Thursday night will see a potential title-decider in the Iggesund Cumberland ARL’s Premier Division.

Distington host Hensingham, looking to get back on terms at the head of the table after narrowly losing the first game between the pair.

They have dominated the league from the start and both warmed-up for Thursday’s showdown with comfortable victories on Saturday.

Hensingham had to work harder for their 44-10 win at Ellenborough but did particularly well in the second half when they produced a strong performance.

It was only 18-10 at the break but the defence tightened-up and some entertaining rugby allowed them to pull clear.

Former Workington and Barrow half-back Liam Campbell picked up another man-of-the-match award but Jack Kellett can’t have been far behind with a hat-trick of tries and six goals. Daniel Smith (2), Jay Rossi (2) and Gavin Maudling also scored tries for the visitors.

For Ellenborough, Jordan Ostle and Shane Ackerley scored tries with Owen Hoyles adding a conversion. Ryan Wilson was their man-of-the-match.

Distington beat Glasson 40-18 after they had established a handy 22-6 lead by half-time.

The Distington tries came from man-of-the-match Aiden Worthington(2), Greg Bedford (2), Jamie Friel, Nicky Cook, Stephen Conway and Liam McNicholas. There were four goals for Scott George.

Glasson scored tries through Brad Tremble (2) and Jonny Ostle with Keenan Winter kicking three goals. Chris Tomlinson was their man-of-the-match.

The first game of the weekend had been played on Friday night when Division One leaders Wath Brow A beat the bottom side Hensingham A 56-8 after leading 22-4 at half-time.

James McCartney (2), man-of-the-match Ellison Holgate (2), James McClennan (2), Jay Wetherell (2), Brandon Clark, Jack Casey and Gregg Dawson crossed for the Hornets. Sam Curwen kicked six goals.

For Hensingham A, there were tries for Alan Callendar and Daniel McGarry. Josh Rogerson was their man-of-the-match.

The two League One games on Saturday were absolute crackers with hard-earned victories for Cockermouth Titans and Lowca.

At home to Egremont A, the Titans trailed 12-6 at the break but, in an explosive second half, came back to win 32-24.

The game-breaker was Jack Clark’s hat-trick try from a short kick-off. He gathered the ball and evaded the defenders to score in the corner.

As well as his three tries, Clark also kicked four goals while the other touchdowns came from Regan Tinnion, Austin Taylor and Jamie Lightfoot.

For Egremont, there were tries from Craig McCullogh, Lee Rodgers, Dan Telford and Richard Farrer. Brandon Groggins converted two, as did Pat Bennett.

The other game between Flimby and Lowca was an absolute cracker where the lead changed no less than five times throughout.

Paul McNally’s 80th-minute try levelled the scores for the third time in the game but left Keith Campbell an easy conversion to give the game to Lowca, 40-38.

The tries for Flimby were scored by Darren Degraff, Matt Wilson, Darren Pape, Luke Baker, Danny Fidler, man-of-the-match Grant Mounsey and Connor Wilson. Ryan Frazer kicked five goals.

For Lowca, there were tries for Paul McNally (3) Aiden Pirie (2), Jacob Johnston and Emmerson Allen,

Man-of-the-match Callum Sirkett put over five goals and Keith Campbell also added one.
