Winning run halted by Hunslet

Oldham’s eight-game winning streak came to an abrupt end at the South Leeds Stadium as Hunslet claimed a 16-12 victory.

The Roughyeds battled until the final hooter in an effort to snatch a win of their own but poor finishing near the line thwarted their efforts.

Luke Hooley opened the scoring for Oldham in the 13th minute, going over on the right after a quick-fire pass from Zack McComb. Crook failed to convert from near the touchline.

Hunslet hit back through Zac Braham on the 21st minute and led 6-4 after a successful conversion from Joe Sanderson. A Crook penalty restored parity before Matty Wilkinson crashed over from dummy-half to give Oldham a 12-6 interval lead.

The second half belonged to the hosts who prevented Oldham from adding to their score.

Opportunities went begging as Lee Kershaw knocked on over the line and Matt Reid was unable to reach a Dave Hewitt kick.

Hunslet levelelled the scores through a converted Mvududu try before a 60 metre break by Zack Braham allowed Cain Southernwood to go over from close range with 7 minutes remaining.

Oldham threw everything they had at Hunslet but the final pass went astray on a number of occasions and the hosts were able to hang on for the win.

Club Cash Lottery

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: or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to:

he 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.
