Roughyeds wish it to be known that Joe Chandler has left the club to join Halifax RLFC and that he goes with the very best wishes of the Oldham club.

Joe had an impressive first season at Co-operative Championship One level and Roughyeds would like to acknowledge their appreciation of that while pointing out that they are delighted to have helped him on his way up the ladder to join the Championship Grand Final winners.

Coming from the Leeds Rhinos academy stable, Joe had to make the transition to regular first-team rugby and Roughyeds believe he is a more complete footballer now, having had the experience of a season of senior open-age rugby under Tony Benson.

Roughyeds believe this demonstrates once again that the club is a progressive one, possessing the coach, backroom staff and positive outlook which can bring out the best in young players and aid their development.
