Carnegie Challenge Cup Round 2

Wigan St Cuthberts wanted to serve revenge for last weeks 52-4 victory in the national cup and came to Sharlston with a changed lineup with 6 new additions.

Prop Matty Lowe put St Cuthberts on the forward foot whenever he had the ball proving a real hand full to bring down. After taking a lead on the game with a quick brace for scrumhalf Tom Wandless an interception try just before the interval for Sheridan to go length of the field put the visitors in front.

Cuthberts continued the brighter in the second half but Rovers squared the game with 8 mins to go with a superb bust from Sean Emblem seeing off several players from half way. Wigan got the drop goal that looked to put them through.

The visitors waved away a chance at goal into the wind with minutes left but Rovers last ditch play resulted in a penalty just into the opponents half for taking out the kicker. Ian Jackson assisted by the wind kicked Rovers into the next round but were given a real scare. The draw will take place Tuesday evening at Whitehaven.
