OLDHAM RLFC 74 HEMEL STAGS 6

SCOTT Naylor’s Oldham moved three places up the Betfred League 1 table to fourth with their 13-try demolition job on a plucky Hemel Stags side at the Vestacare Stadium.

Paul Crook’s 11-goal haul was the biggest since Steve Roper kicked 12 in a 76-12 romp at Oxford on the last day of the regular season in 2015.

And the winning margin of 68 points was the best since the 80-6 battering of Welsh side Blackwood in the third round of the Challenge Cup eight years ago.

Sharing the 13 tries in Roughyeds’ fourth win on the bounce were centre Zack McCombe (3), Danny Bridge (2), Luke Nelmes (2), Kyran Johnson (2), Gareth Owen, Ben West, Matty Wilkinson and dual-reg forward Gavin Bennion.

Hat-trick man McComb was named the home side’s man of the match, but he must have been run close by peerless back-row forward Danny Langtree, who is enjoying a magnificent season.
