Official Match Report

Roche seals top spot for Knights

Colton Roche went over late on as York came from behind to beat Hunslet 20-18 and ensure they will finish top of Kingstone Press Championship 1.

Former Leeds hooker Liam Hood gave Hunslet a 34th-minute lead, only for James Ford to level matters on the stroke of half-time and James Haynes to edge the Knights ahead with a penalty.

Richard Moore, who only joined the Hawks this week, and Thomas Coyle crossed in quick succession to give the hosts an 18-8 lead heading into the closing stages.

But the Knights were not to be denied, James Saltonstall and Roche touching down to secure a memorable victory.
