Official Report / Commentary


Oldham fight back to claim win

Oldham came from 12-0 down to beat Swinton Lions 26-24 in their mid-table clash at Stalybridge and make it three wins in a row.

The Lions, who had already beaten Oldham twice this year, made a flying start with two early tries by Ben White, improved by Chris Atkin, but an interception try by centre Kieran Gill kept the home side in the game and they turned it on its head with two tries in three minutes by substitute prop Michael Ward at the start of the second half.

Lewis Palfrey\'s third goal gave the Roughyeds an 18-14 lead and, although Macauley Hallett added a third try for the visitors, Adam Clay\'s try sealed Oldham\'s win, rendering Josh Barlow\'s late try a mere consolation.
