Hull KR overcame a major scare to edge Halifax 26-22 in a thrilling Qualifiers Super 8s opener at KCOM Craven Park.
In-form Halifax secured their place in the Qualifiers by beating Kingstone Press Championship leaders Hull KR on the final day of the regular season and Ben Heaton's four tries left them on course for another stunning victory.
But Rovers dug deep to overturn a 22-14 deficit and make a winning start in their bid for an immediate return to Betfred Super League.
There was no sign of the drama to come when full-back Kieren Moss crossed twice in the opening seven minutes and Matty Marsh cancelled out Heaton's 10th-minute try to give Rovers a 14-6 lead.
But Heaton completed his hat-trick before the half-hour mark and then went over again in the early stages of the second half to leave Hull KR chasing the match.
George Lawler's converted try made it a two-point game heading into the closing stages and Nick Scruton touched down six minutes from time to deny Fax a famous win.
