Betfred League One Round Up | Round 9

Betfred League One Round Up | Round 9

There were four hefty score-lines in Round 9 of Betfred League One as Oldham and Keighley sit level on points at the top of the table following their impressive wins over Cornwall and North Wales Crusaders.

The Cougars returned to winning ways on Sunday in a tight encounter at Colwyn Bay - before three late tries would seal the win for the visitors.

Oldham remain the only third tier team to have a 100% unbeaten run in 2024, as they made it back-to-back wins over Cornwall.

Over at the Alexander Stadium, Midlands Hurricanes bounced back from their defeat to the Choughs last weekend with a huge win over Newcastle Thunder. Liam Welham starred in the hosts' performance and made history in the process, by becoming the first Canes player to score four tries in a single game.

Elsewhere, Rochdale move up to third place following a ten try win over Workington. For the second week running, the Hornets racked up 56 points against their opposition as the top end of the table starts hotting up.
