Miners’ perfect home record came to an end at the hands of a strong Myton side. The indications were always that this was going to be a tough encounter against a side who have impressed in their top-flight debut and that was exactly how it panned out in atrocious weather conditions as Miners were never in front during the game. However having clawed back from 16-4 to level pegging with twenty minutes remaining the Leigh side appeared in a position to go on and wrap up victory, before Myton found a second wind and closed out the win in clinical fashion.

Miners were forced into changes with Martin Lewis sidelined by the facial injury sustained the previous weekend, Ross Bradley away and Lee Gittins ruled out after picking up an injury in midweek. In came young Ryan Monaghan from the youth team on the wing, with Liam Coleman and Adam Thomason pulled from the pack to become emergency threequarters. Myton had the ex Skirlaugh and East Hull schemer Jordan Precious in the halves.

It was the Warriors who made the stronger start and came close to scoring on eight minutes when Kris Walker kicked through to the left wing where Lee James won the race to the ball despite appearing suspiciously offside. The winger was held short but as play broke down Miners were ruled to have knocked on and from the scrum big centre James Jennison drove to the line and flicked the pass out for Chris Wainman to gather and squeeze in at the corner. The lead was extended five minutes later, the big Myton pack pounded at the Miners’ line and making the breakthrough when Allan Dunham crashed over beside the posts, Walker goaling for 10-0. Miners were in dire straits but snatched a lifeline when some good play opened up the right channel and Shaun Marsh and Coleman combined to put Sean Pendlebury over by the flag. However it was Myton with the next score and a commanding interval lead, a penalty giving them position for Precious to throw the deep ball right and Richard Dunham charging through to score, Ashley James taking over the kicking duties and landing the conversion for 16-4.

Miners needed a swift response if they were to have any chance of getting back into the game and they had just that inside a minute of the restart, Scott O’Brien taking on the line and although he slipped slightly on the greasy surface it helped to create the gap that he then shot through to score, Jonny Youds goaling. It then required a phenomenal defensive effort to hold Myton out, some tremendous scrambling hauling Wainman into touch when he appeared certain to score. Gradually though Miners were wearing their opponents down and it wasn’t a surprise when the home side got the next score to pull level, Thomason finding a gap and bursting through to score, Youds with the fine conversion to square things up. The momentum appeared with Miners but almost immediately Myton ensured they were chasing the game again as Walker popped over the field goal and within two minutes the lead was two scores, Matt Welham dummying and going through for what felt like the killer score. Seven minutes from time and with Miners forcing the play a pass inside the Myton twenty was intercepted by Wainman and he went clear to score his second, James goaling for 29-16. Miners did have the last word when Marsh found Thomason for his second but it was too little too late.
