Dual-Registration & Loan Recap

A quick report on which of our St.Helens players have been out on dual-registration or loan this past weekend (1st & 2nd June).

Seven of our Saints were on duty for other clubs on the weekend just gone, so here is your recap on what they got up to…

Featherstone Rovers 40-42 Swinton Lions
Tee Ritson, Leon Cowen, and Jonny Vaughan

An incredible match that kept swinging either way with the Lions ultimately getting their first victory over Fev at Post Office Road since 2006. Ritson & Cowen both started with Tee on the wing and Leon starting at prop, with Vaughan coming off the bench into the back-row.

Ritson helped set up two of Swinton’s score, whilst Cowen showed no fear in his first senior match at that level and for the Lions too.

In the final twenty minutes of the match, Swinton scored three successive tries to regain the lead but it would be short lived with Connor Jones getting an equalising four-pointer. In the final five, the Lions were awarded a penalty which Dec Patton slotted over and the Lions held out to get a huge win.

York Knights 18-22 Widnes Vikings
Brett Bailey

A closely fought contest, in which Brett Bailey made his debut for the Vikings after it was confirmed on Friday afternoon he has joined the Betfred Championship side on an initial two-week loan.

Brett had spent April & May on loan at Cumbrian side Whitehaven, playing six times, scoring once.

For his debut with Widnes he came off the bench and helped them register a great comeback win. In the final ten minutes the Knights led 18-10 but then Kieran Dixon & Mike Butt grabbed scores in either corner, and Tom Gilmore came up with two clutch, match-sealing conversions to get the victory.

North Wales Crusaders 24-25 Oldham
Ben Lane and Jake Burns

Another tight affair in which the Crusaders unfortunately let slip.

Lane started at fullback, whilst Burns began the fixture at hooker, with Ben slotting over four conversions from four attempts.

Three late tries though from the Roughyeds and a dramatic final minute drop-goal from Danny Craven spoilt the party at Colwyn Bay to keep up pace with Keighley at the top of the Betfred League One table.
