Roughyeds Impressive Win at Doncaster

Date published: 19 August 2019

Oldham kept up the pressure on leaders Whitehaven at the top of Betfred League 1 with an impressive seven-try win against Doncaster at the Vestacare Stadium.

With two to play the Cumbrians are firm favourites to finish top and go up to the Championship automatically, but with exhilarating wins against Newcastle and Doncaster in successive weeks, Roughyeds have posted notice that they'll push them all the way.

Tries by Liam Bent, Ritchie Hawkyard, Danny Langtree, Paul Crook, Cameron Leeming, Matty Wilkinson and club skipper Gareth Owen, plus six conversions by Crook gave the home side a 40-14 win to avenge two previoua defeats by Donny this season.

The three top teams -- Whitehaven, Oldham and Newcastle -- all won so there's no change at the top.
