed already-relegated Dewsbury Moor 56-6.

Jake Payne, Steve Bacon and Sam Nicholl all bagged a brace for Milford, Mark Judge, Martin Loveridge, Josh Cawood and Mark Brocksom were the other try scorers and Loveridge kicked eight goals.

Oulton Raiders led 12-0 at home to title-chasing Featherstone Lions, but were beaten 31-18.

Adrian Holdsworth crossed either side of a touchdown by Thomas Langton and Kieron Walpole added three goals.

East Leeds are facing almost certain relegation from Division Two after a 52-10 defeat at Bradford Dudley Hill.

Easts, who had Tom Howson sin-binned in the first half, were 42-0 down before Luke Mullen and Anthony Ward scored their tries, the latter adding a conversion.

Easts are two points behind fourth-bottom Clock Face Miners, their only remaining opponents, who have a game in hand and a better for and against.

Division Three leaders Hunslet Warriors maintained their title push with a 28-12 win over Dewsbury Celtic, who had only 16 players.

In the Premier Division, Hunslet Club Parkside hit back from 14-0 behind to win 30-18 at Leigh Miners. Omar Alrawi and Connor Squires both touched down twice, Ben Shulver and Craig McShane got the others and Danny Rowse landed three goals.

Relegation-threatened Thornhill Trojans ended a six-game losing run with an 18-14 success at Lock Lane.
