Good advice regarding the sun and most important of all - BE THERE!
To be honest, the present set-up of players and coaching staff, is THE most exciting and refreshing I have seen at Oldham in many years. Yes, we have had had some good spells in recent seasons that gave us all hopes of success in the Grand Finals but for all the experience in those set-ups there was always that nagging doubt that 'something was missing' when it came to the 'crunch'. Now, it feels different with a young, talented and enthusiastic side who are prepared to give 100% in every game. The fitness levels are absolutely outstanding, they have the desire to improve their game week by week and they quite clearly enjoy playing together. The loan players too, are blending in well and adding their own strengths and qualities to the side, so maintaining the performance levels of the whole squad.
Now is the time for all fans of the Roughyeds to stand up and be counted by showing their support for these lads on Sunday as they hopefully go to the top of Championship 1, with an exciting few weeks ahead. They really DO deserve it.
On Friday night there is also another good reason to be down at Whitebank with the U/20's side taking on Salford and that should be another cracking game of rugby league to watch after some thrilling performances already this season.
So, let's all enjoy the weather and cheer on the Roughyeds as well this weekend.
COME ON THE YEDS!
