Naylor questions decisions

Oldham coach Scott Naylor says his side isn’t “getting the rub of the green” from the officials following their loss to Sheffield yesterday.

The Eagles won 54-24 at Bower Fold and Oldham had Richard Lepori sent off for striking.

Said Naylor: “I didn’t understand some of the decisions that went against us and I don’t seem to get clarification about questions I’m asking every week.

“We certainly don’t seem to be getting the rub of the green.

“We led 12-0 and everything was going okay, but we then had one of those bad patches which we seem to go through in every important game.

“In terms of our toughness and our attitude we switched off for six minutes and we were suddenly 14-12 down.

“Then we had the sending off and we had to play a full-time professional outfit with only 12 men on the field in extremely hot conditions.

“The game had gone at half-time when we trailed 26-12 and faced the second half a man down, but in those circumstances I thought the players coped okay.

“They tried hard and never gave up and that’s commendable.”
