Twitch to cover Womens Super League

The Betfred Women’s Super League returns on Sunday 18 April and the RFL, in association with In Touch productions, will show one live game each week via Twitch.

In the opening round of fixtures, reigning champions Leeds Rhinos entertain York City Knights as part of a double-header featuring a local derby between Castleford Tigers and Featherstone Rovers. Both games will take place behind closed doors at Sport Park Weetwood, Leeds, whilst at Warrington’s Victoria Park the Wolves take on Wigan Warriors and Bradford Bulls will play St Helens in the other Round 1 fixtures.

Warrington Wolves are one of the newcomers to the expanded, 10-club competition, the other being Huddersfield Giants who will make their Betfred Women’s Super League bow against the Wolves a fortnight later in Round 2.

The repeat of the 2019 Grand Final between Castleford and Leeds is scheduled for Sunday June 13, when there will be another derby across the Pennines as St Helens face Wigan.

There will be 10 rounds of fixtures during the regular season, with clubs playing each other once before the top four break away to take part in a play-off series with a Grand Final place at stake. The remaining six teams will compete for places in the final of the Betfred Women’s Super League Shield, with both finals taking place at the Emerald Headingley Stadium on Sunday 10 October.

Thomas Brindle, Betfred Women’s Super League General Manager, says:

“During the last week we have unveiled the National Lottery as a new commercial partner to the RFL and in particular Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League, we’ve published a new report demonstrating the significant social impacts of Women’s and Girls’ Rugby League – These Girls Can - and we’ve announced that October’s Grand Final will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

“Now, I’m pleased to announce that via Twitch we’ll be showing live action from the Betfred Women’s Super League every week of the regular season, with match coverage repeated later the same week on Our League. We had a really encouraging response when we showed some games on Twitch in 2019 – it takes us to a new, younger audience, with 15m daily active users and 76% of viewers aged 18-49.”

Club Cash

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.
