Barnsley RUFC returned to winning ways at the weekend with a 20-12 home triumph over Halifax side Old Rishworthians.

It was the Shaw Lane team's first win in four games and the hosts took the initiative from the off. First half tries from Will Smith and Paddy Jensen gave them a 10-0 lead at the break.

Their lead was added to in the second with both Greg Colbridge and Jack Iles going over.

A late rally from the visitors ensured they got some points on the board but Barnsley deserved the win in difficult conditions.
