#3036097 Summer/Winter debate

Posted by LeeF on 22 November 2014 - 05:35 PM

Out of 12 games called off some are postponed presumably due to the weather?

Two of the walk overs are due to Thornhill going to the NCL and Illingworth not happy about being promoted

The split into winter or summer has split the game and ruined both winter and summer clubs. Participation as in many sports is significantly reduced and all the time BARLA/ RFL won't sort things out


#3034750 Ref attacked in amateur rugby league game

Posted by LeeF on 18 November 2014 - 06:19 PM

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


#3033431 Fev winding up petition?

Posted by LeeF on 15 November 2014 - 09:54 PM

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Thirdly it isn't withdrawn even if the debt is paid beforehand. You have to go to court to get it withdrawn or it still remains "live" until the hearing date and any other creditor owed money can use the HMRC petition to progress their claim for funds due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

Rumour that Ryan Hampshire may be signing for Leigh for the season. Anyone heard anything else?


#3006311 rfl responce

#2971956 Inelegible players

Posted by LeeF on 05 August 2014 - 06:10 PM

let the RFL decide whether we cheated,all the paper work was passed by the RFL as our chairman Mark Sawyer said in his statement. You got your 29 pts deduction for severe salary cap irregularities,giving certain players back handers & not just over 1 season by your bent & cheating chairman!!! And at the time I thought you were badly done by,and I know you've worked hard to try & get back to were are!! I was merely responding to been called cheats,like I say let the powers that be decide & if we are found guilty fair do's take it on the chin & move on!!


The statement didn't say that the RFL had passed all the paperwork otherwise why are they loking into it again

I actually think that you should be ok unlike a couple of others


#2969700 Points Deduction?

Posted by LeeF on 02 August 2014 - 06:41 AM

What's with all these Whitehaven fans getting involved you must be bored reading all these operational rules , anyone would think you are Ralph rimmer wannabes . Jog on wait and see what happens and go buy Dave woods some pie and peas he's getting hungry and tell him Peter roe says hi .


The one thing that Derwent isn't is a Haven fan.


#2968782 Points Deduction?

Posted by LeeF on 31 July 2014 - 05:43 PM

And of coarse as you are in the mix for relegation you would say that, dog eat dog and all that. As there has been nothing official from the club i will keep my thaughts on this one to myself. Apart from the obvious one that DR is a crock of ***** and the people that voted this idiotic system in have a lot to answer for. I await the clubs response on this.


Irrespective of who I support DR has been a farce from day 1 and this is just the type of finale that the system deserves - confusion and a mess all around


#2968444 Points Deduction?

Posted by LeeF on 31 July 2014 - 09:26 AM

If it is us, and we've used Fairbank either unwittingly or in full knowledge that he's ineligible, then we deserve all we get - no two ways about it.
If such a simple error has been made - and at such a crucial stage of an absolutely crucial season, then it's an absolute farce and an indictment of those in charge.
Hope I'm wrong though, and our legendary PR team confused 'loan deal' with 'dual reg'.


Whatever the outcome it shows what a mess the DR has become


#2962041 The Sun report 3 game ban for Sinfield

Posted by LeeF on 20 July 2014 - 10:49 AM

I'm all for a bit of banter on here but I think some people need to get this into perspective.? No sendings off in a 16-year top grade career, no-one was injured. Three games down to two with an early guilty plea seems very logical (to those without an axe to grind).


I wouldn't have a problem with that outcome but can see him going for a personal hearing and due to the unblemished track record then either SOS or a 1 match ban at which stage the TRL server will crash


#2944462 Halifax away!

Posted by LeeF on 14 June 2014 - 12:01 PM

I have just seen it on Facebook, LeeF, thanks.
 
Can't help thinking that once again we are dictated to by Wane.    Charnley isn't going to be on either wing and they have Goulding to come back in the centre and put Sarginson to FB, but instead we get p****d about again.


The announcement was made by the Club.

This is one of the major problems with DR as the SL club is in full control


#2942273 A question for any refs out there.

Posted by LeeF on 10 June 2014 - 07:10 AM

The "taking of 10" is a local rule usually used where if they kick for touch they will lose the ball in gardens etc

We were always advised that if taking 10 it should be done in a controlled manner I.e. Ball to ref who advanced the 10 metres and got the line set etc but this isn't in any laws or rules more a case of common sense

Hope this helps
