WARRINGTON Wolves loanee Riley Dean played a starring role in York City Knights' first victory of the new season.

The Wire youngster – on loan at the LNER Community Stadium for the season – started at scrum-half and put in an excellent display, scoring two tries and assisting three more as the Knights thrashed Swinton Lions 64-16 at Heywood Road.

Dean's performance was good enough for him to scoop the OurLeague Player of the Match award.

The 19-year-old has started two of York's three Championship games this season, with the win at Swinton their first of the campaign.

Meanwhile, Eribe Doro and Ellis Robson both featured in a heavy defeat for Widnes Vikings at Batley Bulldogs on Saturday.

Doro, who started in the front row, got himself over the whitewash for the Vikings as they led16-10 at the break before collapsing to a 48-16 loss.

He has started all three Championship games for Simon Finnigan's side, who followed up their opening day draw at Newcastle Thunder with a home defeat to Dewsbury Rams before the loss to Batley.
