ALTHOUGH the Christmas break had been longer than usual the Atoms started their 2011 campaign where they finished off in 2010 with an excellent victory away in St Helens.
On a better than expected playing surface the Atoms started like a runaway train and never really looked back.
The first set of six usually sets the tone for the game and the Atoms had first use of the ball.
The forwards smashed their way up field with McVernon and Liam Hall well to the fore. It only took one more set to unlock Pilkington’s defence.
Billy Livingstone ran the ball on the last and looked to have been stopped short of the line.
