Hughes back in Oldham’s 19

KENNY Hughes is back in Oldham’s 19 for the tough game against Doncaster at the Keepmoat Stadium tomorrow (Sun).

The hooker has been out for several weeks with an ankle injury.

Ben Davies and Danny Rasool also return to the provisional squad to the exclusion of the suspended Danny Bridge and two dual-reg players from Leigh Centurions, Jonah Cunningham and Nick Gregson.

Squad: Bent, Briscoe, Crook, Davies, Eccleston, Hewitt, Holmes, Hooley, Hughes, Joy, Kershaw, Langtree, McComb, Nelmes, Owen, Rasool, Reid, Spencer, Wilkinson.

Said coach Scott Naylor:

“They’re in a similar position to us — they’ve probably lost games they expected to win. Like us, they’re not in the position they expected to be.

“But they’re a very good team coached by a smart young English coach (Richard Horne) and they’ve got a fantastic dual-reg link with Hull FC which regularly provides them with very good players.

“It will be a big test for us, but it is down to us. When we perform we win; that’s the long and short of what we are as a team.

“We have to continue to defend strongly, like we have all season, and we’ve also got to play with freedom on good ball and score some points.

“When we do the right things at the right times we win games, but we’re expecting a really tough game and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.”

The Dons made a beat-the-deadline signing when they captured outside back Jack Logan on loan from Hull FC.

He goes straight into Horne’s 19-man squad, which includes four dual-reg men, Logan on loan and a trialist in Karim Madani.

Squad: Beharrell, Boyle, Doherty, Downs (DR), England, Hedges, Howden, Kesik, Litten (DR), Logan, Madani, Mariano, Martin, Miloudi (DR), Muranika, Osborne (DR), Owen, Scott, Tali.

Coach Horne said:

“They did a really good job on us at Oldham and dominated our middles. They created opportunities on the back of that.

“We have to match them physically. They’re big and powerful so its a big challenge for our boys to react to that.

“They’ve also got smart halves who kick well. They dominate games and have high completion rates.

“It’s always a bit of a grudge match when a team beats you earlier in the season so we want to get one over on them.”

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.
