Oldham outgunned in Toulouse

A scintillating display of attacking play proved too good for Oldham on Saturday evening as Matt Diskin’s side were soundly beaten 58-6 by in-form Toulouse Olympique.

Despite the best efforts of the men in red and white hoops, backed-up by a band of hardy Roughyed supporters who didn’t stop singing all night, eleven French tries against a solitary effort from Oldham’s Matty Fletcher tells its own story.

The Stade Ernest-Wallon, home of successful Rugby Union club Stade Toulousain, is the new home for Sylvain Houles promotion chasing side and they took full advantage of the stadium’s new hybrid surface.

Bastien Ader opened the scoring in the 11th minute following the first penalty in the match and from that point the home side were always in control. Further ties from James Bell and Paul Macron gave Olympique an 18-0 half-time lead.

The second-half resumed in much the same vein as the first with Toulouse doubling their score to 36 before Fletcher crashed over in the 65th minute to put points on the board for the visitors.

Any Oldham thoughts of a come-back were quashed in the final quarter as Toulouse ran-in four further tries to complete the scoring and leave Roughyed fans and players reflecting on a heavy defeat.

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.
