THE Oldham RLFC versus Bradford Bulls game, postponed on March 6 because of snow, has been rearranged for Wednesday, June 15 (8pm kick-off) at Bower Fold.
WHEN Featherstone Rovers come to Bower Fold on Sunday (3pm), Scott Naylor will be looking to Oldham to showcase the form that stung Batley Bulldogs and Sheffield Eagles in the Roughyeds last two games at the Stalybridge venue.
They followed up with that sensational Ladbrokes Challenge Cup win at Hull KR, but then let their standards slip when returning to KP Championship action at Whitehaven, where they went down 14-6.
AFTER a team performance at Whitehaven which he described as “a bit flat”, Oldham RL boss Scott Naylor took the softly, softly approach . . . and gave his players a well-earned break.
Last night’s training session was cancelled.
And after beating full-time opponents in two of their last three games, including Super League outfit Hull KR away in the Cup, the Roughyeds’ part-timers were given a night off and told to chill.
AIMING for their third home win in a row this weekend, Oldham will be anxiously checking on the fitness of several players at tonight’s training session.
Danny Langtree, the latest victim, was carried off with a damaged ankle at Whitehaven and he won’t be alone when the club’s medical team get to work on the walking wounded.
Kenny Hughes and Jamel Chisholm, who have sore ribs, didn’t play in Cumbria but they will be assessed at regular intervals this week in the hope that they will be available for Sunday’s evenly-balanced contest with Featherstone Rovers (3pm).
FANS who want to actively support Oldham Rugby League Club will be interested to know that the Oldham Roughyeds Supporters Association (ORSA) is to stage a Family Fun and Quiz Night this Friday, April 29, at the Higginshaw ARLFC, otherwise known as St Stephen’s Social Club.
It starts at 8pm and admission is £1 per person. Prizes can be won and there’s a jackpot prize of £160 plus raffle. Sandwiches will be available and all are welcome.
