Over to the West to League 1 champions Rochdale Hornets, who succeeded in surviving relegation and lived to fight another day in the Kingstone Press Championship.
The Hornets had a real sting about them early on the season as they emerged as somewhat dark horses in the league.
They did start to drop off after the first few but such an early run was important as it did help them to eventual survival.
Plenty more of that to follow in their review below and whether they have what it takes to remain in the second division.
Best Performance: Rochdale Hornets 46-0 Dewsbury Rams
Early days but Rochdale certainly cashed in on their enthusiasm as they put Dewsbury to the sword at the Crown Oil Arena back in round one.
The Hornets were certainly excited to restart life in the Championship by overwhelming their opponents from the off.
The Rams even fielded several Wakefield players on dual-registration but it proved quite futile in what was an onslaught.
But even top level talent was helpless here; with Rochdale running in tries through Samir Tahraoui, Danny Yates, Jovili Taira, Rob Massam, Lewis Gailbraith, Ryan Maneely and two from Ben Moores.
The Hornets never even allowed the Rams in for a consolation effort as Alan Kilshaw’s men went home worthy winners.
Superb stuff in what would be a strong start from Rochdale and as aforementioned, something that would help them to survival.
