UNDERBANK put an end to their poor record against Warrington Wizards in the Conference National by drawing 28-28 at The Cross.
It is the first time in 13 attempts Rangers have taken points off the Wizards.
The Holmfirth-based side were also subjected to a 54-14 defeat by their opponents in the play-off semi-final in September.
Rangers moved into sixth position in the Conference National after the result.
Coach Ritchie Hawkyard, reflecting on the draw, said: “It was a lot better performance by the lads than that shown in the defeat at Liverpool last week.
“We were unlucky not to win (against Warrington).”
Despite sharing the points with the Wizards, who sit in third spot, Hawkyard’s men have managed only one win in their last seven league fixtures.
And their latest result is the third time they have drawn a fixture this season.
In the game against Warrington, it was the visitors who made the best start and were rewarded after15 minutes with a try scored by Shaun Daley. Chris Mellor converted.
Rangers worked their way back into the fixture seven minutes later when man-of-the-match Arran Crabtree spotted space out wide to exploit the Wizards’ defence.
He supplied a pass to Richard Flooks who dashed over the line and touched down for the first of his two tries in the game.
Flooks also added the conversion.
Rangers winger Will Midgley fumbled the following kick-off and the visitors then executed a well-worked scrum, which set up an easy try for Ian Stephenson. Matt Wilson converted.
Stephenson grabbed his second try on 27 minutes, once more capitalising on sloppy Underbank play. Mellor added the kick.
The hosts were made to lick their wounds again when Alan Reddicliffe intercepted a Rangers pass and raced 90m to score an impressive try. Mellor converted.
Just when the thought of gaining a positive result appeared to be moving away from Underbank’s reach, Flooks touched down for his second try after 39 minutes.
Similar to the opening 40, the second half provided plenty of drama for The Cross crowd.
Notably, this included Rangers’ Carl Leach and Matt Garside both being sin-binned for two separate punching incidents.
After 56 minutes, Billy Sheen charged up through the middle of the field and supplied a precise kick out wide.
The Wizards’ Ian Stephenson gathered and crossed the tryline to complete his hat trick. Mellor missed his conversion attempt.
But showing a determined spirit, Rangers battled back courtesy of tries from Chris Lodge, Garry Keegan and full-back Brook York.
With just two minutes remaining and the scores level, Flooks attempted a drop goal to win the game for the home side.
His effort was charged down and both sides had to settle for a draw.
