Official Match Report

Fax slip up

Halifax fell five points behind second-placed Featherstone in the Kingstone Press Championship after Paul Cooke's last-gasp try helped Doncaster to a 28-28 draw.

Wayne Reittie, Ben Heaton, Andy Bracek, Dane Manning and Callum Casey all crossed for Fax, with Paul Handforth adding the extras to four of those tries, as they looked on course to claim a narrow victory.

Doncaster looked like they would fall short despite efforts from Cooke, Mike Kelly, Matt Dawson and Mike Emmett, but Cooke crossed for a second time in the final minute and David Scott booted his fourth goal to ensure the spoils were shared.
