Pretty dissapointing from a spectators point of view today.
Watched a very competitive match for 65 minutes. Kells were winning 10-12. At this point the Blackbrook players were under the impression that Hindley were beating Pilks 12-6. Blackbrook scored to make it 14-12 and news got out that Pilkington had gone 12-14 up.
From what we were told, the Blackbrook coaching staff and some of the players didn't want Pilkington (being rivals) winning the league and therefore told the players to throw the game. From the next kick off Blackbrook let the ball go dead, had a goal line drop out which they kicked approximately 15 yards and the Kells 6 walked through on the next play.
Very disappointing as, at the time, Blackbrook were on top and there is still a lot to play for in Div3. Big wraps to the Blackbrook number 3 who ignored his coaches and bust his ######.
Bit of a dampener on a very good game of Rugby
