Featherstone dominated the first half of this local derby, with some strong defence and some fine flowing rugby. They scored four great tries through Ryan Barnaby (2) Liam Jackson and Liam Goodaire goals were added by Jackson one and Charlie Daley 3 including one impressive 40m effort.
The lions made 7 changes at half time and this seemed to disrupt the rhythm and allowed Panthers back in to the game. The panthers stuck at their game and were rewarded for their efforts with three second half scores. The highlight of the second half for the lions was a 5 meter try from Jack Nicholson his first try in two seasons.
