Sky Sports to show World Club Challenge

The World Club Challenge between Leeds Rhinos and Melbourne Storm on Friday February 16 at the AAMI Park, Melbourne is to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The 2017 Betfred Super League champions travel to Australia to face the 2017 NRL Premiers Melbourne Storm to be crowned the world’s best Rugby League team. It is only the third time the World Club Challenge has been played in Australia and Rugby League fans will be able to watch live on Sky Sports Main Event (Kick-Off: 9am UK time).

Sky Sports have also confirmed that they will broadcast the Betfred Super League game between Wigan Warriors and Hull FC on Saturday February 10 which will be played at the WIN Stadium, Wollongong. It is the first time ever a Super League fixture will be played outside Europe. Sky Sports will showcase the history making game on Main Event (Kick-Off: 8.45am UK time).

The following week, the two English clubs will take part in the first ever double-header games between Super League and the NRL teams at a single venue when Hull FC play St George Illawarra Dragons and Wigan Warriors face South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, Sydney on Saturday February 17. Sky Sports will once again show both fixtures live on Main Event (Hull FC v St George Illawarra, Kick-Off: 6.45am UK time. Wigan Warriors v South Sydney Rabbitohs, Kick-Off: 8.45am).

Sky Sports Head of Rugby League, Neville Smith, said: “We are delighted to be showing the World Club Challenge once again, as well as the first-ever Super League match to be played outside of Europe and an outstanding double-header in Sydney. These matches are going to be a tremendous part of another massive season of rugby league on Sky Sports, and we can’t wait to take you there.”

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
