Oldham RLFC 28-48 Batley Bulldogs

Report

Batley Bulldogs put an end to their poor run of form with a great win over Oldham at Manchester Regional Arena. The Bulldogs won the second half 26-6 against Oldham as Matt Diskin’s men ran away with a two vital competition points. Dom Brambani had an eventful afternoon with a sin-binning, a try and then a red card in the dying embers of the game. Oldham’s Adam Clay bagged a first half hat-trick but was unable to lead his side to a victory.

The match got off to a frantic start with six tries scored inside the opening 20 minutes. Clay and Adam Neal bagged a try apiece as Oldham went 10-0 up before the Bulldogs soon levelled matters through Danny Cowling and Joel Farrell. Clay then completed his hat-trick with tries in the 15th and 20th minute but once again Batley responded. Alistair Leak and Adam Gledhill notched four pointers each as the two sides went into half-time all square at 22-22. However, the last minute of the first period saw Brambani go to the sin-bin for a trip.

The Bulldogs took the lead after the restart, and in the absence of the scrum-half, thanks to a Wayne Reittie. Once Brambani returned, he made an instant impact by extending his side’s lead. Cain Southernwood kicked a penalty goal to make it 36-22 before James Harrison and Tom Lillycrop wrapped up the win with tries either side of the hour mark. The final score of the game went the way of Danny Grimshaw, with the Roughyeds capitalising on their numerical advantage following Brambani’s dismissal for dissent.
