Halifax cruise to easy win
Halifax ran in six tries as they cruised to a 36-12 away win over Whitehaven in the fifth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.
Ben Kaye crossed twice while Adam Tangata, James Saltonstall, James Woodburn-Hall and Shane Grady also scored, and Steve Tyrer kicked six goals.
Tangata and Saltonstall had put the visitors 12-0 up before Elliot Miller replied for Whitehaven in the 28th minute, and Paul Cook replied to make it 12-4.
But Halifax's dominance showed as Woodburn-Hall and Grady scored two tries in the space of four minutes, putting the game out of reach for Whitehaven as they went in at the break trailing 24-6.
Kaye further stretched Halifax's lead before Jessie Joe Parker got a late consolation for the hosts.
However, Kaye would have the final word as Halifax romped into the sixth round.
