  1. Sorry MR - I've tried " Googling" but I can't find any site with a replay. From reading previous posts, Spud seems to be techy so he may be able to help.
  2. If you want to see some of the best rugby league you are ever likely to see, do yourself a favour and watch the first half of last Wednesday's opening State of Origin match in Brisbane.
  3. Excellent stuff - thanks Dave.
  4. Any vision anywhere Dave ?
  5. Good tip mate - just watched it. Excellent performance from Oldham, especially after going behind so early on a pudding of a pitch.
  6. Just following on from OLI's post, and I realise it's off topic, but your nickname "Gerrumonside ref" made me smile too - routinely shouted at Watersheddings and no doubt at all other grounds after every tackle by supporters of both teams playing. I do however recall a variation whenever Oldham played Salford and Trevor Rabbit was playing scrum half for Salford. There was a bloke who used to stand near me and my mates - we always used to stand in the same spot opposite the main stand - who after every scrum would exhort the referee to "Make that Rabbit retire". Cracks me up thinking of it now but I guess you had to be there !!!
  7. With no disrespect whatsoever to Haydock, you would have to say that if you had been allowed to pick your opponent, a home tie against Haydock would have been your choice.
  8. I've subscribed........I think !
  9. Epic encounter in prospect - and Johnathon Thurston and Shaun Johnson worth the admission price alone - sit back and enjoy RL at its best
  10. As far as I can recall, when I started watching ORLFC around 1955, the two clubs in the town were referred to as Oldham Rugby and Latics. I can't remember anyone saying "are you going to the Roughyeds on Saturday".
  11. Well they won't ever be able to deny you're their granddad - inter generational triplets ! Great picture Tony - two more Roughyeds fans for life
  12. Thanks Bryan.
  13. I know it's not strictly an RL / ORLFC matter but what was the issue between Paul Phillips and the Celtic fans ?
  14. Congratulations Dave - couldn't be a more deserving winner of the award.
  15. Haha - can't have that ! In Australian Rules Football the amount of statistics would make your eyes water. If you Google " How are statistics in AFL compiled " you should find " AFL Statistics / Passy's World of Mathematics " - fascinating little video on how a company called Champion Data do their job. Let's hope for the next three games the stats that keep you really busy are the number of tries ORLFC score.
