Oldham RLFC 24-32 Hull Kingston Rovers


Oldham put up a great fight against Hull Kingston Rovers at Bower Fold but came up just short as the table-toppers won 32-24. Three tries in the opening 12 minutes gave Oldham a healthy advantage but the Robins went on to outscore the hosts six tries to one throughout the rest of the match. Joe Wardill and Ryan Shaw both bagged braces for Tim Sheens’ side as the former staked a positive claim for a permanent spot in the first team.

Joe Burke and Dave Hewitt both touched down for the Roughyeds before Sam Wood also crossed the whitewash. Scott Leatherbarrow converted all three tries to put Scott Naylor’s men 18-0 up. The Rovers cut the deficit to two points by half-time thanks to scores courtesy of Shaun Lunt, Jordan Abdull and Wardill. Jamie Ellis struck two conversions but was unable to add the extras to Wardill’s try.

The second half started as the first ended, with a try for the Robins. Ryan Shaw extended his try tally for the year by finding his way to the chalk as the full-timers gained their first lead of the contest. Ellis converted for a four point advantage and things got better when Wardill and Shaw both completed their braces within five minutes of each other. Despite being three scores down, the Roughyeds didn’t pack their bags and they had the final say of the match as Darnell McIntosh scored his side’s fourth – and final – try of the game.
