I'm new to this forum, but had to join when I watched Oldham's stirring win on Saturday. It was fantastic! I have a rugby union background but boy this match went a long way to converting me. I only w

Great to have you with us, mate. Enjoy the Greatest Game in general and the rollercoaster ride that is the Roughyeds in particular.

Well done Oldham from a Batley supporter.

I was at the game taking photos.  It's funny how you can hear everything that the players are shouting to each other.

Anyway, when Oldham were pressing continually in the second half, a Fax player shouted to the ref "Sir, sir, Kirky's nose is offside".

Lol.

What a day for the club to be part of a social media boycott. I bet they're itching to post reaction to an absolute cracker of a game. The difference between this week and last week is we didn't gift them soft stupid tries. Like last week opened them up on attack. I couldn't believe what I was watching today. "NRL, it's just like watching NRL" . 😄

I'm sure it'll be on the website the minute this boycott is over.

Get in. Been at work all day and just watched the game back now. What a team performance. Screamed our heads off when Crofty went over. Will post a longer comment but need to calm down first.

came from behind at home again, this is where our fate will be decided our home games, if we can pick up some points away from home thats bonus for us, going to be honest i did not expect us to beat halifax so hats off to the lads.

Absolutely fantastic performance across the entire 80 mins and we fully deserved the victory. In the first half our defence was superb aside from one bad phase of play when Fax scored their second try. Second half we were in complete control and whilst we looked a bit stodgy with the ball at times we didn't lose our composure and kept them under constant pressure until they finally cracked.

I thought there was 3 amazing stand outs yesterday. Croft was sensational yesterday setting up the first try and then scoring the match winner. He looked a massive threat every time he got the ball and will be a great signing. Callum Green has shown promise at times so far this season but he was outstanding yesterday. He glides across the pitch and looks like the dynamite full back we desperately needed.  Reilly continued his fantastic form with a monstrous try and his performance in the second half was unreal.

There were plenty of other players who had excellent games with Langtree being his usual excellent self, Kirk having his best game in an Oldham shirt, Gregory being super off the bench and scooting through their tired defence. Spencer is in a wonderful spell of form and played great again.

The most impressive thing to me though was the team performance in defence. We held our line constantly in the first half and actually looked very comfortable across the game.  If we play like that across the season I'll be happy win,lose or draw.

COME ON OLDHAM.

It'll be on the website as soon as I can get it there 🙂

Just wanted to say well done with the website. It’s impressive, clear, informative, up to date. Much appreciated. I also like The Oldham Times Roughyeds coverage; much better than The Chron.

I'd like to echo Shrewsburys sentiments. The website has been and still is infinitely better than it was before you took over Dave. Many thanks.

Bent is worth his weight in gold. How he put so much into every game is beyond me. Again 49 tackles. In yunion they go mad when somebody does 15 tackles in a game.

My only worry is the amount of tackling Charnock does, again 30 tackles. Gregory must be the find of the season he turns every game when he comes on and besides that he made 35 tackles!

There's no doubt that the website is spot on, as is the other work that Dave Naylor does with the excellent match day photography etc. As for the coverage in the Oldham Times, Roger Halstead provides his usual excellent reports. However, if you saw the daily print version of the paper, you may be as disappointed as me, to see that, the 'Yeds' don't get the profile they deserve. It must be on 5 days out of 6, that we get a large picture of the Latics Manager, glaring at us off the back page, rather than any positive rugby news. Very sad, I'm afraid.
