Chris Atkin holds nerve to seal match-winning points as Swinton see off Halifax

Second-placed Halifax RLFC were beaten as Swinton Lions' Chris Atkin held his nerve at the end to convert Macauley Hallett's second try of the game for a 28-26 Kingstone Press Championship Shield Super 8s win.

Atkins scored 12 points, including a 12th-minute try, while Connor Dwyer and Dan Fleming also touched down.

Ben Heaton, Will Sharp and Luke Nelmes scored tries for Halifax before Nick Rawsthorne's late double looked to have won the match.
