Oldham duo in team of the week

Date published: Monday, June 10, 2013

ROUGHYEDS duo Richard Lepori and Adam Files are named in the Premier Sports Championship One team of the week  following their outstanding performances in our 22-20 defeat by North Wales Crusaders in Wrexham.

We gained a vital bonus point, which could prove crucial in the end-of-season jostle for position, especially so when considering that we have not finished empty handed in any of our seven league games played to date.

We have won four and lost three, but in the case of each defeat we have qualified for a bonus point, which equates to three points — or another win.

Rochdale prop Warren Thompson was named Premier Sports player of the week after scoring two tries in a 42-28 win at Oxford, one of which also earned him the try of the week billing.
