Workington have complained to the Rugby Football League over Oldham's announcement that they had signed the centre Vince Fawcett. Workington, relegated from the Super League last season, maintain they still hold Fawcett's registration in Britain after his short spell for the Australian club, Parramatta, and have done no business with Oldham. "Oldham gave us the names of a few players they were willing to exchange but we weren't interested," said John Donovan, the chief executive, who values Fawcett at pounds 40,000.
FRIENDLY MATCHES: Huddersfield 40 Keighley 10; Leeds 6 Halifax 14; Wigan 32 St Helens 22. Postponed: Workington v Carlisle; Batley v Dewsbury.
