North Wales Crusaders 54-10 Oxford RLFC
Crusaders breeze past Oxford
Leon Brennan scored a hat-trick of tries as North Wales Crusaders closed the gap on Kingstone Press Championship 1 leaders Oldham with a comfortable 54-10 victory over Oxford.
Simon Stephens went over for a seventh-minute try for the hosts and Tommy Johnson added the extras but two tries in three minutes from Shaun Robinson, the first of which Jonny Leather converted, handed Oxford a 10-6 advantage.
But from that point on is was all Crusaders as first Steve Bannister and then Rob Massam went over to give Crusaders an 18-10 half-time lead.
It was one-way traffic after the interval as Brennan ran in his hat-trick of tries to add to further scores from Stephens, Massam and Bannister and Johnson took his tally to nine goals.
