...going against them. But tries from Horne and Lineham have seen them over turn Makinson's early effort to make it 12-6 at the interval
Yorkshire Day has been celebrated throughout the county, with the local people, cuisine and language being brought to the fore.
But a group of historians has set out to prove that the way we talk has not always been how we recognise it today.
Michael Billington reports:
Almost £1.5 million has been earmarked to help regenerate Hull's Fruit Market in the hope that it will become a cultural centre for the city.
Half of the money is thanks to a successful bid to the Coastal Communities Fund, while the rest is being matched by the council.
Fiona Dwyer reports:
After years in the planning, and even last minute legal wrangling, the diggers today moved in to start the preparation work for the £450 million Able Marine Energy Park in North Lincolnshire.
Meanwhile in Grimsby, the energy giant E.on opened its offshore wind operations and maintenance base. Both projects are set to create thousands of jobs and transform the local economy. Sarah Clark reports.

To mark Yorkshire Day, residents upheld the tradition of reading the Declaration of Integrity - four times.

The Communities Secretary today opened part of the Humber Offshore Wind Farm.
The development has been billed as a major milestone.
– Matt Swanwick, Project Manager at E.ON
"We've hit significant milestones in the successful development of the Humber Gateway Wind Farm and hope to continue this trend until its proposed completion in 2015. So far, this has proved to be an important project for the area, creating a number of job opportunities and business for locally based companies during the construction process.
"The wind farm will be one of the UK's largest offshore sites, generating enough clean, green electricity to power up to 170,000 homes in the area, further highlighting the UK's continued investment in renewable energy sources."
The site's £3 million onshore facility has also been completed in Grimsby Fish Dock, which will accommodate the Operations and Maintenance Team with offices, stores, a workshop and wind farm control room. The building has its own solar array, roof top wind turbines and charging points for electric vehicles - helping to boost the project's green credentials.
Two vessels, the Spirit of Hoton and Spirit of Sunthorp, have recently been delivered to the site and will shortly be deployed for operations.
The third vessel, the Spirit of Turmarr, will be delivered in March.
Each vessel has been named after old villages lost through coastal erosion along the Holderness Coast.
