Featherstone Rovers ended their Super 8s Qualifiers campaign on a high with a 26-20 victory over fellow Kingstone Press Championship side Halifax RLFC.
Both teams had failed to threaten the promotion places after finishing in the Championship's top four but the bottom two produced an exciting contest at the Shay.
John Davies' early try and two goals from Ian Hardman left Featherstone in control but Ben Kaye crossed for the first of his two tries in the closing stages of the first half to make it 8-6 at the break.
Rovers appeared to be out of sight after Misi Taulapapa added to tries from Luke Briscoe and Frankie Mariano to make it 26-12 with Jacob Fairbank in the sin bin.
Rob Worrincy and Ben Heaton crossed to set up a nervy finish but Hardman's five goals proved the difference.
Tensions boiled over in the closing minute as Featherstone forward Richard Moore and Halifax winger Heaton were both sent off.
