The Roughyeds


Read 'Roughyed Review' on-line to get the 'inside view'

BRIAN McDermott has plenty of interesting things to say in his Online Programme notes for this Sunday’s Featherstone Rovers game at Bower Fold (3pm kick-off).

He speaks, in the main, about the Roughyeds' battling performance against the full-time, big-spending Toulouse Olympique, who have set their sights firmly on promotion to Super League and have prepared accordingly.

Just to give you a taste, he sums up like this:

“We defended to a level I doubt we’ve reached before; our attack looked threatening; and we had a kicking game on which we can build.”

Club chairman Chris Hamilton and captain Gareth Owen give you the “inside” take on THAT rousing performance against a team that is clearly going places and has put a few cricket scores on opponents this year.

To restrict them to 12 second-half points was very credible indeed. It’s fair to say they knew they had been in a game, and its also fair to say that Brian McDermott’s view is a good read about his views on rugby league and his thoughts on how we tackled a very similar challenge to the one we will face again this Sunday.

At £2.50, the 24-page programme is full of news, views and facts about the club and its players, especially winger Tommy Brierley and in-form forward Martyn Reilly, with whom our editorial team do Q and A features.

Dave Naylor looks at Featherstone and selects his Three To Watch, while Roger Halstead starts a new series in which he will turn the spotlight on the Ex-Players Association and the role it can play in the furtherance of rugby league in our borough.

There’s a detailed and Heritage-inspired look at our season-by-season ever-presents, going back to the year dot, and a flashback piece which recalls the excitement of a Grand Final involving Roughyeds and Featherstone at Headingley.

For £2.50 it’s all yours. Get it NOW and get it from the Roughyeds on-line store.
