Featherstone Rovers remain unbeaten after a 68-24 win over Dewsbury Rams at Tetley’s Stadium.

The visitors took the lead early on through Craig Kopczak, before Dewsbury levelled the scores through Bayley Liu.

But tries from Dean Parata and Craig Hall, who also added a penalty, had the Rovers up 20-6 at the break. And a three-try spell at the start of the second half saw Featherstone pull further clear.

Gareth Gale scored twice, Hall got his second and Luke Cooper also got in on the act in the first 11 minutes of the second half. In the middle of that spell, Dewsbury fullback Matty Fleming was sent to the sin bin for dissent. The first Gale try was also given as an eight-point effort.

Dewsbury hit back just before the hour through Tom Garratt, but again that did nothing to stop the Featherstone tide.

Parata grabbed two more to complete his hat-trick and Hall also got the try he needed for his hat-trick as well, before Reiss Butterworth claimed a third Dewsbury try.

It was soon four tries for Parata, before Lewis Carr struck with the final play of the game for Dewsbury to wrap up the scoring.
