Halifax RLFC 28-2 Rochdale Hornets


Halifax racked up their seventh straight league victory with a rather straightforward victory against Rochdale Hornets. The visitors scored the opening points of the game through Danny Yates but his goal would prove to be Rochdale’s only contribution to the scoreboard. Ben Johnston and Steve Tyrer both scored in quick succession as Halifax looked to grab a foothold in the game. Hornets full-back Chris Riley was sin-binned for a professional foul in the 34th minute but his side were able to hold out in his absence.

The second half saw Will Sharp and Adam Tangata register four pointers apiece ahead of the final quarter, in which Fax scored the game’s final try to add gloss on a good win. Simon Grix touched down in the 77th minute, as Richard Marshall’s men warmed up for their Summer Bash date with Toulouse Olympique in good fashion.
