Cougars too strong for Thunder

Keighley Cougars kept pace with Oldham at the top of the Kingstone Press League 1 table after beating Newcastle Thunder 28-10.

Andy Gabriel opened the scoring with a 14th-minute try that was converted by Danny Lawton but just four minutes later Evan Simons crossed for Newcastle.

Liam Darville claimed the Cougars' second try of the afternoon five minutes before half-time and Lawton's goal made the interval score 12-4.

Adam Brook went in 10 minutes into the second half and Lawton's third goal gave Keighley a 14-point advantage.

Simons got his second try of the game for Thunder that Matty Beharrell converted before Keighley wrapped up victory with tries from Neil Cherryholme and Josh Guzdek and another Lawton goal.
