Six minutes later, the Broncos doubled their advantage, as Jarrod Sammut marked his return to the side with a try. Hankinson scored the conversion.

Oldham struck back just past the first quarter, as Luke Nelmes got over for his first try since his return to the club. Callum Green scored the conversion to half the deficit.

But the capital side were able to stretch their lead just past the half-hour after Daniel Hindmarsh managed to crash over. Hankinson added the conversion to give them their 12-point lead back going into half-time.

Just like in the first half, Egodo managed to grab the first try, as he went over four minutes into the second half. Hankinson added the conversion.

Just a couple of minutes later, Sammut intercepted and ran through to get over for his second try of the afternoon. Hankinson added the conversion.

Oldham claimed their second try of the day just past the hour mark, as Jack Bibby, on loan from Wigan Warriors, crashed over for the try. Green converted to keep Oldham in the match.

With 10 minutes to go, London pulled further clear as Egodo ran through to complete his hat-trick. Hankinson was off-target with the conversion for the first time.

The visitors refused to lie down, and got their third try from the next play, with Bibby getting over for a second. Green scored the conversion.

Oldham would score a fourth try before the end, as experienced halfback Dave Hewitt added his name to the scoresheet. Green converted to bring the Roughyeds back within 10 points.

The final word would got to London, with Josh Walters getting over for his first try of the season. Hankinson missed the conversion, but it did not matter.
