Their opponents were decided yesterday when Rangers won 22-20 away to West Hull, who had finished six points behind Siddal when second in the Premier Division table.

Third-place finishers Rangers led 10-2 at half time.

Wingers William Ashworth and Todd Fenton scored two tries apiece, Full back Jonathan Youds kicked three goals and was their star man.
