Full Time Report

Doncaster move one point behind leaders Rochdale

Doncaster RLFC kept the pressure on Rochdale Hornets at the top of Kingstone Press League 1 with a 32-20 win at Coventry Bears.

Brad Nicholson gave Doncaster an early lead, and although Hayden Freeman crossed for the hosts, Feka Paleaaesina and Tom Carr ensured the visitors went in at half-time 18-4 ahead.

Coventry threatened to mount a comeback when Eddie Medforth went over, but Paleaaesina grabbed his second of the afternoon just three minutes later and Sam Doherty and Jason Tali completed Doncaster's scoring either side of consolation tries from Medforth and Charlie O'Mara.
