Hornets set up promotion showdown with Toulouse after seeing off Hawks

Rochdale Hornets set up a promotion final with Toulouse Olympique XIII following a 34-18 victory over Hunslet Hawks in their final fixture of the Kingstone Press League 1 Super 8s.

Dave Cookson and Chris Riley both touched down twice for the Hornets at Spotland, while there further tries from Ryan Maneely, Samir Tahraoui and Lewis Galbraith and three conversions from Paul Crook.

The away side failed to score in a fractious first half which saw five men sin-binned, but they reduced the arrears after the break through two tries from Danny Ansell plus further touchdowns from Jack Lee and Richie Barnett and a Simon Brown conversion.
