The Roughyeds


Dewsbury v Oldham Preview

ROUGHYEDS have a chance to bounce straight back when they play Dewsbury Rams tomorrow evening, 7:30pm kick off.

With seven games remaining, while it is a short year, there is still plenty of rugby to be played before the end of the season.

After the bitter pill that was the Doncaster result, Oldham will be hungry to prove that they can beat the sides above them, after coming so close on numerous occasions already this season.

Pat Moran, one of the standout performers for Roughyeds in Sunday’s game, is ready to take it to the table toppers.

“We are not going to moan about Sunday – we’ll watch the video, learn from our errors and go, with a positive attitude, and take it to Dewsbury which will be a great game,” said the prop.

“It was through our own faults, be it mistakes, errors or penalties – we invited them into the game, but we will right those wrongs and be ready to go again on Friday.”

With a return to Boundary Park on the horizon next year, the new board of directors have gone all out to get Oldham back into the second tier.

New signings such as Pat Moran, Samy Kibula, and most recently Harvey Wilson on a month-long dual-registration, have bolstered Oldham’s already strong squad.

Nick Rawsthorne, a centre/winger with a track record of scoring tries, made his debut for Oldham at the weekend – and his form may be crucial come the end of the year.

After coming within an inch of beating Doncaster on three occasions as well as Dewsbury earlier this year, Roughyeds know what they need to put right.

“We just have to be better as a collective and cut out the basic errors,” said Roughyeds boss Stuart Littler.

“Nobody makes mistakes on purpose in life, myself included, but it’s how we learn from those and how we get better as a collective.”

Oldham will have to do without Kian Morgan and Samy Kibula when they make the trip up to West Yorkshire tomorrow, after they both landed One Match Penalty Notices during the 62-14 win over London Skolars two weeks back.

Morgan has thrived in recent weeks, having scored and assisted four tries in as many games.

Admission prices for the game are priced at £15 for adults and £2 for under-18s.
