Callum Phillips inspired Whitehaven to an impressive 4-36 victory over Oldham on Saturday afternoon with the hooker scoring four tries for Gary Charlton’s men.
Oldham opened the scoring through Callum Green after 30 minutes however Whitehaven would hit back with six unanswered tries as they cruised to victory in the Betfred Championship.
Liam Cooper and Jessie Joe-Parker both took advantage of errors from Oldham to score either side of half-time.
Phillips soon crossed for his first of the game as Whitehaven took control before the hooker added three more in the second half. His third was the pick of the bunch as he finished a flowing team move.
The victory is Whitehaven’s second of the season in the Betfred Championship and sees them climb above Oldham and into 8th in the league table.
