Dons sign young prop ahead of their big game at Oldham

IN readiness for their big game at Oldham on Sunday, Doncaster RL Club have signed a young prop described by Hull FC boss Lee Radford as “one of the best front-row prospects in the British game.”

Lewis Bienek (20), 6ft 3in and 19 stone, has joined The Dons, on a month’s loan from Hull, following their shock home defeat by Hunslet last time out.

A Londoner of Polish descent, Bienek is on a three and a half year contract at Hull, who signed him from London Broncos early this season despite hot competition from other Betfred Super League clubs.

He returned to Broncos on loan and played in six Championship games for them early this season, scoring a try in a 64-18 win against Swin ton Lions.

He was later recalled by Hull, who have high hopes of the young giant.

Roughyeds, meanwhile, expect to be at full strength, boosted by new loan deals for Luke Hooley and Lee Kershaw and a ruling from the RFL’s disciplinary people that Danny Bridge’s yellow card at West Wales Raiders was sufficient punishment.

The only doubt surrounds prop Adam Neal, who has to have another specialist’s check following the concussion he suffered against Keighley seven weeks ago.

The players were back in training last night after their week’s break.

Said coach Scott Naylor:

“We’re waiting for the latest verdict on Adam (Neal), but he is our only injury victim.

“The lads were back with a vengeance last night. Sometimes after a break they’re a little bit flat, but last night they were really up for it . . . it was a brilliant first night back.”

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
