Full Time Report

Halifax rally for a draw against Whitehaven

Halifax came from 12-0 down to snatch a share of the spoils in a 12-12 draw at Whitehaven and move into the top four in the Kingstone Press Championship.

The home side went ahead on the half hour through Ed Chamberlain's try and they led 6-0 at half-time following a penalty from Louis Jouffret, who added the extras to Connor Holliday's 43rd-minute effort.

Will Sharp crossed and Steve Tyrer converted to halve the deficit six minutes later before their persistence paid off as Gareth Moore touched down and Tyrer held his nerve to knock over the two points to give Fax the draw.
