Rochdale Hornets survived a scare to defeat Normanton Knights in the Challenge Cup at Featherstone Rovers’ LD Nutrition Stadium.

Two tries for Rob Massam as well as tries for Danny Yates and Declan Kay won the game for the Hornets.

Connor Wilson scored twice to keep the Knights in the game, but they couldn’t quite get back in the game.

Rochdale coach Alan Kilshaw said he had never been as disappointed after a win in his entire coaching career, calling his side “a disgrace”.

The Hornets are back in Championship action on Friday when they welcome Toronto Wolfpack to Greater Manchester.

As for Normanton, they head back to the NCL Premier Division having done the community game proud. They travel to Myton Warriors next Saturday in the NCL.
