  1. Glad Hutchings has signed. He was a very promising young winger from Saints. I think over the off season he might have bulked up a bit too much as Diskin might have seen him more as a utility. Will be very good back on the wing as he is very strong and has a huge workrate carrying the ball.
  2. Obviously in recent years the two promotion finals in 2015 and 2019 would be up there along with the cup shock win against Hull KR in 2016. I think a couple more that really stand out for me is playing Blackpool away in 2010? and McNally I think scoring in the last minute to win a huge game. Another was Barrow away in 2007 to go through to the Grand Final and Adam Hughes scoring an intercept to guarantee the win. Was a huge Oldham following in both games with superb atmosphere's. Gill's winning try against Bradford in 2017 at the fold was also super as a one off moment.
  3. Think they're announcing 2 a week on a Tuesday and Thursday night to parcel out the news. We've got at least another 3 new signings already in the bag just waiting to be announced. Of the players left from this year who haven't yet resigned i'd like to see Hutchings signed as we barely saw him this season because of injury but he looked very promising in pre season. Glad Smith has signed as he is potentially is an excellent player at Championship standard we just need to get him on the pitch as often as we can. Looks like Diskin has really focused on the pack so far but we need to start looking at the outside backs especially wing.
  4. Nope. But he wont be with us next season.
  5. Only seen Reilly play this season but he looks very promising based on those games. Got a lovely little swerve/step to find space and then has great leg drive in the contact. Prop looked to be our weakest element this season and looks like Disco is really looking to rectify this and I believe we've still got a few more new forwards to come in as well as hopefully Joy and Spencer resigning.
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tztJnFs1-i4 Think this is our Brierley not the one above but i'll take him as well
  7. A new company has taken over the super league stats during lockdown making any comparisons pointless. They are very poor and have made a huge amount of mistakes but no one seems interested in taking them to task from the RFL.
  8. Love Nelmes and what we saw from him in 2018. Think he had some off field difficulties last year which is why he left but now thats all sorted cant wait to see him back in an oldham shirt.
  9. Yeah I agree its poor. Stats should be available as soon as possible. In terms of live stats the RFL has never wanted them done for some reason and has always just let SKY do their own which i've always thought has been to a poor standard.
  10. A new company has taken over doing super league stats in Sydney so I would take any of these comparisons with a grain of salt. They priortise NRL stats over super league so the stats wont be posted until Monday's I think from now on.
  11. Yep Nelmes was one as well. Was absolute quality for us in 2018.
  12. Yeah thats one of the 5 i was told. only really seen him once this year against us so dont know too much about him.
  13. Disco been out and about making plenty of inquiries. I know 5 new signings and all will improve us.
  14. Missed tackles are obviously not good but you are always going to miss a fair few especially as we are down the bottom. One of the big worries for me watching the game back was how little control we had at the PTB , an area where we have dominated League 1 since Naylor came aboard, both in attack and defence. Dewsbury constantly got three men in the tackle and manipulated us onto our backs or a poor position. Whereas when we were defending we would get numbers in the tackle but they finished on their elbows and knees getting a quick PTB and plenty of easy metres. Down the hill second half was so easy for them and was probably the easiest half they will have all season. In terms of changes we have to make a change in the halves. Charnock had a nightmare and whilst Hewitt wasn't great he was much better than Charnock. Abram has been good at times this year but teams have started to target him at full back because of his small stature. I'd move Abram to stand off and let him just run the ball as he is very evasive and let Hewitt control the team. Full back would either put Kay back in his best position or look to buy a new player. When Bent is back i'd move him to right side second row to help Abram in defence and move Langtree to Loose forward. Langers is one of the best and most destructive ball carriers in the Championship but is just getting zero ball out wide this season. At least at Loose he will be constantly in the game and it would simplify his defence where he would just have to tackle rather than worry about the Opposition half on his side which he has struggled a bit with this year as you can see with his missed tackle count.
