The Roughyeds


New World Cup brand launched

It’s exactly 500 days to go to the start of next year’s Rugby League World Cup which begins at St James Park, Newcastle on October 23, 2021.


The spectacular World Cup kick-off will see England take on Samoa at an iconic stadium that has become synonymous with Rugby League thanks to the North-East popularity of Magic Weekend and its ideal situation in the heart of the Geordie city.

To mark the 500-day milestone, World Cup organisers have today (Wed) unveiled a new branding for the tournament, aptly called “The Power of Togetherness” and including three stars to represent the three tournaments that will run side by side, the men’s, women’s and wheelchair events.

A World Cup spokesperson said:

“The Power of Togetherness will allow us to focus on human interest stories, emotional connections and a celebration of togetherness.

“Our refreshed World Cup identity showcases the values of inclusivity and boldness by incorporating all three tournaments into one logo which represents the uniqueness of RLWC2021.”

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!
