Hat-trick Riley steers Sedge to victory

Matt Riley scored a hat-trick as Sedgley Park remain hot on the heels of the top two after a bonus-point win over Sheffield Tigers.

Riley (2) and Leon Simpson scored tries inside the first 20 minutes, but backs Jamie Broadley, Ryan Homes and Henri Packard replied for the Tigers.

Riley’s hat-trick, his first in 333 appearances for Sedge, saw the home side go five points in front, but the visitors responded via a Joseph Duffy penalty and a Thomas Taylor-Dawes score to lead 29-24.

However, Sedge took control of this contest in the final quarter as Ben Black and Andy Riley both dotted down to clinch the victory for Matt Bebbington’s side.
