Official Match Report

Rovers stung by Hornets

Second-placed Featherstone slipped further behind league-leaders Leigh after being edged out 38-34 at lowly Rochdale.

The second-bottom Hornets raced into an 18-0 lead thanks to converted scores from Paul Crook, Stuart Littler and Ryan Millard, but Featherstone came roaring back following tries from Jason Crookes, Andy Kain and Steve Crossley.

But Sean Casey, Matt Dawson, James Dandy and Warren Thompson helped Rochdale to victory and meant that tries from Will Sharp, Etuate Uaisele and Ian Hardman were in vain for Rovers, who are ahead of third-placed Halifax by just one point.
