There they continued their winning run with a 52-7 victory to stay top of the division.

Cockermouth, who are looking to stay close behind the title hopefuls, won 29-13 at Whitehaven, who are fifth in the table, to keep the pressure on the leaders.

Upper Eden, who are sat in fourth and 12 points off Bennie's, won 47-0 at home to Hawcoat Park, while Silloth ended Workington's winning streak with a 36-31 victory.

Third-placed Wigton faced a trip to Carlisle Crusaders, were 84-7 victors, while bottom side Creighton took on Furness and were beaten 27-12 at home.

On Friday, Egremont hosted Millom and ran out 36-7 winners to stay comfortable in midtable.
