|RESULT: Riversiders 18 Newton Storm 34|
|A good effort and determination wasnt enough for the Riversiders against a well drilled Newton Storm.|
Newton raced into a 16-0 lead, only for the Riversiders to fight back to make the score 16-12 at half time.
The second half started much as the same as the first for the Riversiders with Newton taking control early.
Next up an away trip to early pace setters Accrington Panthers.
|RESULT: Riversiders 76 Saddleworth Rangers A 10|
|AT LAST!! A complete performance earned the Riversiders first win of the 2012 NWML Division 4 season.|
We have been saying that once we hit out straps that we will be a tough team to beat and we would look to move up the table ladder.
Saddleworth have been hitting some decent form over the past few weeks with a win against Waterhead and only losing to table topping Newton Storm by 4 points last week.
The Riversiders raced into a 28-0 lead within the first 20 minutes and never looked back. Up 38-10 at half time it was pleased to see the pressure increase in the second half and no tries conceded, with a further 38 scored.
MOM was Simon Atherton.
|RESULT: Eccleston Lions 36 Riversiders 6|
|A tough away fixture left the Riversiders soul searching after performing well in spells. With a number of players picking up injuries early into the game it was always going to be a up hill battle against a decent looking Eccleston side.|
The Riversiders only try came from Damian Hayton who took an interception pass and ran 80 metres.

|GAME: NWML Div 4 Game 3 - Riversiders v Folly Lane A|
|The Riversiders welcome Swinton based outfit Folly Lane A to Parsons Meadow this weekend in search of the first league victory for both teams.|
The Riversiders have headed back to the training field over the past few weeks to try and put right the early disapointments of the season so far. The fixtures have been kind and have gave the Riversiders a break that they needed after what could be considers a tough and packed pre season.
By game day it will almost be a full month since the Riversiders last league game back on the 28th April. Bank holiday breaks and fixture cancellations have added to an already quiet start to life in Division 4.
Training this week is an important one, all players wishing to be in line for selection this weekend get down Wednesday for a 645 start at Wigan St Judes, we currently train on the football pitches over the bridge at the back of the Rugby pitches.
Coach Mayo will name his 17 on Wednesday.
|We unfortunately over the past few weeks have been unable to update the site with match details, news to the level that we would like. But we are pleased to say we are back in action!|
|RESULT: Wigan Bulldogs 20 Wigan Riversiders 22|
|The Riversiders continued in winning ways, but only just against a gritty and determined Bulldogs side.|
After only 10 minutes of the game the Riversiders saw themselves 16-0 up after tries from Greg Brown, Craig Hogan and Mike West on debut.
For the next 50 minutes of the game it was all about the Bulldogs, it has to be said with help from the Riversiders, dropped ball, penalties kept on giving the Bulldogs field position and it didnt take them long to smell an upset.
With 10 left on the clock, the Riversiders found themselves behind 20-16 after a great comback from the Bulldogs, the cause was not helped after Mike West has to leave the field with a suspected broken jaw and Craig Johnson was sin-binned after exchanging words with the match official.
The Riversiders took the game after a mistake from the Bulldogs full back, loose forward Gavin Hurst was the quickest to reacte to a loose ball and raced under the sticks to give the Riversider a 22-20 victory.
Coach Mayo was rightly unhappy with the overall performance after the first 10 minutes. But did take positives from the way some things from the training pitch where executed well on the field.
Training continues this Wednesday, 645 at Wigan St Judes, the next game will be the road trip to Northampton on the 14th April.
