Dupree stars as Oldham make progress

Date published: 22 March 2021

Former Leeds Rhinos youngster Tyler Dupree played a star role as Championship side Oldham stormed into the second round of the Betfred Challenge Cup with a 20-6 win against League 1 side Barrow Raiders at Bower Fold.

Prop forward Dupree (21) came off the bench to terrorise Barrow's pack in the second half as Oldham took control after leading 12-6 at half-time.

Fellow forward Shaun Pick, hooker Gareth Owen and second-row pair Danny Langtree and Danny Bridge also had big games for Oldham, while left wing Ryan Shaw scored an exciting, long-range try for Raiders.

Stand-off Lewis Charnock, Langtree and winger Tommy Brierley scored Oldham's tries with full-back Dan Abram kicking our goals.
