  1. No comment from Naylor in the Chron , is he not allowed to with his touch line ban or is he fed up too ?
  2. Think we're being a bit too pessimistic on here, reason we lost today is because Batley are a better side . We are a team of grafters who give their best but when we come up against better players on their game it shows. Today wasn't great but it looked to me as if the player's were trying and being away from Bower Fold mean't we lost our home advantage of playing on a tight pitch with a slope we know well. Didn't like the Manchester Stadium, atmosphere was poor, the pitch was too wide and the viewing across the extra wide running track atrocious. If we continue to work hard opportunities will come and I think Naylor's doing a good job , hope he can find another 7 though given Hewitt's loss of form as we need some craft in the middle of the park.
  3. Let's go for quality ! pre forward Goodway , pre back Des Foy (but Charlie for entertainment) post forward John Hough , post back Sibson post and pre half back Fordy
  4. But was the pitch playable at 12.30pm when the match commissioner should have arrived ? Or did he arrive at 1.30pm to call it off at 1.45pm which was far too late ! I accept Oldham's apology but it still should have been avoided.
  5. Looks to me like Oldham or the ref cocked up because we knew the pitch was in bad order its been talked about on our forum all week and the weather forecast was for heavy rain on Sunday so per RFL rules "In the event that the home Club suspects that its Ground will not be fit for play owing to frost or any other cause, the home Club must immediately call a Match Official who is on a list provided by the RFL Match Officials department prior to the start of the season,to inspect the Ground. " "If, having made such inspection, the Match Official says there is a doubt as to the fitness of the Ground but is not certain that it will be unfit, the home Club must immediately advise the visiting Club and the RFL of the position and the appointed Match Commissioner must be called to inspect the Ground. In such event, the Match Commissioner shall arrive not less than 2½ hours before the advertised time for kick-off" Given the above why did the ref arrive at 1.30pm ? Cancelling a game just over an hour before ko is not fair on the fans, I'll be complaining. http://media.therfl.co.uk/docs/Section B2 - Match Day Rules_2016 - Final PDF.pdf

  7. Yes of course they should have called it off , you can replace the word probably with certainly and that's the reason why !
  8. Have to disagree, the weather forecast predicted heavy rain and if the pitch couldn't take it then the game should have been called off , I like the Dewsbury fans had to travel a fair way to get to the game and a 2pm pitch inspection is too late. Time and £ wasted ..... thanks ORLFC
  9. Thought Hewitt MOM , Sheffield had some units out there including the backline but we stood up well and bossed it in the second half apart from last 10 mins when we tried to run the clock down. Agree Gilly wasted on the wing but competition for places is great, Langers as usual a class act. Like Naylor said we looked like a proper Championship side.
  10. Looks good , at +15 stone he's definitely a centre and he'll get more involved rather than stuck on the wing ........... especially the way we play !
  11. Pardon the pun but being allowed to reform in the Championship is bull**** , we never had that luxury it was straight through the trap door for us , same as with Rangers in Scotland. Shame people lose their jobs but I don't like how Bradford get this favourable treatment, hopefully we won't be on the receiving end when the season finishes !
  12. Yes biggest game for a while, feeling nervous but looking forward to it , hope we're singing " we are staying up" and "your going down with the Town" by the end ! Come on Oldham !!
  13. Agree should be safe...... but if Haven beat Dewsbury away next week then it is game on for them given they play us then Swinton, seen us relegated from similar positions and can't see us winning another game !
  14. Anybody know the match odds , can't find our game on skybet or 365 ?
  15. Yes shame , below link to a NWC youtube video on Joe Burke , sounds like a Naylor type of player, at the end of the video he scores a rampaging try ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a93b3TCIEY
