Salford Red Devils prop-forward Daniel Murray featured this weekend for dual-registration partners Oldham RLFC in a 32-18 victory over Keighley Cougars at the Vestacare Stadium.
The Roughyeds raced into a 16-0 lead against the Cougars but the Yorkshiremen pulled it back to 16-14 heading into the interval. However, a dominant second half display saw Oldham run out comfortable winners.
Wakefield loanee Lee Kershaw scored twice alongside tries from Dave Eccleston, Kieran Gill and former Red Devil Liam Bent. Murray was in the thick of the action down the middle for Oldham.
Meanwhile, Gavin Bennion and Levy Nzoungou where both in action for Betfred Championship side Swinton Lions as they fell to a 18-12 defeat at the hands of Halifax RLFC.
Andy Thornley put Swinton in the lead early on before Chester Butler had put the hosts within two points. Marcus Webb’s 50th minute try furthered Swinton’s lead but late tries from Conor McGrath and a second from Steve Tyrer sealed the victory for Halifax. Tyrer had also begun the Halifax comeback midway through the second half.
Swinton Lions Head Coach and former Red Devil Stuart Littler said: “Levy [Nzoungou] is a handful. Him and Gav [Bennion] set the game and took us forward. He’s a big guy.”
Swinton welcome Toulouse Olympique next weekend with both Gavin Bennion and Levy Nzoungou available and you can watch this game completely free of charge with the Lions allowing free entry for any fans wishing to attend.
