PREMIER DIVISION, WEEK 18 Defending champions Townville clambered to within one point of Methley at the summit of the Premier Division, collecting six points from Altofts while the leaders had to settle for four points against Scholes. Wakefield Thornes remain in contention, although they too had to make do with four points at Wrenthorpe.
