Halifax hit back to win
Two tries in the last three minutes saw Halifax record a 30-26 victory over Sheffield in the Co-operative Championship.
The home side were 22-12 down at the break, but rallied in the second half to register their 12th victory of the season as tries from Luke Ambler and Anthony Thackery sealed a dramatic win.
The triumph means Halifax are now just two points behind current leaders Featherstone.
Vinny Finigan gave the fourth-placed visitors a fifth minute lead, before Scott Turner touched down five minutes later, with Scott Brown adding the extras on both scores.
The hosts struck back after 21 minutes when Rob Worrincy went over with Paul Handforth kicking the goal.
Thackery scored another try two minutes later with Steve Tyrer's goal levelling the scores.
However Michael Knowles put Sheffield back in front after 26 minutes, with Brown's goal on the half-time whistle putting his side well in control.
Paul White's try six minutes after the break kick-started the recovery, with Tyrer adding the extra.
With three minutes left Sheffield looked set to record a shock win but Ambler and then Thackery touched down to record what could be a vital victory.
