Last gasp drop-kick sees Sedgley loose

Leicester Lions recovered from an 11-point deficit to beat Sedgley Park for the second time this season 19-20.

Tries from Andy Riley (2) and Connor James gave Sedge their 19-8 first-half lead, with Dan Ali crossing for the Lions.

But three penalties from Dan Lewis in the final quarter of the contest set-up a dramatic finish at Park Lane.

The Lions were awarded a late penalty and opted for the sticks. Lewis lined up another kick at goal, but when he took his run up, the ball dropped off the tee.

He then picked up the ball off the floor and slotted a drop-kick from about 40m out to clinch a remarkable victory for the Lions.
