Oldham waiting for Adam Neal’s head test

PROP Adam Neal’s chances of playing in Sunday’s Challenge Cup clash with Hull KR at Bower Fold (3pm) will remain in the balance for the next few days.

Having been the victim of a tackle that was placed on report in Oldham’s 32-18 win against Keighley Cougars, the front-row man is currently going through the RFL’s back-to-play protocol for players who have suffered concussion or head injuries.

“He won ‘t have his head test until Saturday so we won’t know anything until then,” said coach Scott Naylor.

“A couple of the other lads have niggles, but nothing that will keep them out on Sunday.

“Luke Hooley, Lee Kershaw and Keiran Gill, our three loan lads, are all available — thanks to their parent clubs for that — so if they came through the Keighley game okay I should have a big squad to pick from.”

The next training session is tomorrow (Thursday) night when supporters are invited to attend between 6pm and 7.30pm at the Vestacare Stadium to see the players preparing for the big match and to have pictures taken with the Challenge Cup.

All those in attendance will have the opportunity to be entered into a draw for a star prize —- a ticket for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final at Wembley on August 25 plus FREE executive travel to Wembley and back.

Boys and girls under the age of 16 can also enter a competition to become the team’s mascot on Sunday, leading the team out on to the pitch alongside the captain.

For full details go to the Roughyeds website.

Looking ahead to the tie, Scott Naylor said:

“Rovers won’t take us lightly. They won’t want THAT to happen again (a reference to Oldham’s 36-22 win at Craven Park in 2016) so it’s going to be extremely tough.

“All the pressure is on them, though. There’s none on us, other than what we put on ourselves.

“They’re a Super League club and rightly so. It’s good to have two Super League teams in Hull.

“They’re a different team to the one we played two years ago so we know it will be very tough, but what’s the point of playing rugby if you don’t want to challenge yourself ?”

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!
