Palfrey’s performance earned him the maximum five points towards Championship One’s Player of the Year award at the end of the season.
Oldham captain Lewis Palfrey earned the praise of Roughyeds coach Scott Naylor after an outstanding display at Hemel.
Palfrey was superb at stand-off in Oldham’s 30-12 win. Naylor said: “Lewis played with a lot of freedom, looked very relaxed and played with a smile on his face.
“When he plays with confidence his natural ability comes out, which he’s got in bucket-loads. He’s an excellent player and he’s still got a lot more to give as well.
“Giving him the captaincy put some pressure on him, but he’s handing it, getting used to it and really performing well.”
