Kingstone Press Championship Preview

Report

Kieran Gill was the hero of the hour for Oldham as his late try won the game for Oldham against Bradford Bulls at Bower Fold. Tuoyo Egodo made the initial break before Gill showed some great footwork to get over the whitewash.

Oldham scored the opening try of the game through Adam Neal after six minutes but two tries in three minutes for Lee Smith and James Bentley flipped the scoreline soon after. Ethan Ryan extended the Bulls’ advantage on 36 minutes but Oldham ended up cutting into the deficit before the break courtesy of Danny Langtree.

Bradford’s 14-12 half-time lead stayed intact until the final quarter when Joe Keyes touched down and it looked like a long way back for Oldham, although it was only two scores. Egodo set up a nervy finish with a try on 66 minutes before the hosts levelled matters with a Scott Leatherbarrow penalty. Jordan Lilley put Bradford back in front with a penalty before heartbreak hit for the West Yorkshire side, when Gill touched down to the delight of the home crowd.
