The semi-finals of the Championship saw Bootroom Tigers progress to the final to play against Yorkshire Thornes, whose semi-final once again went to a dramatic drop off - where teams who finish level lose players until the golden try is scored - against Featherstone.
Bootroom Tigers went onto to win the Championship for Round 2 of Coast to Coast.
Meanwhile, the Plate semis saw close games with Touch Fit Bulls and Touch Fit Rhinos progressing to the final, providing a thrilling final and local derby with the Rhinos coming out on top.
