Official Match Report

Whitehaven enjoy fine win

Whitehaven turned the Kingstone Press Championship table upside down with a 23-16 win at Dewsbury.

England youth international Jordan Burns scored two first-half tries to help the Cumbrians climb off the foot of the table and inflict the first defeat of the campaign on the high-flying Rams.

Former Wigan and Bradford winger Shaun Ainscough and ex-Warrington second rower Lee Mitchell also scored tries for Whitehaven as they led 20-4 at the break.

Dewsbury threatened a comeback when Dale Morton and Aaron Brown scored second-half tries, to add to Greg Scott's only first-half score, but Cain Southernwood clinched the visitors' first win of the season with a drop goal, to add to his two conversions and a penalty.
