Halifax 10 York RI 10

Halifax remain six points clear in second place after they were held to a 10-10 draw by York RI.

Halifax kept their promotion hopes alive after they drew with rivals York RI at Ovenden Park.

It was a scrappy encounter in tricky conditions - and Halifax will look back on missed opportunities to seal the win.

Shane Lewis scored their only try, while Richard Cole added a conversion and Giles Hetherington slotted over a drop goal.

However a late converted try from RI meant the spoils were shared.

Halifax, who have a six-point lead over Skipton in the second promotion spot, now face a big derby clash against Halifax Vandals at Warley on Saturday.

Quilter Kids First Champions winner – November: Hinckley RFC
