BRIGHOUSE Rangers’ indifferent form continued as they fell to another defeat away from home.
Coach Craig Young had to call on the recently retired Neil Walton due to a small crisis in player availability.
Crigglestone started the brightest and scored early doors with a converted try. Rangers began to impose themselves on the game and the pressure paid off as Walton crashed over and then hooker Stuart Proctor darted 50 yards from acting half to leave them 10-6 in front.
Minutes before the interval the Crigglestone full-back latched on to a neat kick through from the stand-off to score under the posts to open up a slight 12-10 lead at the interval.
Rangers were hoping to start the second half strongly. However some woeful defending on the fringes saw the All Blacks score three converted tries to put the game out of Brighouse’s reach.
To Rangers’ credit they hit back through Joe Taphouse and Stuart Proctor but left it too late to mount a fightback.
Best for Rangers were Stuart Proctor, Jamie Barraclough and Lewis Barrett.
