Gill out of Hull KR tie

NEW loan signing Kieran Gill is out of Oldham’s fifth-round Challenge Cup clash with Super League’s Hull KR.

Parent club Castleford Tigers have pulled him because the 22-year-old centre has a problem with a knee cap.

His try-scoring Oldham debut in last Sunday’s 32-18 win over Keighley Cougars was his first game back after major surgery to reconstruct his left knee.

Said Roughyeds boss Scott Naylor:

“Cas pulled him out but I think it’s precautionary.

“I don’t know whether he got a knock against Keighley or it’s something he’s done in training, but ten months is a long time out and I suppose you’re very lucky if you don’t feel anything first game back.”

Prop Adam Neal is also unlikely to play. After leaving the field with concussion midway through the second half of the Keighley game, he was due to have a head test on Saturday morning.

He didn’t train last night, however, and Naylor is more or less resigned to the fact that he won’t be ready for Sunday.

Keighley’s Josh Tonks, who was involved in the tackle on Neal, has been cleared of any wrong-doing by the Match Review Panel.

They concluded that Neal was taken to the ground legally, but there could have been a clash of heads.

Even though Gill and Neal were not involved last night — and there will be no dual-reg personnel this week — Naylor said he still had 23 players training.

He added:

“I’ve still got a good bunch of lads to choose from.”

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
