Doncaster RLFC 39-18 Halifax RLFC
Doncaster join the chase for second
Doncaster kept alive their hopings of finishing second in the Kingstone Press Championship table following a 39-18 victory over Halifax.
A week ago, Doncaster were six points adrift of second-placed Featherstone Rovers but they won their appeal against a three-point deduction for fielding an ineligible player and are now just a point behind Featherstone with a game to go.
Player-coach Paul Cooke, veteran forward Steve Snitch and winger David Scott all scored two tries apiece as Doncaster built on a 19-6 interval lead.
Andy Bracek, Luke Adamson and Paul Mennell scored tries for Halifax but they were not enough to prevent a second successive defeat, again without a losing bonus point to console them.
