Date published: Thursday, March 14, 2013

OLDHAM RL boss Scott Naylor is keen to see how his young side will cope with opponents from a higher division in the third round of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup.

Roughyeds will take on Kingstone Press Championship side Hunslet Hawks at the South Leeds Stadium on Sunday, April 7, kick-off 3pm.
Said club chairman Chris Hamilton: “We’ll give it our best shot.
“Scott (Naylor) sees the tie as a great opportunity for us to assess where we stand when paired with a team from the Championship.
“We will give it 100 per cent and see what happens.”
Admission prices will be £12 adults, £6 concessions and £3 under-16s.
The last time the teams met was at Whitebank in the opening game of the 2011 Northern Rail Cup when Oldham triumphed 28-22.
Centre Jack Bradbury (2), hooker John Clough, scrum-half Mick Diveney and winger John Gillam scored the Roughyeds tries, while Diveney landed four goals.
Team: Heaton; Onyango, Wood, Bradbury, Gillam; N Roden, Diveney; Sutton, M Roden, Ellison, Isherwood, Noone, Clarke. Subs: Bentley, Clough, Wood-Hulme, Boults.
Two years on, half-back Neil Roden and prop Jason Boults are the only players who are still at the club.
