  1. We brought in experienced players to try to see out games and that failed today. Saw nothing wrong in the Bowman try at the end - thought we had scored an awesome try to win after the hooter. Clear mistake by Touch Judge for Workys opening try. Two sets of lines clearly fooled TJ as try scorers feet were at least a foot over the rugby dead ball line. Think the lines need to be better colour difference. Decent performance though, just can't give good teams 12 points start primarily due to giving away field position due to poor discipline. Only first game onwards and upwards.
  2. Great win for the Yeds over the Hairnets. Forwards bossed the opposition to win 24-8. Hawkyard is quality always thought he was good when played against us and great to have him on board. Bowman looks like he can bring a different dimension with some good ball play and also powered through a one on one to score. Singling out a couple of the new boys but solid performance from all of the squad. Their 2 tries came from kicks to the corner where their guy got a run on ours and got above. Great start for us, but think the hairnets are in for a very tough season as don't look like a team from a division above. Come on Oldham!
  3. Neal and Briscoe retiring are a significant loss to the group and need.some further quality signings to replace.
  4. Have to agree with Roughyed34 we don't need another backrower as think we are strong in that area. Olpherts can also play centre but was playing for Newcastle until this season so hardly SL pedigree and sounds like they are looking to get players match fit. Salford coach Watson was complaining a few weeks ago about quality of their squad and can't spend now like others, presumably now that Koukash has gone - was it really for our benefit or theirs this DR?
  5. Brilliant player who gave everything. Remember going to Runcorn to watch Oldham play them (think Charlie McAlister may have been on trial??) and thought Cogger was the dirtiest player I had ever seen, as had a go at everyone. How things changed when he joined us, gave everything and put us on the front foot with every one of his many carries in a game. Remember him picking up from base of scrum and scooting away for a try down the blind side a few times - don't see that in the modern game!
  6. Decent? Which game was he decent must have missed that one!
  7. New chant needs to be There's only 2 George Tyson's! or Will the real George Tyson please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.
  8. Without DR squad is paper thin as demonstrated tonight. Further injuries in game to Grimmer, Turner and Owen probably cost us the game in the end as just not enough troops and people playing injured from weekend. By comparison Dewsbury rested players at weekend with tonight in mind and it worked for them. Desperately need reinforcements. Really don't understand why they sent Egodo back to Cas before new loan for a more experienced back was done. If we can't beat these and then lose to Bradford as players busted again I fear we are staring at relegation.
  9. Sounds from comment on Twitter that the lad is looking for a game. Come on Roughyeds sort it out and bring him into squad.
  10. Someone has already mentioned the game against Australia in 86 at Sheddings. That was a special night in my memories of our old home. The teams came out and lined up for the national anthems and the guys looked seriously hyped up, non more so than the infamous Bruce "Bruiser" Clark an Aussie who went home with a t-shirt saying "I drank Oldham dry" who decided on this night he really wanted to play. During the anthems Bruiser launched a ball at the face of Aussie star Paul Langmack. This was the signal for game on let's give it the Aussies. The Roughyeds team gave them a serious physical battle, before going down heroically to a late Aussie come back. One of the absolute best nights of rugby I have ever witnessed. The score and teams that night below, just look at the legends in these lineups - more so on the Aussie side but all our boys are heroes to the faithful. Oldham 16 (Tries: Hawkyard, Foy. Goals: Worrall 3, Hobbs) Australia 22 (Tries: Lamb 2, Elias, Alexander. Goals: O’Connor 3)   Oldham: Jeff Edwards; Paul Sherman, Des Foy, Gary Warnecke, Hussein M’Barki; David Topliss, Ray Ashton; Bruce Clark, Terry Flanagan, Neil Clawson, David Hobbs, Mike Worrall, Stuart Raper. Subs Colin Hawkyard &Tom Nadiole. Australia: Gary Belcher; Dale Shearer, Chris Mortimer, Mal Meninga, Michael O’Connor; Terry Lamb, Greg Alexander; Phil Daley, Ben Elias, Martin Bella, Steve Folkes, Les Davidson, Paul Langmack. Sub: Paul Sironen.
  11. That was quality. Supporter tackled Buster first and was taking his applause from the crowd when Braddy tackled him from behind going right through him - the lad must have gone home with whiplash. He got up and chased Buster all over the field. Still makes me laugh now!
  12. Oldham v Featherstone 88 playoff final at Oldham Trafford. We started well built a decent lead and then Feth came back second half to lead. Kevin Meadows dives over in the last few minutes to level the scores. Charlie McAlister knocks the conversion over to win the game. Remember some great homecoming scenes outside the Queen Elizabeth Hall with the Yeds parading the trophy and singing myself hoarse with a great bunch of supporters. Just wish a few that were present that day would come and look at what is going on at Bower Fold now as we have a really committed team and coaching staff working wonders on our budget.
  13. Have we got some new training equipment?
  14. Assume he must have been injured or ill rather than dropped
