Dewsbury Rams 18-36 Halifax RLFC


Halifax beat Dewsbury Rams 36-18 at the Tetley’s Stadium but have been replaced by London Broncos in the top four of the Championship on points difference. Steve Tyrer scored a brace for the visitors while James Saltonstall carried on his great run of scoring form with another try. 

Tyrer notched the opening six points of the game as he touched down before converting from the tee. Dewsbury replied with a try from Daniel Igbinedion, who had debutant Shaun Squires to thank for an inside pass. James Glover couldn’t level the scores as his conversion was off target. The Rams went ahead for a short time courtesy of a Sam Day try which was converted by Glover. However, Halifax fought back to regain their lead four minutes before the break. James Saltonstall latched on to a Scott Murrell pass before touching down. Tyrer converted from the touchline to put his side in front. The visitors finished the first half with 12 men as Ben Heaton was sin-binned but there was no damage to the scoreline as Richard Marshall’s men went to the sheds 12-10 up.

After the restart, Adam Tangata furthered Halifax’s lead with the opening try of the second half. Tyrer converted to make it a two score game. Tyrer completed his brace minutes later with Halifax looking to forge a strong lead. He was unable to convert but the visiting fans didn’t have to worry as Heaton and Connor Robinson crossed in quick succession. With 13 minutes remaining, Halifax led 30-10 and were well on their way to victory. Glover did cut into the deficit for Dewsbury but Ed Barber responded quickly with a four pointer of his own. The final four pointer of proceedings went the way of the Rams, and winger Dale Morton who raced in for his side’s fourth try.
