Tommy Brierley suffers broken leg in Cougars game.

Date published: 30 March 2022

Oldham Rugby League Club, beaten 32-6 at home by Keighley Cougars in their opening Betfred League One game, will go to Hunslet on Sunday without right-wing Tommy Brierley, who suffered a broken leg in the Cougars game.

"It's too early to speculate on how long he'll be out; we'll know more when he has his appointment at the fractures clinic," said coach Stuart Littler.

Brierley was injured near the end of the game when he went down awkwardly in a heavy tackle on a kick return.
