Halifax RLFC 28-18 Swinton Lions
Reittie leads Halifax to victory
Wayne Reittie scored a pair of tries as Halifax launched their Kingstone Press Championship campaign with a 28-18 victory over Swinton Lions.
Simon Brown, Ben Johnston and Reittie all crossed with Steve Tyrer converting all three as Halifax built up an 18-0 lead after 33 minutes.
Kevin Penny replied for Swinton on the stroke of half-time, with Mick Nanyn converting, but further scores from Reittie and Adam Robinson, the latter converted by Tyrer, saw Halifax comfortably ahead.
Andy Ackers went over for two late Swinton tries that were mere consolation, both converted by Nanyn.
