Match report: Doncaster 48 North Wales Crusaders 12 - VIDEO

THE Dons are just one win away from their first league title after a day when everything went their way in Championship One.

Tony Miller’s men took care of the matters in their own hands with a comfortable win over North Wales Crusaders which saw two changes to the club’s record books.

And another new record could be added after somewhat surprise defeats elsewhere for Barrow and Workington Town left Doncaster at the top of the table.

Victory at London Skolars on September 2 will hand the Dons their first ever league title.

Sunday’s clash with the Crusaders provided two reasons to celebrate other than the nine try win.

Victory ensured the Dons ended their home campaign with a 100 per cent record.

And a brace from Lee Wateman saw him equal the club’s tries in a season record.

It took just five minutes for the Dons to open the scoring with Danny Cowling latching onto an inch-perfect pass from Paul Cooke, who landed six kicks on the afternoon.

Chris Spurr was next over for the hosts before Leon Brennan opened the visitors’ tally after a well-worked move from the scrum.

But the hosts were in full control with a try from Carl Hughes and a second from Cowling giving them a 22-6 lead at the break.

North Wales’ resistance dropped in the second half and allowed Doncaster to cement their advantage.

Waterman, who had little sight of the line in the first half, grabbed two tries in quick succession to equal Luke Gale’s 32 for the season, secured in 2008.

Craig Fawcett added another for Doncaster before Andy Mousdale hit back for the Crusaders.

The last say would go to the title chasing hosts with Grant Edwards and Nathan Powley going over.
