Marshall thrilled after Halifax pick up first Qualifiers victory

Richard Marshall expressed his delight following Halifax’s 34-12 victory over Leigh.

Following four consecutive defeats at the start of the Qualifiers, Fax finally got off the mark in a victory that keeps their hopes of a place in the Million Pound Game alive.

A 20-0 half-time lead for Fax put down a marker, and although Leigh threatened a comeback with two tries early in the second-half, Fax put the game to bed.

“I thought we dominated for the majority of the game if I’m being honest,” Said Marshall

“Apart from a blip just after half-time, they put a couple of tries on, take that out and we were the better team for 95 per cent of the game. That was more of a complete performance, our kicking was better, we knew they had some special outside backs and we contained them really well.
“We really muscled up in the middle and I think that shocked them a little bit to be honest. The ultimate dream is to get this club into Super League, but it’s unlikely it’s going to be this season. We haven’t played well enough in these Super 8’s to get in there.
“That said, off the back of this performance we may need to revisit what we talked about at the start of the Super 8’s.”
