#3166371 Clues on Yorkshire Mens League set up 2015?

Posted by LeeF on 27 July 2015 - 08:17 PM

The future isn't the merit leagues at all. I never said that. The switch has saved the game from a far bigger decline that much is clear from the NWCL, Pennine league and Yorkshire Youth combination. There are problems in the game and they were inevitable the day Sport England money stopped artificially propping clubs up

The switch hasn't saved the game

The "new" summer season has just created a mess and confusion in the old "heartlands" leading yo less teams .and therefore matches

All sides are guilty to a greater or lesser extent and now need to wake up and try to save the game in both summer and winter before it is too late

Did LMS just grab hold of the ref there?

Yes he did

Should be a ban for that

#3154977 U7's matches suspended in NWC until clarity received over insurance from RFL

Good luck with that one.

I know that it is wishful thinking but there have been so many arguments/ disputes between various national & local governing bodies over recent years all of which just alienate players and volunteers

To fall out over 6 and 7 year olds is just stupid and nothing other than ego strutting and everything else that is wrong

Both sides need to stop and remember that we are talking about young kids playing RL and should put their egos and arguments to one side

#3147366 Disgraceful Sheffield

Where did I say that? You cry like a little girl, we point and laugh. It's a great thread.
And yes they beat us, as expected. Just. And acted like a pathetic bunch of moronic cry babies the entire game. While also hitting players late, high, off the ball constantly. Horrible team.

The rules are that every Leigh player who is tackled is fouled whereas all opponents who are tackled by Leigh players are guilty of over acting and not being able to take it

How have the two French lads been getting on at Whitehaven?

Playing well and have settled in

Trial now converted into permanent signings for rest of the season

#3131516 suspensions

There isn't any conspiracy or witch hunt against Salford. All the bans look fair based on the available evidence

The biggest problem Is that most teams play close to the disciplinary line and Salford are struggling to get the balance quite right

B samples are only tested if the A sample produces a positive

Results are usually back fairly quickly - it will depend on w.hat SLA the RFL have in place with the Testers

I suppose so - this one's always a bit  feisty and several players playing their old club. Needs one of the better refs on it really.

So he penalises them and sin bins 5. What more can he really do?

The players need to sort themselves out along with the coaches and not blame the refs all the time

#3047455 BARLA Yorkshire Cup Final - Postponed

Posted by LeeF on 20 December 2014 - 02:43 PM

If Fryston appeal and are successful then they have to play in the Final which makes a mockery of the Queens versus Upton game?Why wasn;t a Barla official there to check the teamsheet before the game started at the Sharlston game?A barla official should have the documentation to see who is banned, nip  this in the bud and stop all this nonsense before the game even starts.

Shouldn't the clubs know. Ultimately it us their responsibility not BARLAs

#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
