Oldham RLFC

The Roughyeds


It's the George Ford show in England World Cup win

WE don’t normally use anything about England RU on this website, but how can we not laud their performance in beating Argentina 27-10 with all 27 points coming from the boot of Oldham-born George Ford, who won the man-of-the-match award in Marseille with six penalties and three drop goals.

It was the Sale Sharks player’s record points haul for England.

He said afterwards:

“Drop goals were always part of our plan. We went a man down early on, but the boys up front were incredible. It’s never about one man. We are a tight-knit group. We have had a lot to deal with this last ten days and this is only the start — game one.”

The win was all the more impressive because England’s Tom Curry was sent off in the first few minutes.

Ford played rugby league as a boy at Waterhead and he is the middle son of Mike Ford, the former Oldham RLFC player and ex-coach in Union who is now back living in Saddleworth and is the Roughyeds’ managing director as well as interim head coach.
