Rochdale Hornets strike back to seal Hunslet Hawks triumph

Rochdale Hornets overturned a half-time deficit to open their 2016 Kingstone Press League 1 campaign with a 28-18 victory over Hunslet Hawks.

The visitors, relegated from the Championship last season, went into the break 14-10 to the good after tries from Richie Barnett, George Flanagan and Mo Agoro cancelled out Joe Philbin\'s double.

The Hornets lost Jordan Case to the sin bin but hit the front for the first time through Wayne English\'s try and extended their lead courtesy of Samir Tahraoui\'s long-range effort.

Stuart Biscomb crossed to wrap up the two points for Rochdale, although it was Hunslet who had the last word with Barnett\'s second try.
