Brad Delaney brace helps Doncaster down Hawks

Doncaster overcame a brave second-half fightback from Hunslet Hawks to secure a 30-22 victory and move to the top of Kingstone Press League 1.

Kyle Kesik sent Michael Kelly over after just six minutes, only for Hunslet's Danny Ansell to put James Duckworth over in the corner as the hosts responded before a Brad Delaney brace gave the visitors an 18-4 half-time lead.

Jimmy Watson weaved through the Doncaster defence and Jake Normington capitalised on Liam Welham dropping the ball 10 metres from his own line before Simon Brown levelled with a penalty, and Richie Barnett reached highest to a Brown kick to put Hunslet ahead only for Kesik to set up Jason Tali, with Mark Castle sealing the win late on.
