Toll Bar have a cracking side at the moment, They have added Players with regional  amateur premier division experience, two ex RAF Regt players as well as half a dozen or more who have played professionally, IMO they would be a great addition to the Premier

But are they prepared to go up to the Premier

Irrespective of how well you think Bentham refuge the game & I thought he went well this tournament has shown that Bentham, Thaler and the rest are streets ahead of the Aussie ones

The player should be banned for life. There is NO excuse for this action

I refer for many years and there were attempts at intimidation but fortunately no assault

But that is the crux of the matter, the club as responded to HMRC and agreed repayment terms and have started paying it

The crux is that they didn't agree terms until after the petition

Firstly there has to be a debt that is overdue before HMRC or anybody else can issue a winding up petition

Secondly it is not a tactic of first choice. The club must have not responded to or agreed proposals beforehand

Thirdly it isn't withdrawn even if the debt is paid beforehand. You have to go to court to get it withdrawn or it still remains "live" until the hearing date and any other creditor owed money can use the HMRC petition to progress their claim for funds due

Lastly not paying HMRC in the first place will have cost the club legal fees etc in addition to the original debt
