Hornets edge past Crusaders

Rochdale were indebted to Super League partners St Helens for their 30-28 Kingstone Press Championship victory over North Wales Crusaders.

Winger Adam Swift, playing on a dual registration, put Hornets on their way to victory with two first-half tries and Australian Shannon McDonnell, the former Hull KR and Hull full-back who is seeking match fitness before making his Saints debut, was also a try-scorer as the home side led 20-10 at the break.

Substitute Lewis Sheridan sealed the win with two second-half tries and, although forward Jono Smith barged his way over the line twice in the last five minutes, it came too late to prevent Crusaders going down to a seventh successive defeat.
