Featherstone Rovers 18-12 Batley Bulldogs
Featherstone keep heat on Eagles
Featherstone came from behind to gain a precious 18-12 win over Batley to maintain the pressure on Kingstone Press Championship leaders Sheffield Eagles.
Batley led 12-10 at half-time thanks to tries from full-back Miles Greenwood and winger Greg Johnson, both goaled by Tom Hemingway, but hooker Andy Ellis scored two minutes into the second half to nudge Rovers in front and they held on to complete the double over the Bulldogs.
Steve Crossley and Ian Hardman had scored first-half tries for Featherstone, who are just a point behind the Eagles and one in front of Halifax.
