York regain top spot
Ben Dent scored a hat-trick of tries as York City Knights returned to the top of the Kingstone Press Championship 1 table thanks to a 48-10 victory over South Wales Scorpions at Blackwood.
The defeat left the hosts rooted to the foot of table with one win and 11 losses in their 12 games, eight points adrift of Oxford.
Dent and Colton Roche went over with Ben Reynolds adding a goal as York raced into a 10-0 lead before Jack Pring crossed to get the Scorpions back into the game.
However, York hit back as James Ford, Dent and Jack Lee added tries before the break with another Reynolds goal making the half-time score 24-4.
Mike Connor breached the York defence seven minutes into the second half with Paul Emanuelli adding the goal but from then on it was all York.
Dent completed his hat-trick, Ford added another and James Haynes and Reynolds also crossed with Reynolds taking his goal tally to five and Ford also sending over a two-pointer.
