Whitehaven have crashed out of the 1895 Cup after Oldham racked up a barrage of points this afternoon.

It is Oldham going into tonight's second round draw after they pulled off a pretty convincing 48-12 win over a reshuffled Whitehaven side, missing some key players.

Whitehaven got off to the worst possible start as Oldham's Danny Langtree got over the line in the first minute to inflict a cruel blow. And with Paul Crook adding the extras the home side were on the up.

Soon it was 12-0 as Richie Hawkyard was the next man to get through the Haven defence and touch down, with Crook again converting after six minutes.

But then Haven took their chance to get back into the game as Jordan Burns capitalised on a loose ball and kicked it ahead where Jake Carter was the man who collected and sidestepped to cross the line. Jake Moore tagged on the extras and the deficit was cut back to six points.

The scoring then began to slow down and it wasn't until the 28th minute when Oldham managed to extend their lead as Matty Wilkinson spotted a gap and went over the try line, with Crook converting.

Haven got a crucial score six minutes before the break to peg back their hosts as Dion Aiye put in a quick offload to Conor Holliday and he stepped past Hawkyard to score, and added his own goal to bring the scoreline back to 18-12.

But before the hooter could sound for half time, Oldham had restored their 12 point advantage as winger Kyran Johnson skipped through the visiting defence to score under the posts.

Crook made no mistake from right in front of the posts and it was Oldham who go in at the break ahead, with Whitehaven knowing they have to chase the game in the second half.

It got worse for Whitehaven as the second half got under way and it was Oldham again who began on top and Wilkinson crossed for his second of the afternoon, with Crook still accurate with the boot to make it 30-12.

Then the visitors were handed another blow as they have to see out 10 minutes without Dave Thompson when he was sent to cool his heels in the sin bin.

Two tries in quick succession then seemed to seal the game for Oldham. First Jack Holmes touched down and then it was Haven's former star Paul Crook that came back to bite them.

Oldham took advantage of a the bounce of the ball and quick hands allowed Crook to dot the ball down. He also converted both tries to take the score out to 42-12 and it then looked like game over for the travellers.

It was starting to look like a procession to the line and Holmes bagged his second of the afternoon, with Crook kicking his eighth from eight attempts to wrap up the scoring just short of the half century mark at 48-12.
