The Roughyeds


Roughyeds expect to be at full strength

CENTRE Cameron Leeming is having treatment for a tight hamstring and some of his Oldham RL team mates are carrying niggles, but coach Scott Naylor expects everyone to be fully fit for Sunday’s crunch clash with Hunslet at the South Leeds Stadium (3pm kick-off).

Ritchie Hawkyard, Zack McComb, Dave Hewitt, Matty Wikinson, Danny Bridge and Ed Smith were all given Sunday off when Oldham won 50-6 at Coventry last week.

They will all be in the selection mix, however, for the Hunslet game, together with the players who stepped up to the side against Coventry and did a good job.

Said Naylor:

“We’ve got a few niggles, including some of the lads who played against Coventry and some who didn’t. By weekend, though, we expect to have everyone available who has put in an appearance in the last three games.”

Neither Naylor nor his players have forgotten what happened when Hunslet won 36-28 at the Vestacare in April.

Until a few minutes from the end Oldham were comfortably in the lead before Hunslet scored three converted tries in the last eight minutes to snatch the vital two points on offer.

In his first game back after a spell with Hull, Danny Langtree was “spotted” out of the game.

Zack McComb was man of the match with tries in the 44th and 64th minutes which put Roughyeds 26-18 in front.

Thirteen minutes from the end there was an incident which led to the sin-binning of Gareth Owen and Hunslet’s Mike Emmett and a penalty to Oldham which Dave Hewitt converted into a 28-18 lead.

A few minutes later, after another clash, Langtree was sin-binned and Dan Hawksworth was sent off, the restart penalty again going Oldham’s way.

In the few minutes left after that, Hunslet totally dominated the 11 v 11 contest to score three last-gasp tries by Adam Robinson and two by Ben Heaton, both former Oldham players.

Looking back to that Good Friday defeat, Naylor said:

“The sin-binnings seemed to change the game in their favour, so we feel we owe them one,

“They’re big, strong and physical with good size on the fringes.

“We are on a winning run and that should help. It’s going to be tough, but if you want to win promotions you’ve got to play in these big games and you’ve got to win them.”

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!
