Two tries in the last nine minutes earned Kingstone Press Championship favourites Featherstone Rovers a 22-20 win at Dewsbury Rams.

Rovers looked to be heading for their first away league defeat for two years when they trailed 18-6 at half-time and were 20-10 behind in the closing stages.

Skipper Liam Finn converted his own try to cut the gap to two points before Kyle Briggs (pictured) grabbed the winning score in the 76th minute.

Andy Kain and Andy Ellis were Featherstone’s other try scorers and Finn finished with three goals and a try, taking his Rovers scoring run to 48 consecutive matches.

Dewsbury’s try scorers were Aaron Brown, Scott Hale and Dale Morton, the latter also kicking four goals.
