I dont understand why the head gasket should leak oil on the right side, it could be the valve cover leaking oil.........

What I meant is that it is impossible for the head gasket to leak oil there because there is no oil on that side of the head gasket............

It would mean that your valve cover could be leaking oil, there is a small weep hole on the right side of the engine head that if it leaks oil, will leak from this weep hole but it is actually the valve cover that is leaking.............
