LITHGOW Workmens Club and defending premiers Orange CYMS fought out a dour grinding 20-all draw which has seen both sides advance to 15 points on the Group 10 competition ladder.
They are joined by Bathurst St Patricks who are also on 15 after their big win over Oberon.
The match was played in slippery, cold conditions and both Workies and CYMS can look back on a number of incidents which cost them that vital point.
CYMS turned down a kick right in front of the posts when the scores were 16-10 while Workies chose to run the ball wide on the third tackle a minute before fulltime when they were camped in front of the posts and only metres out, instead of going for the field goal.
