Rochdale Hornets 6-20 Halifax RLFC

Report

A bit like the proverbial bus, Halifax won their second consecutive league match as they beat Rochdale Hornets 20-6 at the Crown Oil Arena.

It was a well contested game, with the visitors only leading by two points at the break – 8-6. The Hornets got on the scoresheet first thanks to Rob Massam on six minutes, a try which was converted by Lewis Palfrey. It didn’t take too long for Halifax to reply as Ed Barber registered an impressive solo score, with Steve Tyrer converting to level the scores. A penalty goal from Tyrer later on in the half gave the visitors a slender advantage heading into the second half. A solid defensive effort coupled with a two-try performance in attack saw Richard Marshall’s men take the spoils.

Tyrer scored a try and also kicked a penalty to give his side a two score lead before Rob Worrincy put the game beyond doubt soon after. With a numerical advantage on their side thanks to yellow cards shown to Gary Middlehurst and Ben Moores, Worrincy touched down to wrap up the spoils for the West Yorkshire side.
