LUCTONIANS kept pace with their bottom half rivals by clinching a vital 3-3 draw against fellow strugglers Hull.

Ryan Watkins' side looked to be heading for victory in a low scoring game in Yorkshire when Ollie Allsopp kicked them ahead in the second half.

However, Hull pushed forwards and received a penalty, which they kicked for posts to earn a draw.

Ledbury were rewarded for withstanding the wet conditions by taking a 15-10 win over Stoke Old Boys.

The hosts started well with George Bennion stepping inside tacklers to ultimately score out wide, for an unconverted try.

Against the run of play Stoke Old Boys’ Connor Slater hacked on a loose Ledbury pass to score under the posts, to put his side ahead.

Ledbury responded with an excellent try for Jamie Rayfield, again unconverted, to take a 10-7 at half-time lead.

The conditions meant that Ledbury found difficulty in converting territorial gain into points due to unforced handling errors and it was Stoke Old Boys who found a new lease of life in the last ten minutes with some tremendous forward orientated surges.

Their reward was a well struck penalty which was too little too late.

Greyhound also face tough conditions and a determined Rugby Welsh side.

The visitors were too strong for the Hereford Racecourse based side and took a 42-12 victory.
