Halifax Vandals 22 Halifax 29

Halifax secure local bragging rights after tense derby.

Halifax were forced to dig deep to secure a crucial bonus point win over Halifax Vandals.

The match could have gone either way and the result remained very much in the balance throughout, as momentum swung from one side to the other.

Halifax, though, were thankful for some stoic second-half defence - particularly when down to 14 men after Giles Hetherington was sin-binned - and some timely set-piece steals as they clinched the win.

Jack Ryan, Shane Lewis, Ben Maxwell and Hetherington all crossed for tries to secure the bonus point, while Richard Cole added three conversions and a penalty in tricky kicking conditions.

Halifax now have a week off before a tough-looking clash against Mosborough at Ovenden Park on March 28.
