Rochdale Hornets 26-26 Oldham RLFC

Xamax Team Rankings


A late Rochdale Hornets double-salvo salvaged a 26-26 draw from the jaws of defeat against Oldham at the Crown Oil Arena.

Alan Kilshaw’s men faced a 26-14 deficit with five minutes to go before Gavin Bennion and Ryan Maneely both touched down for converted tries to bring the scores level.

The hosts had a 14-6 lead at the break and it took two minutes for them to break the deadlock through Ben Moores. Jordan Walne responded soon after with a four pointer on debut for Oldham but Rochdale took control of proceedings later on in the half with two consecutive scores in as many minutes. Josh Crowley and Jack Holmes were the try-scorers for Rochdale, who have been the surprise package in the Championship thus far following their brilliant start to the campaign.

Oldham took the lead on 50 minutes after Adam Clay and Tuoyo Egodo both crossed the whitewash and things got even better in the final quarter. Michael Ward touched down for the Roughyeds and when Scott Leatherbarrow added the extras and also kicked a penalty goal, that looked to be game over. But the Hornets don’t know when they’re beaten and late tries from Bennion and Maneely proved that. Lewis Palfrey converted on both occasions, completing the comeback.
