Oldham 58 South Wales Scoprions 2

Date published: Monday, June 16, 2014
SOUTH Wales felt the full backlash from our poor performance at Hemel when we performed highly professionally in both attack and defence to beat them 58-2 at Whitebank.

They never seriously threatened a try, such was our willingness to graft and work for each other off the ball, while we ran in ten tries and piled up our second biggest total of points in a single game since Scott Naylor arrived at the club a season and half ago.
This will certainly have done our ‘for and against’ record a bit of good in what is clearly going to be a terrific battle over the second half of the season to finish in the top two.
We are still unbeaten at Whitebank this season, having won five and drawn one of our six home league games so far this year.
For the record, Danny Langtree couldn’t play against South Wales because of a one-match RFL ban so George Tyson moved from bench to second-row and Ben Wood was added to the substitutes — the only changes those from the Hemel game.
Mo Agoro led the try-fest with a hat-trick, Wood chipped in with a brace and others were scored by Steve Nield (a cracking individual try from out of his own half), Kenny Hughes, Dale Bloomfield (who was making his 100th career appearance), Lewis Palfrey and Jon Ford.
Lewis kicked beautifully to convert nine out of ten conversions as we maintained the pressure on the top two, Hunslet and York.
We led 18-2 at half-time and then took full advantage of the slope in the second half to pile up 40 more points at the rate of one a minute.
Team: Nield; Agoro, Cookson, Ford, Bloomfield; Roper, Palfrey; Joy, Whitmore, Boults, Crowley, Tyson, Gee. Subs: Hughes, Ward, Wood, Mason.
