    Must've been a bit soul destroying. 

    Not really, the lads never let their heads drop & ended the game well.

    That’s a really good win. Especially keeping Cornwall scoreless. We’re seeing the benefit of being able to play the same team every week now.

    Can't play Cornwall every week mate !!   🙂   🙂   🙂   

    I'm sure there's a song in there somewhere ?  🙂

    I went. Was I disappointed slightly. Especially when a couple of waterhead dads said their first team would beat both teams. 

    I think that sums where we are in the rugby landscape of oldham.

    Good to see Martin Murphy yesterday so that's a plus.

    I look at where we are and where I think we should be and that's depressing 

    Well if the Waterhead dads said it, who are we to argue ?????????????????

    Pleased to hear you were there Cliff, last week you had fallen out of love with the game, that's good to see.

    I am definitely that nice lady from over the hill and have enjoyed entertains many Oldham fans over the years! Which is why A…nite …a bath.

     

    Go for it you yeds….soften up those pasties for us next week.  I agree…they are no WWRs and not to be taken lightly.

     

    We might e top of league for a few hours but we all know we have had a soft schedule to date. The real test is yet to come.

     

     

     

    Thank you, I feel better for knowing that 🙂

    call that living……took my life in my own hands walking through to get to the turnstile.

     

    If you had two ears on tintown you were a cissy.

     

    Mate who lived round there had the police round, they said he had been reported as paying his rent…the police wanted to know where he had got the money from.

     

    Another bloke qualified for the mexico olympics in the sprints….nobody in Britain  could do 100 meters faster than him…the Gas Board said.

    Anita, I'm somewhat intrigued. Someone on the Hornets forum has suggested your name 'Anita Bath' is a non-de-plume! Well this suspicious and over-active mind of mine is wondering if that is true , particularly when you relate 'blokey' stories like climbing over walls & mates with rent arrears dealing with the police . 

    Could it be you are really a bloke in disguise? Is Anita Bath very nearly an anagram of A Tin Bath? Are you an ex-Hornets second-row forward from days gone-by in disguise?

    I get the impression most of my fellow Roughyeds on here see you as that nice lady from over the hill, hence the complimentary comments recently. Just my enquiring mind doing somersaults, please do confirm either way when you get a second, I would love to be proved wrong!!  🙂

    Re J Royales query about record winning margin - Sunday's 96 point difference equalled a 102-6 victory over WWR in July 2018 at the Vestacare. Incidently Martyn Ridyard's 14 goal haul equalled that of Bernard Ganley against Liverpool City in 1959 and was 1 more than Andy Ballard's 13 goal record for the "new club". Martyn's 32 points was however 2 behind the 34 points in a match record shared by Andy Ballard and Chris Baines.

    And Lewis Palfrey!

    Yes, AB of course the start is 27/3…it must be my age and the prolonged league starting date. Any reason why there is no Law Cup “friendly” with the Oldham tribe?

    Apparently, there is another restructure on the cards at the end of 2023.  Main forum - “Ralph Rimmer says” (no detail !) - wherein discussion, so far, is focused on Super League 1 & 2 (2x10).

    No Law Cup? Very good question!!

    Joe is no assassin, he plays the game hard which is how I like it and would imagine many my age would. They are slowly killing the game. Last weeks Ref has only been doing the job twelve months and typified the way the Refs are going. A good Ref  would clamp down on all the whinging and appealing  but that’s too much to hope for. 

    Very easy to criticise referees. It's a poisoned chalice. Without a ref there's no game remember. Plus they have so many guidelines to follow these days unlike in the past when a ref could literally ref it as he saw it!

    I am not a rugby fan...sorry.

    However I am very interested in the pieces about Fred Hall. Did the father of the Fred Hall mentioned also play for Oldham and have some connection to Moston?

    I ask because I have 2 old letters from a Fred Hall, rugby player, to my mother written at the beginning of the war and I wondered if he would like them if he is related. I have no family and as I am in my 70s they may end up in the bin, which would be a shame if he would like them.

    Can anyone offer LadyM any assistance?

  11. Watching Man United crash out of the FA Cup to lowly Middlesbrough tonight made me smile. Not because I have anything against them, but just goes to show in cup ties, in football or in Rugby League, upsets do happen (as us Roughyeds know only too well). And to the biggest and best clubs too!

    Not only that, but they had an electrical breakdown as well 🙂   In their case, there were no pies at half-time for the 70,000 crowd (or any food for that matter). 

    Now that really made me smile 🙂 🙂 🙂

    To be honest. With reference to the old boys, apart from the langtree, the lads who went to Widnes and waterhead, I wasn't overly impressed by. Abram was below average for me. If he starts playing better this season, my question to him would be, why didn't you play like that last season? 

    Abram will look the part in a winning team in League One because with ball in hand he's a good player. The reason he'll never be good enough for the Championship, in my opinion, is his lack of size and physical presence, especially when defending or under the high ball when playing full-back.

    Just to rub salt in the wound Oldham cast off Dam Abram kicked a joint club record 14 goals for Swinton in their narrow win at West Wales. 

    Was he a cast-off or was he offered a new deal but chose to leave?

    Cracking performance against the young, speedy, well-drilled Trinity side. 12-0 lead to Oldham before they sneaked a try just before half time. Generally good defence. Some good yardage from full back Restall who was impressive. Trinity had us on the rack for a while in the second half - some dodgy defence on our tight and a couple of high shots, knock ins helped them to score a few. Our commitment throughout was great though. Good to hear Martin Ridyard and Luke Nelmes talking a lot- good leaders. For a team that barely knew each other a few weeks ago it was a really promising performance in my opinion. Bring on Keighley.

    Bring on Lock Lane you mean? Let's not under-estimate this mob, it will be a very different game next week & will not be easy.

    Saturday evening was like a breath of fresh air after the disappointments of last season, but we don't want to be losing to Lock Lane. Up the mighty Yeds!!

    You may have to sign in to watch.... 

    Excellent coverage, very impressed with The Sportsman, cracking camera angles, replays, interviews. Very good.

    Seeding, in my opinion, has destroyed the challenge cup. So what if Leeds are drawn against Wigan in the early rounds!!!! That the luck of the draw. Having lower clubs getting through, because of the luck of the draw is what made it magic. Having the same 4 or 5 clubs getting through is boring. The challenge cup is not there to find the best club overall. That's what the league system is for. The challenge cup is about dreams. In 1989-90, lowly 2nd div Oldham beat Huddersfield, Workington, Salford and Widnes, only to lose in the semi final to John Holdsworth and Warrington. The town was buzzing. That's the real magic of the cup. Unfortunately it's now dead. 

    Less of the lowly!    🙂   🙂  🙂

    Nope not the best 

    Personally, I think in this age of Covid restrictions, the digital programme is the way forward albeit not most peoples preferred option. In the circumstances the club make a very good job of it.
