  1. Always a cracking day out with the Hairnets - and this is a game not to be missed. Sadly, not this time. It's probably the first I will miss in over 60 years.

    I just hope and pray the Hornets don't end up with the Quinn/Batty mess we had so losing Sheddings.

  2. Just interested to find out why Danny Langtree doesn't appear to have played for several weeks. Is he injured or just not catching a very good side?

    All the best for the rest of the season - an Oldham Fan.

  3. To realise its potential, I feel it depends upon how much of the golf club we could use. Parking is a major problem if there are over 1000 there.

    But I agree we have nothing and beggars can't be choosers.

  4. Back to the lock lane fiasco - none has mentioned the tannoy system. No lights, no information what would have happened if the game was abandoned ie. replay arrangements and money back and a very poor performance.

    Let's hope things are sorted by the 27th March.

    On a massive plus side, Avro have done a great job with the ground, except for the dual lining.

  5. Brooksy does a fantastic job doing his analysis of the match and it can't be easy. However, I was one of the drenched right up to the bitter end and I only saw TWO breaks of their line resulting in tries. In your analysis you said Oldham made 42 tackle busts! Am I reading busts the wrong way?

    No criticism meant just clarification.

    Thanks for all you do.

  6. I've warmed up now and all I can say is well done Lock Lane you were by far the better side and let's hope you  get a decent draw in the next round.

    Ridyard is a quality playe,r and it showed in glimpses, but he needs a decent pack in front of him - sadly on this performance he hasn't got one.

    The disallowed Brierley try was right in front of us, I don't think he dropped it it looked more like he grounded it in the football area and not in the rugby in goal area.

  7. Having watched the Yeds for over 60 years I look back at all the great grounds that have gone. Obviously Watersheddings has to be my favourite but Station Road, Thrum Hall, Maclaren Field, Central Park, Wilderspool, Knowlsey Road, Fartown, Athletic Grounds, Crown Flats, Parkside, Tatters Field to name a few. Great memories from all of them.

  8. There seems to be very little evidence reading the national papers or on the television that the RL world cup is taking place this year.

    All we hear is constant references to the RU world cup in 2023!

    Surely. there must be someone at RL headquarters responsible for promoting our RL world cup.

  9. You've got to remember sooperdooperleeg runs all things Rugby League.

    The thought of one of them being knocked out in an early round would end their season. It's a closed shop and that is why our great game in is such mess.

    Looking on the bright side, we have two local derbies to look forward to - our own mini trophy with bragging rights to who ever comes top.

    Stuff sooperdooperleeg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Since nothing is being posted, I was just wondering if the law Cup game is on. If so, when?

    I know we have one friendly against Wakefield followed by the challenge cup game.

    Just watched the try compilation from the 88 - 89 season, on Youtube, what a great side we had. I'm sure it said there were 4,600 watching the Yeds playing Keighley.
