Dewsbury Rams 24-28 Oldham RLFC


Dewsbury Rams suffered a second half collapse as they threw away a 24-6 half-time lead to lose 28-24 against Oldham at Tetley’s Stadium. The Roughyeds scored four tries without reply during the final 40 minutes to record an improbable win after staring down the barrel at the interval.

Oldham broke the deadlock on six minutes through prop forward Adam Neal but that proved to be their only try of the first half as Dewsbury gained control. Andy Kain, Robbie Ward and Paul Sykes all touched down within five minutes of each other to turn the game on its head, albeit still in the early stages. James Glover scored Dewsbury’s fourth – and final – try of the game on 35 minutes. Sykes landed all four conversions.

In the second half Michael Ward started the comeback for the visitors with a 45th minute try, followed by a Kieran Gill four pointer with the final quarter on the horizon. Scott Leatherbarrow couldn’t add the extras to Gill’s try, meaning there was still two scores between the teams but that didn’t deter Oldham who cut the deficit to two points thanks to George Tyson. The killer blow for the Rams came seven minutes from time as Joe Burke crossed the whitewash. A superb show of character from Oldham, who took advantage of a shellshocked Dewsbury side.
