Toronto see off Featherstone

Betfred Championship leaders Toronto Wolfpack extended their winning run to 15 games

The Wolfpack led 14-0 at the break courtesy of Gareth O'Brien's second-minute try on Saturday, which he converted himself, and Chase Stanley's effort later in the half.

Rovers made inroads into Toronto's lead early in the second half, with Jack Ormondroyd bursting through several tackles before touching down for his side's first try in the 43rd minute and Will Dagger adding the extras.

But Toronto responded five minutes later, extending their lead courtesy of Ricky Leutele after good work from O'Brien.

Josh Walters closed the gap for Featherstone once again in the 55th minute as his try and Dagger's conversion made it 18-12.

The hosts stamped their authority on the game as Josh McCrone went over 15 minutes before the end, only for debutant Connor Jones to cut the gap to four points with his converted try in the 71st minute but Toronto held on to win the game.

In Saturday's other game, Ilias Bergal scored six tries as Toulouse Olympique XIII cruised to a 68-0 win against basement boys Rochdale Hornets.

Mark Kheirallah bagged a brace in the emphatic victory, while Taioalo Vaivai, Constantine Mika, Anthony Marion and Paterika Vaivai also crossed.

Chester Butler secured his hat-trick with a late try while Steve Tyrer crossed twice and added six conversions as Halifax RLFC beat Widnes Vikings 40-10.

Adam Tangata and Brandon Moore also got on the scoresheet for Halifax, while Sam Wilde and Jayden Hatton scored Widnes' tries.

There were two draws on Sunday as second-placed York City Knights' trip to Batley Bulldogs ended 14-14 and Connor Farrell scored a last-gasp try to earn Bradford Bulls a 34-34 draw against Swinton Lions.

A fantastic second-half effort saw Leigh Centurions recover from a slow start to beat struggling Barrow Raiders 24-8.
