Halifax had their eyes on second spot in the Kingstone Press Championship heading into today’s big Shay return at home to Whitehaven (3.0).

Fax have been free-scoring on home territory this season and glorious weather raised hopes of a try-fest against the sixth-placed Cumbrians, who are in reasonable form themselves.

Karl Harrison’s men are one point behind Featherstone, who are at home to Batley this afternoon.

Sheffield continue to show the way with a five-point advantage over Fax after they made it 15 wins on the bounce with a 34-10 victory over Swinton on Friday.
