Xamax Team Rankings


Rochdale Hornets, similar to fellow newly promoted side Toulouse Olympique, hammered a West Yorkshire team in the first round of the Championship season. Dewsbury Rams, with four dual-registration players from Wakefield Trinity in their ranks, couldn’t handle Alan Kilshaw’s side who triumphed 46-0. The Hornets led 22-0 at the break after a brace from Ben Moores as well as four pointers courtesy of Samir Tahraoui and Danny Yates.

In the opening stages of the second period, things got even better for the Rochdale fans who were already in dream land following the first half action! Jo Taira extended the hosts’ advantage to put an exclamation mark on the performance, even though there was still half an hour to go. Lewis Palfrey kicked two penalty goals to take Rochdale over the 30 point mark before Rob Massam touched down for his 100th professional try. Lewis Galbraith and Ryan Maneely finished off the job in style with a try apiece to leave the Hornets supporters ecstatic.
