The third round of the Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Challenge Cup went according to the formbook yesterday. Only Castleford Lock Lane and neighbouring Redhill were close to causing upsets.

Two tries in the last six minutes by Peter Green and Billy Conway helped Doncaster to a 26-14 win over Lock Lane at the Jungle. The amateur side threatened an upset when, with the score at 14-14, Lee Hughes had a touchdown disallowed 10 minutes from time.

Chorley, victims of Woolston 12 months ago, were given a scare by Redhill before a 64th-minute Wayne Blower try sealed a 10-2 win.

York, beaten twice by amateur opposition in the last seven years, chalked up their first win of any kind for 11 months in convincing fashion with a 42-0 victory over Milford at Headingley.

French club St Gaudens went into tonight's fourth-round draw after a 24-0 win at Keighley, but Toulouse lost 38-12 at Workington.
