Kingstone Press Championship Round 18 – Dewsbury Rams 16-46 Halifax

This all West Yorkshire derby went the way of Halifax, and by some distance too. A 30 point victory was no less than they deserved, and with Scott Murrell in fine form, their chances of a top four finish are very likely. After 23 minutes, Halifax were 18-0 up after tries from Mitch Cahalane, Dane Manning and Murrell. Toby Adamson and Anthony Thackeray both replied with a try each to reduce the arrears by 12 points but Manning bagged his brace to bring back a two score advantage for his side. Ben Johnston and Ross Divorty notched a four pointer apiece to create more daylight between the two teams. Jason Crookes barged over Dewsbury on 63 minutes but after Murrell and Cahalane both completed their braces, the job was complete for the visitors as they go into next week’s crunch clash with London Broncos in high spirits.
