The game between Rochdale Mayfield and Bradford Dudley Hill has been called off today. The story is that Bradford Dudley Hill were unable to raise a team. This is a very poor situation.

Rochdale Mayfield are still in with an outside chance of 3rd place. It could have been that the game was important to other teams in the promotion / relegation battle.

Lets hope that the National Conference League take the action that is waranted in this situation.

Big Doug I'm sure ncl will act accordingly. BDH are a top club and I sure they feel worse than any body about the situation . You calling for punishment lacks class and compassion. Your club may be in trouble at some point how would you feel then if you had another club calling for your head

Looking at automatic relegation and a £500 fine as standard

My sympathy goes out to BDH ,I know how difficult it is to get a team on the field each week. I feel for the coaches, committee and players who have committed today only to be have let down by not having enough numbers. You are not alone in this scenario believe me.

Mayfield mentality I'm afraid! When the money runs out they might find themselves in trouble

They would have been able to put a team out if they were in for promotion. Where is the loyalty to your club. They knew or should have know what the results of their actions would be. If BDH get a big fine or worse relegation what does that show about what they think of their club.
Oh and by the way put another record on about paying players. As previously stated we have a good young side (Mat Calland excepted) that wants to play for the shirt. Mayfield have sent an example as to running a cub. If you don't think so go over one day and see the cub, ground, pitches and youth set up that they are running.
Put your own house in order befor calling Mayfield.

I'm sorry to hear this about BDH, they have a good set up over there with a hard working committee supporting them. Reading between the lines, the lads have seen that there are no promotion prospects etc., and instead of seeing the season out with basically nothing to play for have decided to joint a winter league. It's very disappointing for all concerned, including Mayfield.

As regards Mayfield paying players, I can't understand why they take offence at people mentioning it, when I was over at their place they made no secret of it.

Appreciate the well wishes been a tough end to the season with the winter starting, I'm sure we would have had a strong side if we were gunning for promotion as Doug pointed out as the lads still would have had something to play for I can assure you there's nobody more upset and embarrassed by the situation than the club

I really fear for the game. There seems to be very little player loyalty, in fact club loyalty as well, about these days, and most of us are having problems. I was amazed to hear Dudley Hill didn't have a full team yesterday. Fortunately, my own club have never failed a fixture in the NCL but we have had a couple of close calls. I remember being on a coach to Redhill with a bare 13, and most of them under 18's, vets and 'A' teamers. We had a vote if we should continue the journey or turn back and drop out of the NCL. I am glad we continued the journey. Another time we went to Wath Brow with a bare 13 and the same situation, including two over 50's! Feel sorry for the committee at Dudley Hill.

I agree. I feel sorry for BDH and their committee and coaches. The problem has been caused by the players. If that is because of the summer / winter debate then that is the problem that has to be addressed. Maybe the players that ducked Saturdays match at Mayfield should pay the fine that BDH may get. Then they might realise the consequence of their actions.
All the best to BDH club.

They are not the first and will not be the last, Playing rugby all year is diluting our sport ,
Think the level of punishment needs looking at , will serve no porpose relegating a team and inposing a large fine there are many teams struggling and when you have a hard working committee raising the financies and putting a team on the feild it's disheartening,
The level of commitment just isn't there from some (not all) of the players anymore

Good luck BDH
