Oldham St Annes 32 Rylands Sharks 28

RYLANDS were narrowly beaten in a close fought game at Oldham in the North West Men’s league Division Two on Saturday.

Oldham opened the scoring after just two minutes before Rylands hit straight back with a 30 metre try from Dave Walker.

A Sharks try from Luke Walker and two from Oldham soon after saw the sides level when Oldham decided to kick a penalty and take a slender 14-12 lead.

Dave Walker crossed for his second in the 35th minute before Oldham grabbed two more tries shortly before half time to go in 24-18 at the break.

St Annes added a further eight points in the opening minutes of the second half before a try from Jack Cosgrove and a second of the game for Luke Walker clawed the Sharks back to within four points.

Despite a late push by the away side, Oldham held out for the win.

Sharks: Luke Walker; Vinny Yearsley, Ben Kenwright, Jack Hancock, Danny Hoyland; Jack Lewis, Dave Walker; Matty Burns, Louis Walsh, Mike Lagar, Lewis Litherland, Sam Hughes, Jack Cosgrove. Subs: Jack Sherratt, Matty Wilson, Tony Fretwell, Mark McArdle.
