Halifax RLFC 34-6 Dewsbury Rams


Halifax became the latest team to beat Dewsbury Rams, who go into the Easter period with no points to their name. A Steve Tyrer brace and an exceptional performance from the experienced Simon Grix helped Fax to the victory after they were all square at the break with the score 6-6.

Dewsbury broke the deadlock after five minutes as Dom Speakman picked up his own grubber kick to touch down. Paul Sykes was successful with the conversion and it was a perfect start for the Rams, who still had Johnathan Schofield and Karl Pryce in temporary charge of the team. It looked like Dewsbury were going into half-time with the lead after a rather uninspiring first 40 minutes from Halifax but the hosts did get on the board thanks to James Saltonstall. Tyrer slotted over the conversion from the touchline to level the scores.

It didn’t take long for Fax to score their second try as Grix crossed the whitewash on 42 minutes to put the hosts in front for the first time in the game. Tyrer was unsuccessful with the conversion but he made amends after Rob Worrincy extended his side’s advantage with the final quarter fast approaching. Ten points separated the two teams and Dewsbury needed the next score but it wasn’t forthcoming and their defence was starting to show its frailties as Tyrer got on the end of a Ben Johnston kick. The centre added the extras and he soon completed his brace to make it 28-6. Adam Tangata scored the final try of the contest as the hosts saw off Dewsbury with relative ease by the end of the game.
