Craig McShane and Jack McShane added tries in the first 14 minutes of the second half, with Andy Hullock and Fields each adding a conversion, but Warriors held firm after that and scored the game’s final touchdown, through Jake Corney.

East Leeds also kept a clean sheet in the first half, James Duckworth - who has five Super League appearances to his name, for Leeds Rhinos and London Broncos - and Luke Littlewood, who also converted, touching down to make it 10-0.

Andy Djeukessi and Shane Plunkett added tries in the second half, either side of Milford’s lone reply by Dwaine McRae.

Easts’ final score was created by Jack Norfolk, who is back at his junior club after a stint in Betfred League One with Hunslet.

Hunslet Warriors are at home to Milford on Thursday evening.

Oulton Raiders gave a better account of themselves against visitors Siddal than that the 30-6 final scoreline suggests.

The Leeds side trailed the unbeaten pacesetters 12-6 at half-time, Declan Storey crossing and Keiran Walpole adding the extras.

League F’s bottom club Drighlington showed signs of finding some form, despite their 16-8 defeat at Bradford Dudley Hill.

Jake Barnes and Callum Rudd scored Drighlington’s tries.

Stanningley’s cross-league fixture at home to Shaw Cross Sharks was postponed because of concerns over the coronavirus rate in Kirklees.

Thornhill Trojans’ League F fixture at Featherstone Lions was called off for the same reason.
