  1. watched the highlights of whitehaven v featherstone and bradford. whitehaven faded badly in both second halves. according to the whitehaven newspaper they will have 4 of their main players out including greg mcnalley and they will be short on numbers.
  2. tandle

    champ. table

    i see that the bbc and sky sports have now put their champ tables correctly based on points. but when i came on here first they both had oldham 4th from the bottom, they must have got the original information from someware. trust the rugby league never, and i suggest after the dirty tricks they have done on oldham in the past that oldham watches their backs on this one.
  3. reading the champ reading the champ.table oldham are fourth from the bottom with 4 points, newcastle are 8th of the the bottom with 3 points. there are 4 teams above oldham all on less points,oldham are minus 40 points.against. so if you are forced to field a weak team through injuries lets say for 4 games and get thrashed, but you win all the other games you could still get relegated very odd typical rugby league
  4. first of all both sides out there to day were a credit to the game of rugby league. it was a fantastic win against a very good halifax side, just plain blood and guts mixed with some great rugby.get some more of the injured back and we could have a very good side oldham are back.
  5. i would certainly give langtree a go at centre, but not bridge.the other centre if fit would be heaton, if he isnt fit i would play dupree at centre he is big very fast with great ball handling skills a one man wrecking ball fancy him running wide at their backs. the wings would be ince and brierley,and another thing i would do start with charnock at loose forward and owen at stand off. no disrespect to bent put him down as a sub. if these changes dont work with the subs we have they could soon be changeg
  6. watching this game the thing that stands out to me is that we might have our biggest squad for years, but a lot of these players are not championship standard. the injury situation is now very bad and with these injuries it is possible with the team we have to put out could lose our next 4 matches.to many young players with not enough experience.but sad to say they are not big enough for this brutal league.
  7. dog there is our league. and our leagues. which is all sports mainly football make sure you use our league
  8. had the same trouble last night with the dew. v whit. game took me about 6 tries before they recognised my email address. this is not the first time this as happened something is wrong at their end needs sorting, i find the best browser to use is the firefox .
  9. the ref did not even things up in the second half he just played to the rules as he should.
  10. i am with a lot on here swinton were given 3 tries that were. one held up/ two a double movement/ and three the biggest joke in my 69 years of watching rugby league. and to 3 players i have called in the past, ABRAM/ OWEN/HEWITT/ they all had blinders. playing down the slope in the second half our forwords destroyed swinton just a great win i am now going to enjoy my bottle of whiskey.
  11. to many dropped balls to many stupid passes, how many times did we give swinton the ball back. abram is not a full back but he is very mobile i would try him at scrum half or hooker. i would play brierley at full back were he as played there before i thought he really carried the ball well. but we need a stand off who can lead because we do not have a leader.to give the backs good ball.
  12. for got to mention lepori got the man of the match he had a great game on attack and defence makes you wonder ?
  13. watched the swinton v newcastle game which swinton won. swinton do not look a big side but were very mobile and liked to get the ball out wide, how they will go on against oldham with a big pack will be interesting. but one thing oldham will have to watch the pitch at sale is very wide and long. when newcastle played down the middle they made very good yards
  14. a lot better by miles but whats made my day is for the first time in 5 years we have a attacking scrum half in barran. cant see hewitt being the first choice scrum half now. one thing i feel needs sorting out was that the oldham wingers and centres where dragged in the middle to often leaving big gaps on the outside which halifax took full advantage of. but it is a lot more promising.
