Wetherby RUFC rose to third in Yorkshire Four after demolishing Mosborough 33-12 on Saturday.

The Reds put on a feast of rugby in front of 72 former players celebrating the new clubhouse at Grange Park.

Wetherby wasted no time in scoring when Paul Martinski went in for an early try followed by an Alex Dus penalty.

On 15 minutes, Conor Sheridan left the visiting defenders for dead before handing on to Andy Trotman to score.

The Mosborough forwards showed their mauling ability and the home forwards had to work hard .

The home scrums were solid however but because of the greasy ball their backs were prone to mishandling whilst trying to attack.

Debutant hooker Steve Hoather then crossed over to give the Reds an 18-point half-time lead.

The hosts then increased the lead after only three minutes of the second-half when Myles Oates kicked from right to left and Trotman collected for a converted try.

The weather conditions worsened when the wind picked up accompanied by freezing rain.

Tom Edwards added a further try from Nick Oates’ neat pass as the weather turned the match into a forwards’ contest.

The visitors opened their account from a penalty try before adding another score late on.

Wetherby head to Yorkshire Three side Northallerton in the cup this Saturday.
