League places determined by points percentage

LEAGUE places in both the Betfred Championship and Betfred League 1 will be determined in the coming season by points percentage because clubs and the RFL accept that games might be affected by Covid.

Fixtures and kick-off times are always subject to change, but even more so this year because of the pandemic.

Postponements will be allowed if a team loses seven or more players for Covid-related reasons and if there isn’t a free date for a rearranged game, the fixture will be cancelled.

The RFL has also confirmed that, in the interests of player welfare, golden-point extra time will be suspended this year, although it is planned to reintroduce it in 2022.

Over the next few days, the sport’s governing body will be working with clubs, broadcasters and streaming partners to determine exactly when opening Championship games will be played over Easter weekend and to also confirm final arrangements for the first round of the Betfred Challenge Cup, to be played over the weekend of March 20 and 21.

Championship games played behind closed doors will be live streamed on the Our League app and website with home season-ticket holders given free access to their club’s live stream and all other fans able to watch via pay-per-view. Some Betfred Challenge Cup games will be live streamed by the BBC and Betfred with others available on Our League.

Exact details covering games in round two onwards of the Championship will be confirmed in the coming weeks when, hopefully, Government announcements will give a clearer indication of when fans will be back in the grounds.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
