Doncaster Knights remain seven points clear at the top of National One after coming from behind to beat Henley Hawks.

Second half tries from Tyson Lewis, Mat Clark (2), Glenn Bryce and Dougie Flockhart saw Clive Griffiths’ men overturn Henley’s half time lead and stay on course for an immediate return to the Championship.

Ross Davies surged over for Knights in the first half but Henley led 10-7 at the interval courtesy of an early Danny Wells penalty and a converted try from Ed Yarnton.

Flockhart kicked three conversions in difficult conditions.

With eight games now remaining, second placed Rosslyn Park kept the pressure on Doncaster with a 44-0 bonus point win at Worthing.
