Championship fixtures: Fax face play off rivals early

editorial image

Halifax face the toughest of openings to the 2014 Championship season, with games against top four rivals Featherstone, Batley and Sheffield inside the first four weeks.

Karl Harrison’s side kick off their season at home against Swinton on February 16, before a trip to Post Office Road on February 23.

After that, there are back to back home games against the Bulldogs and the Eagles in early March.

As expected, there has been no late reprieve for the Northern Rail Cup, leaving the Championship clubs with the end-of-season Grand Final as their first and last chance of silverware.
