29 February... What's so special ?

Recommended Posts

It happens once every four years ... so what's so special for you about this date ?

Well can anyone equal this RL record held by Oldham (certainly nobody can beat it !) .....

Since the formation of the Rugby League (Northern Union) in 1895 Oldham have played 6 matches on 29 February (1908, 1936, 1964, 1968, 1976, 2008) ... and won all of them !

Furthermore the points conceded in each match were as follows ... 2, 5, 7, 2, 5, 8 ... a total of - yes you guessed it - 29 !!!!

Has any other team got a 100% record for matches played on any particular date ?

Nice bit of trivia, I like that.

Saw on BBC Breakfast someone celebrating their 13th Birthday, on the same day as her daughter was celebrating her 6th birthday, Yes, you guessed it, they were both born on February 29th.

I once had a patient on my theatre list aged 8, so I got all the equipment ready for an 8 year old, when this 30 something came in I thought we had the wrong patient, then she told me to check her date of birth, it was a leap day.

This is the link to the details shown on the "Oldham RL Heritage Trust" website ... https://orl-heritagetrust.org.uk/today-in-history/

EDIT It's now 1 March and the above link has changed to matches on that date ... you'll have to check it all again in 2024 !!!
