WITH Barnsley’s home match against Ripon postponed because of the weather conditions, Doncaster Phoenix missed their chance to go ahead of the Shaw Lane team when they were defeated 18-10 at home to Pocklington in Yorkshire Two.
Phoenix had taken an early lead with a try by winger Daniel Greenslade, converted by Dan Storey, and a penalty goal by Storey.
But Pocklington pulled back two penalty goals before half time and clinched the match with two second-half tries.
Phoenix travel to West Leeds on Saturday with Barnsley making a similar trip, to West Park Leeds.
Rawmarsh saw off Nestle Rowntree 10-8 in Yorkshire Five where Rotherham Clifton edged past Hornsea 15-8.
The two local rivals meet on Saturday at Barbers Avenue.
