Leeds ease past Cas and Fev

The Leeds & District ARL side, beaten heavily at Wakefield eight days earlier, blasted the Inter-Town championship wide open with a 46-12 victory yesterday (Sunday) over Castleford & Featherstone at Stanningley.

Tony Swift of Hunslet Warriors grabbed a hat trick in the victory, while Ste Parnell (East Leeds) scored a try and a goal.

Johnny Winter (Queens), Steve Mead (Milford), Lee Fisher (East Leeds), James Brown (Queens) and Craig Green (West Leeds) also touched down, and Aaron Henry (Queens) and Stu Halliday (Stanningley) landed a couple of goals apiece.

Castleford Panthers duo Andy Tillett and Sean Goodway replied for the visitors, while Jimmy Clarkson of Olde Church Tavern landed a conversion and a penalty.

All three teams in the competition have now won one of their two games; Castleford & Featherstone travel to Sharlston on Saturday (June 28) when they face Wakefield in the first of the second raft of fixtures.
