Wing pair looking good

Date published: Thursday, June 5, 2014

DAMAGED thumb or not, Dale Bloomfield will be desperate to play at Hemel Stags on Sunday to maintain his scoring run on Oldham’s left wing.

Like Mo Agoro on the right flank, ‘Bloomers’ is seeing a lot more of the ball this season as a direct result of the Roughyeds’ more expansive style of play.
Both wingers are scoring freely and playing with a smile on their face as the men on the inside work to orders and use the full width of the pitch.
Bloomfield has scored in each of Oldham’s last three games.
His yield against York City Knights, Gloucester All Golds and London Skolars was 3 + 1 + 1, taking his total in the league to 10 from nine outings. 
He lies joint second in the Championship One list behind 11-try Jason Payne of Gateshead Thunder, but more significantly Oldham are not yet at the half-way stage of their league programme and he requires only one more try to equal his tally for the whole of last season.
“So far, so good, but I’d like to double the number of tries I scored last year and that’s my target,” said the former Rochdale winger, who knocked up a thumb when doing a spot of defensive work near the end of the London game.
A decision on whether he will travel to Hertfordshire may be made at training tonight or left until the final session of the week on Saturday.
Agoro, also in a rich vein of form, has scored six tries in the last five games.
He has seven in total and is only two short of matching his tally for all last season.
“I like to think I’m coming to terms with senior rugby now,” said the former Leeds Rhinos academy player.
“If I keep growing as a player and helping my team mates to win matches that will do me.”
Oldham go to Hemel seeking their fifth win in a row.
