THERE was no stopping Oldham’s victory surge today when they dominated Doncaster for nearly all the game to win 32-12 — their sixth league win in a row.
It was 32-6 until virtually the last kick of the game when a speculative kick downfield led to Doncaster’s second try.
The whole Oldham team played well but there were stand-out individual performances from full-back Luke Hooley and forwards Phil Joy, Danny Bridge and Luke Nelmes.
As a unit, Oldham’s pack was immense and none did better than Bridge, who saved one of his best performances of the year for a match which, pre-game, both clubs described as “massive”.
Oldham led 16-0 at half-time with tries by Danny Langtree and Hooley and four goals by Paul Crook.
In the second half there were further tries by Nelmes, Lee Kershaw and Joy with two more goals by Crook.
“It was a great performance from 1 to 17,” summed up head coach Scott Naylor.
