Workington Town coaches unhappy at blank weekend

Workington Town coaches Gary Charlton and Martin Oglanby feel frustrated that once again their side will have to sit-out a weekend of rugby action before they play again.
Town hadn’t played since Good Friday’s derby victory over Whitehaven until yesterday’s 58-0 demolition of North Wales Crusaders, and don’t have a game next weekend.
Charlton says: “I would really like to bring forward a game from later in the season to next Sunday but I know the Rugby League won’t sanction that.
“It’s particularly frustrating when you get a bit of momentum going with a good victory and then you have to sit out the following week. That’s now happened twice to us in quick succession.
“Championship One sides aren’t going to be in abundance for the fifth round of the Challenge Cup and I think there’s only Oldham involved next week.”
His coaching buddy Oglanby added: “It’s all stop-start and I really do think the Rugby League could plan things better. I’d like to think they will look at organising it better next year.
“There are times when a break might be welcome, say when a team has a lot of injuries, but in general terms sides that have had a good result just want to get out and play the following week to build more momentum.”
Town scored eleven tries in their victory over the Crusaders with seven of those coming in the first-half.
