Oldham RLFC 12-30 Halifax RLFC


Halifax have temporarily cut the gap between themselves and the top four to just one point after today’s 30-12 win over Oldham at Bower Fold. The West Yorkshire club kept their opponents to a blank in the first half but a fightback from the hosts meant Richard Marshall’s side had to show their class to get over the winning line.

The visitors were 12-0 up at the break following tries from Will Sharp and Brandon Douglas. Steve Tyrer was on target from the tee on both occasions.

Oldham came smoothly out of the blocks in the second half as Scott Turner cut the deficit to eight points before Michael Ward’s converted try made it a two point game. A penalty from Scott Leatherbarrow levelled matters which sparked Halifax back into life and they had enough to win the spoils. Sharp and Brandon Moore both notched quick-fire tries before Tyrer improved on his two conversions with a penalty goal. Things looked comfortable for Halifax as they had a three score lead and they put the icing on the cake in the final minutes thanks to Elliot Morris’ try.
