A depleted Mansfield Giants RUFC, who trailed at the interval, hit back to pip local rivals Ollerton 33-32 away from home.

The game was on a knife-edge throughout as Giants began to turn it round after the break.

Daniel Dykes showed his worth when introduced with outstanding team play and an amazing solo run and try while another highlight was Craig Worboys adding a try in the closing minutes from the back of the scrum, driving through to the line.

Grant Dixon and Callum Sherriff (2) also scored tries while Brown added the rest and out-kicked his opposite number in the shocking wind.

This Saturday Giants are at home to Gainsborough (2pm).
