Three Harrogate RUFC stars helped Yorkshire avoid relegation and beat Durham 20-5 on Sunday.

Late call-up Noel Minikin produced a stoic defensive display as Yorkshire maintained top tier County Championship status.

Hooker Steve Maycock made a solid impact when he came on.

Harrogate head coach Mike Aspinall also entered the fray late on as Yorkshire surged to victory.
