Cleckheaton recorded a superb 34-8 derby victory over Morley in North One East at Scatcherd Lane this afternoon (Saturday).

Morley simply had no answer to Cleckheaton’s dominant pack as the visitors ran in five tries.

Rich Piper scored twice, taking his tally for the season to 19, while impressive scrum-half Jack Bickerdike, Ross Hayden and James Wilson also crossed.

Fly-half Iain Gordon landed a penalty and three conversions, two from the touchline as Cleck ended Morley’s 11-match winning run.
