  1. I note they got The Hornets in Championship one in the article....
  2. Law cup week 😁

    Victory 28-24 paul crook outstanding...excellent commentary on Love rugby league!
  3. Rochdale Looking For Payment Reductions

    Greedy Elite...just like Football and Rugby Yawnion....
  4. Rochdale Looking For Payment Reductions

    They don`t come now perhaps because Oldham are now firmly established (for a whole host of reasons) as third tier part time... The lads try..but believe me it isn`t the same as it once was...not even close. Past Greatness seems further off than ever now...Its hard to take is that! I know cos I was there! (as was my Dad, his workmates, my three sisters my brother, my girlfriend, and a fair few mates.) It felt GOOD to be an Oldham Fan...We so nearly beat the Aussie superstar test team...what a night that was! we beat the pies...Paddy Kirwan, robbed by the Beardmores. beaten single handedly by the great Wally Lewis (away at W field) beat Hull at Hull.
  5. Rochdale Looking For Payment Reductions

    Its fair to say that if the Hornets cannot manage financially with their setup (which I once considered a model for ORLFC) then as roughyed34 says...there will inevitably be trouble ahead...we are going to be cast adrift by superleague self interest...The referring to the RU model says it all....An elite on inflated wages...with growing mediocrity player wise... will it be entertaining? Its a question worth asking!
  6. Jack Littlejohn joins the Red Devils

    he will be maid to tuck it in....
  7. Geoff Fletcher RIP

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXFoxGA0Ybk&t=79s The Wonderful Geoff "Piggy" Fletcher...RL Legend! 6.02 in and on....
  8. 2018 Fixtures

    need a cup run...first out of hat!
  9. Geoff Fletcher RIP

    And what a player Mr Drummond turned out to be... a joy to have watched him.
  10. Australia will not make the final

    Australia are by far the best team this year...going forward...can any side have the muscle and intense concentration for the full 80 to "get in their faces" and really play on the limit of the rules to really rattle their cages...There are prima donnas in there one at fullback to start with...but hes good!
  11. Geoff Fletcher RIP

    I saw him play late in the day, knock kneed, hammered often in contact, but what a bloke...what a CHARACTER!
  12. Malcolm Alker on trial for KFC robbery

    No "Hot Wings" in Strangeways....Ta! Da!
  13. Whitebank/vestcare stadium.

    No...waterproofs not brollys as on whitebank road side up go the brollys gone goes the view.
  14. The Future of ORLFC

    I have come round to thinking that without knowing it he`s done us a favour...do any one of you want all the sheer stress of a role at ORLFC at a time when RL as a whole is metamorphosising into elite/others (rather like football). with so many clubs on the edge of the abyss, and less and less participation in the nation, and the RFL`s make it up as we go along for the lower leagues, (oxford etc...) Chris would still be a part of it ...out of necessity as I don`t think any of us have the werewithal (initially) on any framework of shared ownership/buyout/takeover. As has been said on here before...Use it before you lose it...Im hauling down my protest flag...Two years now, After all R***dale M*****ld and S********th Ran***s just aint the same...I will go to Whitebank, its handy and I like the proximity. hopefully he will use my gate money to pay off a little of any liabilities. I laughed aloud when one witty wag on here suggested that CH was , and I quote" back in his comfort zone" I knew what was meant...back to winning at Whitebank...all he has to sort really! One day someone may have to "pick up the pieces" cos when this toy gets thrown it will be broken...
  15. its the third sport in the UK...football top then RU...there are not that many full time teams if you think about it
