I was a bit sceptical when we signed both Reilly and Nelmes but they both proved to be more than capable championship forwards..
Having watched the highlights of the game against Widnes, Nelmes in particular was superb against the more illustrious and Championship hardened Widnes forwards. Watching the video he made the big yards down the middle which lead to our points.
Reilly was just coming into his own when the Covid took hold. His hardwork doing the Rampage club whilst coming back from a long injury was excellent. I hope this continues when the Covid thing get’s wrapped up.
I’m disappointed both players are leaving but hope they both go on to have successful careers once the game starts again. I’m sure they will really toughen up the Oldham pack and make them a more difficult opponent In the division once it resumes.
