It looks like OLDHAM will be playing OLDHAM this season if Tony Benson carries on with his signings.

Oxford move for All Gold

Oxford RL ranks grew again today with confirmation of the signing of 23 year old Nath Rainer.
Rainer who is a robust prop and can also play second row joins from the University of Gloucestershire All Golds. He has also represented Wales RL students where he played in the 2012 Student Rugby League Four Nations Tournament.
On joining Oxford Nath said, "I am very happy to be joining Oxford as my first professional team. Oxford has an experienced board with equally experienced coaches to help develop me as a player to send me in the right direction.
"Already Oxford, and especially Tony Benson, has shown great support since I have signed which has been very encouraging. All the ingredients needed to make a great, successful club are there which I hope I can contribute to. I’m very much looking forward to pre season to meet up with the squad and get the Championship One campaign underway."
Coach Tony Benson said of his latest recruit, "He did really well in the trials, ran with the ball a lot and supported the runners. He worked very hard defensively, is big and powerful and has room to offload. I was very impressed with him and he has a big future ahead of him."


Nath played for the Sonics last summer. Good lad. He told me about this proposed move before Christmas - good to see it come off.

I am starting to get excited about this. Is there a Danish Supporters Group yet, or will I have to start it?

Oxford recruitment drive gathers pace

Oxford are delighted to announce the signing of 18 year old Centre Scott Critchley. Scott who has played for Oxfordshire Rugby Union and RGC 1404 in his short playing career so far.

Scott was thrilled to have joined the club and said, "I am really happy to have joined Oxford as I believe this is exciting times to have a club like this in a city that loves its rugby. This was one of the easiest decisions I've ever made and I can't wait to learn from both the coaches and my teammates, I think we can do some great things this year and I can't wait to pull on the jersey and walk out onto the Iffley road pitch.

"My aims this year are to nail down a starting place in the team and stay there week in week out and to keep getting better and better."

Scott is the son of former Welsh league international Jason Critchley who's playing career included spells for Widnes, Salford, Castleford and Wakefield.

Roden flies into Oxford

Oxford's ranks grew further today with the capture of hooker Martin Roden. Roden made 15 appearances last season for the Oldham Roughyeds and also had a spell in charge for the final four games as caretaker coach.
The former Wigan and Leigh player will combine a playing role along with being the club’s Assistant and Fitness coach.
“I'm delighted to be part of Oxford RL, Rugby League is in my blood and to be given an opportunity to be part of something historic in Oxford is an honour and I’m looking forward to working with the club’s partners on the fitness and analysis side.”
Roden, who has a degree in sports science and works full-time in his own gym, added, "My professional background is in fitness, I've worked as a player under some top coaches but the thought of our link with Wakefield Wildcats and Oxford Brookes University is very exciting.”
The added advantage of Roden’s skills to the squad as a player/coach, is his ability to personalise and tailor specific sports science for an individual so it benefits both player and the team as a whole.

PROUD TO BE A MEMBER OF http://www.rugbyleaguecares.org/ and http://www.walesrugb...-wales-for-2013
Predictions for the future -
Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

I'm not sure where Hemel will get a Championship 1 standard side from either. At least they're very well run in other respects.

Without splashing the cash IMO Hemel are in the better position long term.
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Hull FC must have been 3 decades in front of the RFL when they wanted to play their `A` team (Out of Goole) in what is now the chapionship
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

very few of those from the last couple of years. Tbh those players and tony Benson weren't able to deliver. Oldham is now in a stronger position with new younger, more eager players under Naylor. Good luck to Oxford, but can't see those ex oldhamians doing any better than the last couple of seasons. Will be a good game whenwe play themthough. They'll be up for it.
