It promises to be a challenging and exciting season.Admission at Heywood Road, will cost £12 adults and £10 concessions, sit or stand all one price.
Rochdale boss Alan Kilshaw has described Hornets’ rivalry with Oldham as one of the fiercest in rugby league. Last year Roughyeds won the Law Cup with a 29-12 win at Rochdale and it should be a fantastic Law Cup game at Bower Field on  January 22 in the new year. 
Rochdale and Oldham are both in tier-two of the rugby league pyramid for the first time in more than a decade.
