Rugby League: No end to Halifax slide

Click to follow
Halifax slipped to their sixth successive defeat as Paris St-Germain took their good form from the World Club Championship into the Super League to win 14-12. The Blue Sox seemed to be suffering from severe jet lag, having touched down from Australia earlier this week on the back of three humiliating defeats, in which they conceded 204 points.

Without their injured captain, Karl Harrison, Halifax looked short of strength and ideas, and their handling was poor.

Despite that Paris were never completely in control and Halifax had a chance to level the game after Fereti Tuilagi scored a try in injury time but John Schuster, in his first Super League game for two months after suffering a broken leg, put the conversion wide.
