Fax under 23s lose out against Rovers

Halifax under 23s lost 40-4 to unbeaten Featherstone at the Shay last night.

Fax trailed 22-4 at half time, with first team forward Josh Barlow scoring their try, before falling further behind after the break.

Barlow and playmaker Callum Casey were both withdrawn early in case they are needed for Friday night’s Northern Rail Cup semi final at Sheffield.

“We were missing a few players, but we made too many mistakes,” said coach Martin Gonzalez.
