SEDGLEY Tigers stalwart Matt Riley marked his 350th game for the club with a fine display, helping his team to a notable win against Hinckley at Park Lane.

The Tigers ran in five tries to register a second successive win and leapfrog their opponents in the process to move up to sixth in National Two North.

Tries came from Richard Lepori (two), Sam Lowthian, Dan Maher and Bob Birtwell, while Steve Collins also kicked three conversions in a 31-10 triumph.

It is a return to form for a side that has struggled this season with a succession of injuries hampering their bid to challenge for promotion.

And assistant coach John Livesey was again pleased with Saturday’s outcome.

He said: “We played really well because they are not a bad side.

“They had good possession but defensively we were solid and did not let them through – we were far better in that department.

“When we played them away, we were bullied up front but that didn't happen this time.

“We knew we had to move wide to get scoring opportunities and that is how it panned out with only the last try from Bob Birtwell through the middle.”

The victory was a good way for Riley to celebrate his landmark appearance and he also had a big hand in one of the tries.

Livesey added: “Matt played as well in his 350th game as he did in his first for the club all those years ago.

“A great break from him set up Richard Lepori for his second try and that killed the game off for us.

Sedgley’s task does not get any easier with a trip to face league leaders Hull Ionians on Saturday.
