Swinton Lions 26-4 Oldham RLFC


Swinton Lions bounced back from their Summer Bash defeat to Sheffield Eagles by comfortably beating Oldham at Heywood Road. John Duffy’s men were in control of proceedings and got their reward with a victory which steers them ten points clear of 12th-placed Bradford Bulls. The hosts were 12-0 up at the break after tries scored from centres Rhodri Lloyd and Chris Hankinson, with Chris Atkin converting on both occasions.

Atkin extended Swinton’s lead after the break with a penalty goal before two tries in as many minutes during the final quarter calmed any nerves. Jack Murphy touched down on 67 minutes before Hankinson completed his brace to seal the win for the Lions. However, Swinton did finish the game with 11 men after Josh Barlow and Murphy were sin-binned for dangerous contact and a professional foul respectively in the final eight minutes. In-between those yellow cards came Oldham’s only try of the game courtesy of Richard Lepori.
