Sheffield Eagles 36-18 Dewsbury Rams
Yere hat-trick sinks Dewsbury
Menzie Yere scored a hat-trick of tries as Sheffield kept pace with Kingstone Press Championship leaders Halifax with a comfortable 36-18 win at home to Dewsbury.
The Eagles were 16-0 ahead inside 22 minutes thanks to tries from Yere, Misi Taulapapa and Mitch Stringer, with Dominic Brambani adding the extras to the first two scores, although the Rams reduced the deficit to four points thanks to converted tries from Jy Mel Coleman and Karl Pryce.
Yere and Quentin Lauulu-Togagae scored either side of the break to put Sheffield 26-12 ahead, and although Makali Aizue closed the gap, James Davey's converted try and Yere's third of the night sealed victory for the hosts, who are now one point behind leaders Halifax.
