Oldham RL still second after 50-6 win against Coventry

A much-changed Oldham team raced to their eighth win in nine outings when winning 50-6 against Coventry Bears in Rugby on Sunday (September 1).

Leaders Whitehaven and third-placed Newcastle also won, so with one game left in the regular Betfred League 1 season it’s no-change at the top.

Fourth-placed Hunslet lost at home to Workington Town but the clash of the Yorkshiremen and Oldham at the South Leeds Stadium next Sunday will still be “massive” according to Roughyeds skipper Gareth Owen.

Oldham need to win to guarantee at least a second-place finish while Hunslet must win to ensure a fourth-place finish with Doncaster breathing down their necks.

Scott Naylor’s men led 24-0 at half-time against Coventry and finished with nine tries by Liam Bent, Danny Langtree (2), Adam Brook, Jack Holmes, Kyran Johnson, Declan Kay, Phil Joy and Ben Davies plus seven goals by Paul Crook.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
