Spoke to Mike after the game and he said was more than happy for result to stand. Said players were a credit and was no way he would force a reply. Said was pleased with his lads and will build on that

The result Will stand and Bloomfield said he was suffering from hypothermia the conditions were unbelievable it was virtually unplayable tbh


You lot must be getting soft since you moved from Watersheddings , Now that was a bloody cold place. Second coldest game I ever went to was there one Boxing Day. Coldest was a cup game at York in a blizzard. My mate had a hip flask of whiskey that saved our lives.

Boundary Park in the Challenge Cup against Castleford. We were there because Watersheddings was frozen solid. I vaguely remember the Castleford physio running through our line of play and knocking the ball to the ground in the dying moments, just when it looked like we could steal the game. The rest of the team had to pull Andy Goodway off him when the hooter went.

Roughyeds have been awarded the win.

Credit to South Wales, and to Mike for supporting the decision. Tremendous sporting decision, especially as the opportunity for the extra point meant plenty to play for, if not the result.

(And to JohnnyG for the scooop)

I remember that game as well. The scoreboard was at one end of the ground, behind the sticks and underneath it was an eight foot high slatted fence with roughly two inch gaps, and me and my mates were stood behind this fence to keep the icy wind off and watching the game through the gaps with mugs of Bovril in hand. I also recall going to HKR one evening soon after they had moved to the new ground. The wind was blowing off the North Sea and it was freezing cold. I had on a thick leather jacket with a suit jacket underneath and on the way home I kept them on and had the car heater on full blast, I was still cold as I came down the hill towards Milnrow on the M62. The coldest I can remember playing in was against Hornets either on Boxing Day or New Years Day on the old Athletic Ground. Later that day I went for a pint in The Sportsmans which used to be on the corner of Featherstall Road and Chadderton Road and I was still so cold I sat in front of the coal fire all night. Happy days.

Thank you :)
He was upset that they couldn't get bonus point but said credit to the players in conditions and after the off field issues in pre season was more than happy with the scoreline

I remember reading a story in my paper entitled " My worst away day ". It was about a QPR fan who'd travelled up to Boundary Park one Boxing Day for a game. He was already suffering a dose of mild flu. During the second half the poor guy collapsed on the terraces and was taken to the nearby hospital. He developed pneumonia and ended up staying there for a week !

Guys, our official pub has complemented the Oldham fans. They said you were a great bunch, could put them away, and were well behaved throughout. So nice one.


About time I updated this.
