THE Alliance team recorded a handsome win over Rylands Sharks to maintain their place at the top end of the league.

Try scorers were Tony Doyle, three, Scott Travis, three, Todd Appleby, two, and Jordan Cartwright.

The under 18s lost narrowly in the Lancashire Cup to Thatto Heath. They entertain Pilkington on Sunday while the Ladies visit St Pats in the cup.

On Saturday, the first team host St Pats and the Alliance travel to Rochdale Mayfield.
