Official Match Report

Halifax hold off Whitehaven

Fourth-placed Halifax scored five second-half tries to gain a 36-14 Kingstone Press Championship win over Whitehaven at the Recreation Ground.

Looking to bounce back from their disappointing Challenge Cup exit, the Cumbrians were level at 10-10 at half-time after scoring tries through Shaun Ainscough and Chris Smith.

However, Halifax found their touch after the break, with Dane Manning scoring his second try and others coming from Scott Murrell, Gareth Potts, Tom Saxton and Paul Mennell.

Whitehaven had the final say when long-serving winger Craig Calvert went over for the 199th try of his career in the final minute.
